    We had a great stay here. We ended up coming back after our dive boat tour. The location was convenient. We could walk anywhere we needed. They have onsite parking but we weren’t able to use it as our van was quite tall with our roof rack and I believe the entry was 2.2 metres tall. They do have street parking outside which is free in the evenings so we didn’t end up parking far away.

    Kitchen area clean, however some stove tops did not work, but lots of room to store food. Room was nice and clean, lockers provided for everyone. There was a problem with the water so the female bathrooms were only on the bottom floor so a bit annoying having to walk down stairs during the night or for a shower as I stayed on the 1st floor. Staff all very friendly.
