6/10 Good

A great location but …
A great location but no lift - very hard for this couple of retirees to drag our suitcases up & down the stairs. And the fact that you have to “rent” beach towels, pay additional for extra tea/coffee etc. was a bit cheap!!!

8/10 Very good

Clean, comfortable and convenient accommodation.
Great, quiet location - 150 metres to the beach and only a 5-10 minute walk to the shops, restaurants and wharf. Clean and tidy rooms and the hosts/managers were very friendly and welcoming. Free undercover parking, washing facilities and pool just outside our room. While the rooms would be considered a little dated, they were clean, comfortable and convenient, we’d definitely stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Well Worth It
Well located within easy walking distance of both the beach and the shopping / dining precinct. We stayed 4 nights and utilised the in-room and BBQ cooking facilities which were well set up with strong easy-to-clean utensils. The pool was lovely and the heating made it more pleasant to swim in than other hotel pools in June. It was very quiet at night and we would definitely stay here again. The managers were welcoming and friendly throughout our stay.

4/10 Fair

6 night stay. Asked for coffee/milk day 3. Male: "Go up to the shop like everyone else," before reluctantly parting with a small amount. Female: knocked at my door with half jar of somone's leftovers, then pushed my door open to point out where I should have read extras not included. Accomodation $1000 plus. Extras $1? Will not stay again.
