          Stayed in King Suite for the week, was excellent and clean, nice hot water pressure, staff friendly and super helpful. Could do with more of a wine selection, dinner menu and desserts where fantastic, and not too long for wait of meals to be delivered.More

          Staff went out of their way to organise a ground floor room instead of the upstairs one allocated. Amenities in room great. King size bed comfy. Tucked away from highway noise, but close to shopping complexes and beaches. Went away feeling good.
