Small corporate style hotel near the beach but no beach views. Hotel beach views have been built out by neighbouring apartment buildings.

Sayed here for the second time in this Hotel. Great Position near the beach with great Walking opportunities. Rooms are large however the decore is very stark and basic.

Stayed here for an overnight stopover on my way to Melbourne. Close to the waters edge with a view and close enough to the city centre. Room Service was great and very prompt. Room was comfortable and clean. Customer Service and Reception was excellent and would definitely consider staying here again.
