Beware booking with them. They flat out refused to accept my confirmed booking and forced me into a cancellation. I gave up given how much stress it was causing me. They may appear reasonably priced but beware booking with them as you might end up in the situation I did.

My family and I had a one night stay in adjoining rooms and had a nice stay. One room had a kitchen/dining set up and the other was more a hotel room with bed and bathroom which suited us perfectly.

Great location as close to restaurants and beach and walking trail along cliffs. Good for kids. Older property but well maintained and all facilities you would want. I had lovely view every morning. Undercover secure parking

We stay here quite regularly. Perfect location if you love the sound of the waves crashing on the shore at night. It's getting dated but still clean & comfortable. Last time we stayed they now require a deposit for the carpark key. Which took weeks to get back. For a customer that has been visiting for many years I felt...

Located right across the road from the ocean this place is great, tidy rooms and excellent service plus amenities too. They are close to cafes and restaurants and you can catch the sunrise of you are up early enough! Recommend to all and very well priced for a seaside location.

Been looking forward to this getaway for two months. It was short lived I am very disappointed in the cleanliness of our room. The carpet was stained and dirty, the screen door was dirty there was dust throughout the room. Next to the small fridge was filthy. The views are beautiful but we wont be returning or recommending this place...

Happy with accommodation. Good price and spectacular view. Shame to see glass sliding doors hadn't been cleaned and we're covered with children's finger marks. Reception staff not very friendly Would still stay again as central, comfortable, affordable and great view

We stayed two nights over the long weekend and although the location and view from balcony is perfect it totally lacked cleanliness. Apartment 50A was in need of a a refurbishment however if it was clean it would not have mattered. We paid $420.00 for 2 nights for a one bedroom apartment which is acceptable but we were very disappointed...

Stayed overnight on a Saturday during school holidays (there for a wedding). King bed was comfy, great blackout curtains and room had tea/coffee facilities, foxtel, great little outside balcony and beaut shower and spa. We didn't get to use the pool, but looked inviting and popular. They offered a $10 breakfast deal at adjacent restaurant, but didn't use it Only...

4 nights rooms clean, great positioning across the road from the beach. Good deal with breakfast next door. Ask for a room with a view, family friendly, limited Foxtel channels, DVD player, a cabs fans, pools and spas.
