As others have mentioned you are paying for the location 3mins walk from the beach but really not worth the price of the room which is pretty average. Aircon can't be adjusted, bathroom basin plug needs to be pulled up and turned to the left to release water (I had to get instructions from the from desk, not sure why they can spend a few extra $'s and have a spring loaded basin plug) Toiled paper 1 ply, bright lights outside window which curtains don't block , net curtains on outside of main curtains instead of inside, stain on lounge. Door didn't close properly when leaving unless you made sure to open it wide for momentum to close properly ( I left it open unintentionally twice) Foxtel movies charged at $19.95 . Reception area seemed a bit cluttered. Would not stay again at the price.

You’re paying for the location not accommodation
You certainly pay for the location not the accommodation! For a 4.5 ⭐️ Hotel with rates north of $300 P/N it fell way short of our expectations more inline with the 3.5⭐️ Ibis down the road. Receipt was efficient and friendly but as soon as we entered the lift it all went down hill the lift walls & doors were putrid and cracked tiles on exit. The room was OK we upgraded to a harbour view room but the windows were cover in salt so that was a waste. The carpet to me looked grotty or bad choice of colour? The safe had been smashed open, destroyed and unusable but the bathroom was OK though! But minibar was empty. We booked the inclusive breakfast deal but when we were seated we given a limited option on extra’s food was tasty but we declined the self serve coffee and left for the cafe next door as the AC vents were dripping condensation on us from slimy mouldy vents in the ceiling. Sad really whether it’s a result of the COVID downturn or just bad maintenance it poorly reflected its 4.5⭐️ Rating and although it is beachside you wouldn’t know from inside as view are restricted to a few overpriced rooms and limited vista’s
