According to "2014 Your Guide to Western Australia" booklet, it looked good, but the reality is far from it. Run down hotel, my room door did not lock properly, the reception forgot our wake up call, in fact, the guy was asleep when we checked out. Thank God, we had 2nd alarm clock for back up. Most of the guests... More

As stated in previous posts this hotel has seen better days, however for the price and location so close to the beach I love this hotel. Within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants. I have been coming here for years and feel so lucky they are here at all and not shut down.

A very disappointing, tired hotel. The rooms were dark and the pool area cramped - it didn't have a good 'feel' about it. The only good points were that is did have a pool, the cost was reasonable and it was a short walk to the beach.

The manager went out of his way to accommodate our request for an early breakfast as we had a medical appointment to get to., We appreciated his kindness. Good place to stay to enjoy the beautiful beach . Joan Johansson Wagin WA

I stayed here in December on a business trip to Perth. I would not stay at this hotel on a business trip. It is a bit tired and does need an upgrade. Ironing arrangements very poor. Have to get iron and small board from reception. I had difficulties using the small board and it took me a lot longer to... More

Very basic old 70's hotel in a top location, close to shops, beach, pub and easy transport. I don't recommend it for families or honeymoon...but it is a good overnight stay on a tight budget. Clean, staff is friendly, have parking.

Staff very friendly and service good, however the hotel looks like it needs considerable work to bring it up to standard. The bathroom was very average, only one place to hang a towel, the other on a drying line stretched across the room. Very basic, the hotel's main asset is its location, in my opinion priced a little high for... More

We chose this Hotel as is close to daughters residence.

This hotel is relatively cheap, the staff are friendly and helpful and it is close to the beach. It needs an upgrade of its facilities and repairs that have been done are obvious. Foxtel did not work and the double bed was up against a wall allowing access from one side only. I have only seen this in London. The... More
