We stayed here three nights, arriving late but given instructions so we could access our room. This is actually a hard one to review as there are positives and negatives but the price was amazing for its location and the view. Reception has limited hours but there are after hours you can call and a firm no parties rule (good)....

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 5 nights. The room was very clean and neat . My kids slept on the pullout couch, but not very comfy. It's in a great location across the road from the beach, local shops, cafés & restaurants. Our room overlooks the swimming pool! Very friendly staff. Underground car parking. Would stay there again....

A really good spot for our weeks stay - close to eateries, on the Strand, opposite beach, a 5 min walk to cbd and other eateries. We had a good size room with air con, a balcony looking over the beach, a kitchenette and big tv. A nice well maintained pool and outdoor eating area is inviting.

I stayed here for a few nights on business, the location is great for a run in the morning or evening. A few good places to eat near by and a nice pub just 100m away. The rooms are clean and tidy and the owners are just great, they were extremely helpful. Going back this March and will continue to...

I did a little research before deciding to book Waters Edge, The Strand. I made the right choice. Very reasonably priced. Great location, opposite the sea front, great room, I had a courtyard room which had access to the pool, views from the pool area are great. The courtyard was very spacious. So convenient for restaurants, pub, ice cream parlour...

“Best rooms are the oceanviews ones at the front, we could hear the surf crashing on the beach at high tide, but is wasn't noisy.”
