    Best family hotel great Staff. Will to help you all the time. The Restaurant is great. The breakfast is out of their world everything you want if it nor there they will get it for you. You like your bacon very crisp they will do it for you. Eggs sunny side up you get it. Great free bus trip into town and back. Been here at this Hotel 6 times. Like coming home.

    Not enough water for drinking in fridge. Wish they would have cuts of fruit trays there as well.

    I have been to this hotel for 6 visits. It is the best Hotel because they treat you like family. The staff are the best, they know you by your Christian name, always welcome with a smile. The best dining room restaurant is great, they will go out of their way to make what you like. One year I loved their homemade bread they made one for me to take home, one year it was my birthday they gave me a surprise in my room was a birthday cake and a bottle of wine. One year I was rushed to hospital would you believe it they had fresh sandwiches sent to the hospital for me with no charge. Housecleaning is the best clean everyday. Everything is so clean. Great car parking. We always get a room oceanview. I will be on my own. I am hope they will have a disable free for me oceanview for me. If you want the best family friendly hotel please stay here.

    The staff were great and we had a wonderful time.

    We loved the room it was comfortable, modern and the view were beautiful. We had our car but the complimentary shuttle service to the city centre was a good added extra.

    Superb

    Staff were professional and helpful. The facilities were clean, neat & stylish. The view from our room overlooking the ocean was wonderful.

    Bit far away from city centre to walk everyday (courtesy bus was available but only hourly) I would have like lounges or relaxed lounge chairs in the sports bar section for late arvo snacks/drinks - the current decor is tables & chairs similar to the restaurant which were far too formal for this type of area.

    The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable and clean. Being a good distance from the city centre I liked the 'free' drop off to and from the centre of town. The breakfasts are great and copious especially if one has a busy day ahead.

    Superb

    A good location away from the noise and bustle of the town centre, yet within easy reach of the towns facilities. There was a free bus service into the town at hourly intervals. We had a room on the fifth floor with views over the sea which was well appointed and spacious.

    Hotel and staff were excellent..undone a bit by the poor service for dinner at the restaurant. Food was good but took about an hour and a half - there were few people to serve. Monday evening. Thanks,Bill Withers.
