      A fine older hotel for a good value

      An excellent value in an older hotel that met my top requirements: a good, clean bathroom and a warm, comfortable room/bed after a day of walking about. Miles of proper beaches. Lots of restaurants, etc. I have seen newer carpet than that in the hotel’s “common” areas, if you know what I mean. But I didn’t mind. They cater seem to the older tour-bus gang — a mild bunch, as opposed to a wild bunch, who seemed to be having a great time. Excellent cooked-to-order full breckie included.
