We loved staying here and can’t wait to come back. The hotel is directly across from Town Beach and a lot of walks including the spectacular coastal walk. Lots of food options near by. The 1bdrm accom we had was massive with everything you would need for a holiday. Lovely, clean and quiet.

View was fantastic, rooms were huge. Heated indoor pool was great on cold winter days. Super convenient to beach and only 10min walk into restaurants. Staff very responsive to two issues - room clean wasn't booked in and washing machine needed cleaning.
