    Good location, but essentials not up to scratch

    We accept that it was a "Budget Room" however, such essentials as toaster, hair dryer, a cupboard (even if small) etc. were missing. Further more on one of the days our room wasn't cleaned and towels replaced and all of the door and window earrings were filthy dirty !

    3 night Budget Room stay was ok.

    Excellent location. Budget Room was ok. The description and pictures of it were accurate. We were happy with what we got for our money. Only issue was a bit noisy with some disrespectful guests making quite a lot of noise till 1pm on one of our 3 nights.

    It is close to the beach and near the center of the city. Thus, it is convenient for a walk.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I liked nothing about this property 😔 Rooms smelt & bathrooms were dirty. No hot water or pressure - half filled bath Only option for 4 adults to bath. Leak at entrance so had to walk in puddles. Only access to room was through housekeeping laundry - when asked for key to front entrance we were told there wasn't one. Even though we booked so we could use bistro/bar for convince, we were unable to gain access or get food (even take away back to room). I will NEVER return to this hotel. Paid over $700 to stay 2 nights in accommodation when I could paid $100 to stay at a caravan park that would of been nicer. Very disappointed
