Stayed here at the start of the wet season, rooms spacious with comfortable beds but the small space to climb into the bath for the shower may cause some issues for less agile people. Parking available for $10, can come and go as often as you like which is handy. The breakfast was fairly average but having said that, I...

Every year we keep going back as a group of 6 0r 7 and stay at this hotel. The rooms are very comfy and serviced daily. In the area there are many restaurants as well as the hotel. Outside is a lovely maintained park area as well as a wave pool, and enclosed beach area. It is a 10minute walk...

My husband and I have stayed here twice now. The most recent time was at the end of November. We chose this hotel because parking is easy, it's close to lovely restaurants on the water and the rooms are comfortable. Only negatives would be towels are too thin and could do with some better pillows or more options but I...

Love this motel. Staff very helpful and great location, walking distance to everything. Comfortable bed and lovely clean room. Def need to get a non slip mat for shower though, as I did slip. Rather than just a not saying request a mat at the front desk. Sadly the air con didn't really cool the room down.

Friendly staff, great room with a view of the waterfront. Restaurants and cafe's just outside and walking distance to the hotel. Walking distance to the city center and also the wharf for more dining options. The wave pool is just around the corner of the hotel and there is also a saltwater lagoon for swimming as well.

Location was good and rooms were fine but customer service could be improved. Room wasn't made up and one of the staff members on last day had a very blasé attitude about a number of issues including the hotel keys she stuffed up several times and it took me ages to get into room. The room was also a long...
