A tired old hotel in need of some TLC. In saying that, the rooms were very clean and spacious. No lifts, just old stairs to each level. If you have a walking disability, ask for a ground floor room. Breakfast was basic, cereal and toast, tea/coffee and juice. A good view across to the beach and just one street down...

As the title says, i don't know what everyone is sooking about, i guess guests don't check the star rating before they stay at places! IT'S A 3 STAR HOTEL, IT'S NOT A 4 STAR!! We are currently staying here on the very top level in an ocean view spa suite, we both agree it's great value for money based...

Reception was nice and friendly and it was a quick ckeck-in. The Garden Suite is a separate single storey Block. It was summer, flowers were about to bloom in the garden and it was nice and peaceful. We parked our car right infront our Unit 131. The bedroom and living room are separate. There is a sofa bed in the...

We booked the spa suite for 1 night. The room was clean enough, but everything was very old. The outside of the hotel needs updating. We left our 2 year old sons bucket and spade in the room by accident after we checked out, and when my husband went to get it, reception wouldn't go and get it, and wouldn't...

I had surprised my husband for our first wedding anniversary, booked the executive spa room for the king size bed, private balcony, complimentary breaky, and, of course, the spa. Got there at 2pm. Room was awful, ground level so it had a view of a tree and a footpath. The king size bed was 2 uncomfortable singles pushed together. There...

When we checked into The Continental, we were told that we were in a Garden Suite - very fancy, we thought. Not for long... These rooms are in a block at the rear of the hotel that look like a condemned block of public toilets. Doors wouldn't shut properly, the car park was dreadful - even the check-in guy warned...
