The room and bathroom was very generous. One block away from where Ironman 5150 started. One block away from cycle shop. Staff were very accommodating especially with early breakfast on race day. Ten minutes from airport.

Share a drink at the bar with like-minded guests, or take a walk to the beach, which is just a stone's throw away. To add to the homely atmosphere, familiar home cooked meals are available to order off our light meals menu.
