Basic and clean, amazing views, no air conditioning in our room. Staff were very friendly - I accidentally left a pair of sunnies in the room and got a call about 15 minutes after I had left the property to let me know they were there.

Very convenient location and a nice view of the beach. The breakfast buffet has many varieties and surely is a good deal. The hotel room and facilities are a bit outdated and old, which needs a refurbishment. Overall a happy stay in this hotel.

Highly recommend. Very nice hotel with very good location, close to beach, tram station and shopping centre. And we great view for the New Year's fire work. Only the lift delay as the hotel has been quite busy over the New Year.
