    Well located near to beach. Pleasant staff, all to expectations or better. Noise from neighbouring units slamming their door at night, otherwise good.

    Close to Beach
    Check in quick and easy. Room dated but clean. Carpet has stains, would be nice to have a facelift on room but size, comfort everything else was great. So close to the Beach and other amenities

    Great location near beach, playground and take away places.. Very spacious unit. Friendly helpful staff. Even left instructions on how to watch the big rugby game! Stains on carpet made poor first impression.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Beautiful Beachcomers.
    A great place to stay. We went for a long walk along the beach and watched a fanulous sunset. Close to city centre. Close to Richmond area. Lovely room and clear information on hotel's amenities. Friendly welcome at reception with clear directions on where to go for meals. Thank you, Beachcomer.

    Great location
    Great location next door to fab gastro pub and the park and beach across the road. Surprisingly quiet rooms. Aged but comfy and spacious. Staff genuinely lovely and helpful. Only drawbacks were that the Wifi connection wasn’t reliable/consistent, and the cleaning was average.

    Very good 8.0
    Very nice staff, very good value for money in the summer season, my only complaint would have been the lack of air conditioning. Probably would not normally be a problem except that it was an extremely hot week. There was a very good fan in the room but it wasn’t quite up to the job given how hot it was.
