Booked this hotel to finish off 2 perfect weeks in oz. and was soooo disappointed. Tired dark rooms, noisey, next to a building site, the crows start at daybreak, and tired to charge us 10 dollars to go into the resturaunt because there was a singer on. No seperate entrance for guests. Breakfest left alot lacking, deffo not continental. Kept up till midnight with forsaid singer , then a screaming child till 2am. Avoid at all costs if you want a decent nights sleep.

The manager went out of his way to accommodate our request for an early breakfast as we had a medical appointment to get to., We appreciated his kindness. Good place to stay to enjoy the beautiful beach . Joan Johansson Wagin WA

I stayed here in December on a business trip to Perth. I would not stay at this hotel on a business trip. It is a bit tired and does need an upgrade. Ironing arrangements very poor. Have to get iron and small board from reception. I had difficulties using the small board and it took me a lot longer to iron using it. Very time wasting.

I was lucky to get a room on an upper floor. However, my colleague got a room on the ground floor right by the bar. This was very noisy and uncomfortable for her.

They also want a $100 deposit. I can't understand why. There is no mini bar. I found they debited my credit card twice and had to contact them from overseas to get this rectified.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room near the noisy bar on the ground floor.

Very basic old 70's hotel in a top location, close to shops, beach, pub and easy transport. I don't recommend it for families or honeymoon...but it is a good overnight stay on a tight budget. Clean, staff is friendly, have parking.

Staff very friendly and service good, however the hotel looks like it needs considerable work to bring it up to standard. The bathroom was very average, only one place to hang a towel, the other on a drying line stretched across the room. Very basic, the hotel's main asset is its location, in my opinion priced a little high for what you get.

We chose this Hotel as is close to daughters residence. My initial booking over the phone had disappeared but the Admin lady was very apologetic, and after double checking everything we were offered the refurbished Spa Suite at the same price.
The room was very nice, coffee making facilities, well appointed kitchenette, good sized fridge (not a bar fridge), comfortable chairs, king sized bed, A/C, spa bath, new shower, and a table/chairs on the small balcony.
No ocean views, but that was OK.
Cars were locked behind a gate between 12pm and 6am but can organise to get vehicles out if required.
Great location - 2 streets from the Esplanade, beach and Wild Fig Cafe (great for breakfast).
Not 5 star but definitely suitable for us.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the Indi Bar - bands playing Fri/Sat night but was finished by midnight - no traffic...

This hotel is relatively cheap, the staff are friendly and helpful and it is close to the beach. It needs an upgrade of its facilities and repairs that have been done are obvious. Foxtel did not work and the double bed was up against a wall allowing access from one side only. I have only seen this in London. The room had a double and a single bed in it, but was really only suitable for a double bed. Car park was locked between 12.00 am and 6.00 am.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room
