Location, Location!!

I had read the differing reviews on this hotel, but overall I found it difficult to fault. It has one big thing going for it and that is it's location. Right across the road from the beach with spectacular views it is well worth opting for a beachfront room. I suppose for the price paid it was never going to be 5 star luxury but if you are on a budget then this place would be difficult to beat. It provided good value for money. If I had a criticism it would be on arriving late (after 9 pm) reception was closed and it entail gaining access to the hotel via a intercom arrangement which did prove to be a little troublesome and took 3 attempts to gain entry. Then on entering the hotel there was no one around to greet me and the whole thing was somewhat confusing. I had to use the intercom again to find out the procedure for obtaining my keys to the room which were secured in a safe which the access code was given to me. All very unusual and not very welcoming. It was "Schoolies" week and the whole resort was madness but generally the hotel which had endured an invasion of revelling youngsters only a few nights previously showed no adverse signs!! I was told however by a fellow guest that the hotel had been very noisy during this time and this can be borne out by the general noise on the streets right through the night. So in this respect a bit of a drawback when it comes to being so close to the main beachfront.

2 Nächte Stop

Nach schnellem und problemlosem einchecken sowie parken des KFZ in der zum Haus gehörigen Tiefgarage per Aufzug direkt zum Zimmer, welches überraschend groß war und aus einem Wohn / Schlafbereich sowie durch eine Schiebetür abgetrenntem Bad / Toilettenbereich bestand. Leider konnte die schöne Aussicht des sehr gut gelegenen Hotels durch schon länger nicht mehr gereinigte Fenster nicht ganz genossen werden. Der zweite Kritikpunkt waren alte, abgenutzte Schränke die dringend ausgetauscht werden sollten. Trotzdem würde ich das Hotel für einen Kurzbesuch wieder buchen.
