          Great place to stay. Beds comfy. Could walk to town or free shuttle. Taxi $9 from centre. Large room (stayed in the two bedroom). Nice lounge to relax and have a drink at. Great value for us. Very helpful staff.

          Enjoyed the outlook from the ocean room . Spacious and comfortable beds and comfortable setting. Enjoyed the in house dinning and bar staff making good cocktails. Quiet cosy rooms slept well on the queen size beds. Happy to stay there again.
