Happy Ending
Somehow or other the booking was fouled up, we paid for Dinners but there is no Restaurant. The proprietor went all out and remedied the situation with the issue of vouchers at an eating establishment, really great and accommodating result from a potential calamity. Breakfasts were good, Wi Fi was good as well. Presented with a bottle of wine at departure for the inconvenience. Extremely good outcome from as I said a potential calamity.

Wayne B, au1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
What was great: Cleanliness; location of hotel to beach, cafes and shops; facilities and size of room. The pool was damaged by the storms so we were compensated for it with a dinner voucher at the Aquarium Wharf Restaurant which. What wasn’t great: The bed - was too firm. Was really hard to sleep on.
