This hotel looks a bit old and dated from the outside but wow! When you step inside it is terrific. It is on the waterfront, and even if your room is on the side street you can still see the sea. It is central to everything we wanted and a pleasant 5 minute walk to everything we needed. The coastal walk is straight across the road. Many Asian and other restaurants are a one to two minute walk away and the post office and supermarket a short five minute and 10 minute walk away. The room was large, comfortable and quiet even though the street is busy.
The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The car park is straight out the front door.
This is the only hotel I have ever come across that offers a breakfast alternative (for those that don't want to eat much) of coffee and as much toast as you want for $5/head. A great idea for those who don't want much.
We wish we had the time to stay longer. Next time we will !
