We stayed in one of the single storey units. Although it was clean and well equipped, the room was definitely showing its age. The bathroom is a tight squeeze - a sliding door would be a better choice. The separate toilet is a plus. The reclining chairs were very comfortable. The reception staff were very helpful with advice on local...

We were expecting an old beach hotel, but when we arrived the staff were lovely and gave us a whole heap of ideas of things to do in the area. The room was very clean and modern. The fully equipped kitchen was great with everything we needed to do some cooking. The couch was great and the bedroom was nice....

Excellent value in what looks like an old and tired hotel. They have redone the place into two story villas which are quiet and well appointed. My only complaint would be the shower head it too high for me (163 cm) but my husband (194cm) thought it was perfect.

We stopped here on a tour of the East Coast of Tasmania and really pleased with the apartment. Good air con, tv , comfy bed and shower. Good parking. Quiet. Friendly guy on reception who pointed out nearest attractions. Bit far from the centre of St. Helens. Recommended.

Wow.. this was such a wonderful surprise. It's such a beautiful little villa. Almost like an apartment with the living area, kitchenette, separate bedroom and bathroom.
