Located right across the beach was beautiful, having our own car park was a bonus as well not worrying about what time we returned to the hotel. They were happy to allow us to check in late by leaving the key under the mat which was we were so grateful due to us coming from 5 hours we didn't stress rushing to get their. :) 10 stars

The location is perfect. The bathroom is a little run down but the beds were comfortable.

Rooms are basic but have all you need. Could do with more attention on the cleaning though, especially at $290 a night on a public holiday.
