We booked for one night via booking.com. On arrival we were given a basic unrenovated room which was not very pleasant. Cramped with no outlook. Window looked out onto walkway direct into the carpark. Very depressing. The concrete stairs were in desperate need of painting as was the door to the room. Not a pleasant welcome. On departure Receptionist asked...

This was a clean, modern room with a king size bed. Quality fittings and professional service by all staff during our 2 night stay. Position is excellent, overlooking the bay. We were in room 15 and while it did not have a view, it was very quiet. Only negative was the toilet is too close to the glass shower panel.

This was a very comfortable hotel about 1km out of town along the Esplanade. When we checked in (we'd booked a basic room) we were offered a $10 upgrade. This room had been recently renovated and was in first class condition. Bed was extremely comfortable. Bathroom was modern. Free Wifi was quite fast (it seemed there were few other guests,...

Stayed over night as a couple. Staff super friendly and ample parking. Very basic rooms, dated but had the essentials. Wasn't in the room other than to sleep. If your looking for a stop over then it's fine, otherwise if its a romantic getaway probably not.

Our apartment was very nice, clean and comfortable. It was serviced daily - which we didn't expect. We stayed here during the 70.3 ironman event and was close to all facilities and amenities. Each night was quiet so we had a decent sleep and the bed was very comfy. My husband doesn't always sleep well away from home, but he...
