Our faults I suppose. When looking at this place all you see in the ad is the great views of the harbour. Excellent you say as you click away on Booking.com.

Then when you arrive you discover you're in a peach coloured room that has 80's painted all over it without air-conditioning or screens on the window situated right out the back of the hotel facing nothing, seeing nothing. Not only 'out the back' in another wing, but at the back half of the wing that's at the back. You'd need a drone to get a view from here.

Never mind you say, at least you'll get a good nights sleep because it's quiet.

Then you realise the bed was designed by The Flintstone's Barney Rubble. Must have been, because it was like sleeping on a rock. Woke up with two sore hips and a crook back.

All I can say is if you'd like to stay here, do your homework and ensure you've got the room you thought you were paying for!!!!

Hi TerryAustralia2015

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It's disappointing to read that you didn't have an enjoyable stay with us. We have 142 rooms that vary in style and location that cater for a wide variety of people.

We have recently updated all our linen, toweling and bathroom amenities, the next upgrade is to install brand new bed bases, this should be completed in the next couple of months.

I do hope we are able to host you again so that you are able to see first hand the enchantments we have completed.

regards
Brad Coelho

We stayed in the cottages on the front of the harbour. They were quiet, clean and neat.
Spacious for our family of 6. Bathroom was very generous. Appreciated the kitchen/prep area.
Lovely warm staff who always greeted us and stopped for a chat.
Neat Bed linen, comfy beds and I really wanted to take the amazing pillow home.

we stayed two nights in a motel style accommodation. the views from our room were great. the room itself was clean but basic. the décor definitely needs updating. the staff at the reception desk were friendly.

Great location at the top of the harbour, 5 minute walk down stairs to wharves,pub, restaurants,cafes. Friendly staff. Rooms vary from street level, upper harbour views (access from outer stair way or car park, garden view rooms. Garden view rooms (we stayed in) have a day bed as a lounge, that was showing age,not comfortable. Bar restaurant nice, bar/ cafe has a terrace over looking harbour.

Originally we were in one of the joined cottages Lettes cottage, upon entering the room there was a very strong unbearable smell. We asked for another room which they gave no problem. Stayed in the top floor of the federation cottage. Room was nice, good bathroom and a balcony. Nice view of the bay
