Beautifully refurbished hotel
Perfect location - close to CBD and Strand area. Compact rooms but functional. Completely refurbished ‘old style’ motel with beautiful pool/bar/restaurant area. Great value for money - could be noisy on Fri/Sat nights - don’t know though as had midweek stay

Ok for one ight
We stopped here for one night travelling down the east coast before we reached Airlie Beach. First impressions were great hotel looks lovely pool area good with a lot of seating. Couldn’t check in until 2pm but got use of full facilities and could leave bags in baggage room which was good. Bedroom had what we needed comfy bed and clean towels however when taking a shower found hairs all over the floor and the glass of the shower was very dirty. I spilt water on the floor filling the kettle as it doesn’t fit in the sink, on wiping the floor with tissue it was black so obviously hadn’t been cleaned in a long time. The bed side table had pubic hair on. We made a hot drink to find the milk was stale one was open and one was frozen. On checking out we told the receptionist about the matter to her response that the rooms are clean and we were wrong. May I add the bar staff in the Italian restaurant On the rooftop were lovely and very welcoming. An ok stay if it’s one night passing through. Cleaning overall needs attention
