A wonderful hotel, nice and quiet, pool is small but ideal for cooling down. Rooms are basic but spotless, staff are really friendly, an ideal place to stay, a minute walk across the road to the beach. Would definately recommend and would go back again.

The location is excellent with easy access to the creek and golf course and as a birdwatcher this was ideal. . The room and shower was fine and very clean . Breakfast is good with choice . A bit on the pricey side for the facilities and I would expect a safe in the room for the price plus WI FI is only available at the reception area . Found the cleaner and front desk staff helpful Eat and drink outside
