Positive Reviews

Walking distance to beach and town centre

The hotel is ideally located for a beach holiday with Four Mile beach being one-minute walk away. The start of Macrossan Street, the main shopping strip, is also close by and local shops, restaurants and bars are within a five minute walk.

Facilities are second to none

The rooms have been described as well presented, charming, bright and stylish. All you need for a relaxing home away from home experience is provided, including a well equipped kitchenette and a balcony or patio with private barbecue facilities.

Cheerful staff think of everything

The staff have been described as friendly, helpful, thoughtful and efficient. Guests reported that the management team have put a lot of thought into what guests might need for a beach side holiday and have provided a range of free to borrow equipment including beach towels, sun umbrellas, beach chairs, ice boxes, books, Frisbees and bicycles.

Negative Reviews

Small swimming pool

Guests reported that the pool area is small and suitable for more than a handful of guests to swim in at any one time.

Many stairs and no lift service

There is not lift service and apartments are accessed by stairs. Guests warned that if you have mobility issues this may not be the right place for you.

Some rooms are noisier than others

Guests reported that the walls are not well insulated against noise and depending on the location of your apartment you may be subject to more noise from other guests. Rooms overlooking the swimming pool for example can be noisy when there are many guests socialising and playing music.
