Hotel is nice with great location

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
I really enjoyed my stay here. Breakfast buffet very good, service good, location very convenient and easy walk from shops/restaurants and about 10 min walk from wharf. The internet room charge was the only fee I considered a little pricey at $24.95/day but they also have a internet kiosk that you can pay every 15 min you use it! The pool area is fabulous with food and drink service too. There is a staffed desk to assist with booking day tours and activities right in the lobby, too.

Good Value for the price

The room was clean and comfortable and an excellent value for the price we paid (about $ AUD). We did not spend the extra money for the oceanview, but most of the day the tide was out and it looked like a large mud flat. It looked like the bathrooms were recently remodeled.
