Great location, welcoming and efficient staff. The room was a little ‘tired’ and the bathroom could do with an upgrade but the ocean view made up for it. Easy access to The Esplanade and a short walk into the city centre.

Sorry not a toddler friendly pool but across the road in the park there is an awesome kids playground with water play area. And further up the path is a great community pool area with suitable kids pool.
