  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

This is a beautiful property situated in the heart of the Gold Coast. The rooms were large and well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We were only Steps to amazing shops and wonderful restaurants. The staff worked very hard to make our stay pleasurable. The only regret I have to mention is that our cell phones did not work in our rooms.
