It was clean and suitable for our needs. Few places will accommodate a family of seven for a reasonable price. Unfortunately our hot water wasn't working, but thankfully it was a hot day and wasn't really necessary.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was on a budget when I booked this hotel and was worried that the room would be awful turns out my fears were not warranted as my family and I had a wonderful time staying here, kids loved the pool which is where we spent most of our time even in the pouring rain, the rooms themselves were nice but basic as you would expect in a budget hotel my only issues were the ceiling fan in the lounge room which was useless (could be fixed by adding a pedestal fan to the room) and the lack of power points to plug phones etc in to charge, there was only 1 spare outlet in the lounge room and none in the bedroom, the complex was very secure and although there was a threat of Cyclone we felt very safe, I would definitely recommend staying here for a budget traveller
