Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Huge rooms with 2 king size beds & a balcony. Located about a 10 minute walk from the sea front with restaurants & bars but we ate in the hotel restaurant couldn't be bothered to go out & well the steak & chips was delicious & not expensive. They do have happy hour but you only get $1 off each drink. Not a very big pool but we don't swim so didn't bother us.

Review:   A nice, clean, comfortable room for the night. Basic kitchen amenities - kettle and microwave and some cups, plates ans utensils. They allowed us to charge our electric cars overnight for no extra charge. They had some 16amp blue caravan power points as well as some 10amp 3112 (normal household) power points. The site itself is visually attractive and very near the beach and restaurants.
