BACK GARDEN UNIT WAS VERY QUIET AND PEACEFUL. NICE LITTLE GARDEN TERRACE OFF THE ROOM WITH 2 CHAIRS AND A TABLE. LITTLE TIRED COULD USE SOME UPDATING I.E. CLOCK, FRIDGE. BEDS ARE VERY HARD SO IF YOU HAVE A BAD BACK MAY NOT BE THE BEST. CLOSE TO BARS AND PUBS AND WALKING DISTANCE TO BEACH AND TOWN. FRIENDLY HELPFUL RECEPTION. BREAKFASTS ARE PRICEY $15.00 FOR CONTINENTAL AND $25.00 FOR FULL BREAKFAST BUFFET.The room had a great set up however, there were cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling, we moved the single beds together for our kids and exposed a whole lot of scrap food and rubbish that was hidden under the sofa, the TV didn't work which was compensated by a free Breakfast but they didn't ask us what our style of cooked eggs we preferred. And we didn't bother to use the pool because it looked like a pond for the fishes rather than used for swimming. The positives... Your receptionist Faye (I hope I spelt that right) was amazing and was always helpful. The bed was an absolute dream to sleep on and no complaints about the aircon :)
