The room was good and clean. The bed was a little harder than I like but it wasn’t the end all, be all. We were a group of 4 and were given extra towels immediately upon our arrival. Our stay overall Very good. No complaints here!

The property was in an excellent location. Beautiful. The hotel itself was very dated and in desperate need of updating. The restaurant and pub were closed which was irritating. A little pricey for an old outdated hotel.

Loved the location, nice to go for a walk along the water with lots of lovely benches with tables. Only criticism is no coffee maker. Other hotels along the sunshine coast provided K Cup coffee maker - we obtained supplies from front desk. This is my only negative comment. The staff both from phone call to advise of delay gentleman most kind, ladies at both check in and check out both very helpful. Gave us great suggestions from locals perspective. Would stay again. Just hope they have a coffee machine in future. Also would book 2 nights in advance as very difficult to obtain accommodation we had to leave the sunshine coast earlier than we wanted.
