Hassle Free Accomodation

Parking available Walking distance to shops, beach, food, bars & transport/trams Love the fact it's Hassle free. Value for money I paid an extra few $$ for a 4pm late check out on the check out date which was much needed. I have never had that kind of flexibility elsewhere at any 5 star or 4 star let alone the service from the fantastic staff. It's definatley my first choice when heading to surfers for the weekend.

My night in

First off, i booked this in a hurry. Secondly it takes 30mins to find the car park, although you can't use the car park until you have booked in. Booking in was okay, they were helpful if not bubbly. Room, bed very hard, carpet full of stains and wear and tear, 1 pretty thin towel for morning shower, and a very 'musty' smell overall. Not the best place I've stayed, however on the up side the location was great for my needs. Perhaps more signs to where front is located.

NEEDS MORE

They didn't do anything special for us we did tell them we would check out early and told us we would get a refund and didn't end up happening, the bathroom needed to be updated as well as other things inside the room, on our booking it said we would get a room which had a kitchen which our room ended up didn't having. The general facilities of the location like things you can do inside the hotel were awesome. so great for a young person not for a family's

Poor customer service

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. Before this experience I have found it suitable. This time when I asked for some drinking water I was told to get water from the sink in the bathroom! Not so good eh. The staff were quite rude when they spoke to me.

Does the Job

What can I say, for the price more than happy with the room. A large room with a clean bed. Ok it was refurbed 20 years ago and the water pressure could have been better in the sink. But its 50% less than other places.

Great place to stay, close to everything!

We booked a room at this hotel for 3 nights, before reading all the reviews from this website and others (which were all universally negative.) Booking through this website, we managed to stay at this hotel for $55 a night, for three nights; we just needed somewhere to stay while visiting the theme parks. We were expecting two single beds in a tiny room and maybe aircon (basically a slight upgrade on a hostel). Maybe we were just lucky this time, however we were put into a room on the third floor where we were greeted with two double beds, a tv with satellite tv, aircon and quite a large bathroom. After reading the reviews from other people that have stayed here, we couldn't believe how good it was (and for $55 a night, no less!). The hotel comes with free undercover parking and you can also purchase wifi if you require that. It was a great comfortable stay for the three nights we were there, and would definitely stay there again.
