Was Really nice place to stay. Had a lot of rules on the walls and a lot of it was common sense but there's always one I suppose! Facilities and people great only thing I didn't like was utlery deposits separate to the deposit you pay on arrival and having to pay for basic WiFi. But definately nice place to go for the view!


Good location near the beach, though it's a bit of a walk to the train station to get to Perth. The Thai place next door has the best duck curry I've ever had. The WiFi is an astonishing ripoff. Slow, crashes constantly, yet they charge you by the hour... so you're charged even if you can't actually access any websites. The staff will helpfully reset the router... which solves the problem for several minutes at a time. Good scam, that.

If guests are unable to access the WiFi for any reason we are happy to refund till the issue is resolved. Internet access starts from $1.60 per hour.
