It is a nice location, about 5 mins walk to the beach / surf club. It has 2 entrances, 1 off Brisbane rd, the other off River Esp. The Brisbane Rd entrance takes you to a service station about 100m where I bought ice. Maccas & other shops aren't far across the rd. Rooms a nice, bathroom small but it's all been refurbed and was clean. Aircon worked well. It's quiet except for the morning when everyone is leaving as the carparking is right outside the door. Staff are friendly & helpful. There is a shared kitchen where you can get utensils, wine glasses etc. One of the fridges was smelly so I wouldn't recommend using it. And the bar fridge in the room wasn't that cold, so you may want to take an esky with ice for drinks etc. Nice spot overall and a good value. Staff can be a bit hard to get on the phone so I would recommend you ring their mobile phone.
