"A bit out of town but lovely location by the Marina. Shuttle services available into town but latest is 4pm, would be better if they run later into the evening."

17 March 2011 Jodie would recommend this property

Liked: Its in a pretty area, set in a quay. Free games and dvd's to watch. Pretty relaxed atmosphere as there wasn't really a curfew set for the common room. Toilets cleaned everyday as was the kitchen. All open plan and spacious.

Disliked: The location. Approx 40minute walk to the town. Free courtesy bus but only goes to and from the town 5 times which isnt that frequent considering it fills up easily and then have to wait for next 1 which can be 3hours later. You could get the public bus down but that costs $4.80 each way. No aircon in rooms and can get quite hot.

Liked: The property was clean and secure.

Disliked: The bathrooms were cleaned daily, however it took them two hours to clean them at peak hours. We stayed at Christmas, however you would not have guessed it was Christmas. There was no Christmas atmosphere nor any activities only a over priced sausage meal for $8. Staff also told us all the restaurants would be closed on Christmas day, however a majority of shops and restaurants were opened.
