Thank you for your review. All windows have hush glass installed to allow a level of soundproofing from our (at times) bustling Marine Parade location. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Reviewed 4 August 2018

Stunning rooms, friendly reception. Be careful not to have the room next to the laundry room. I stayed awake all night listening to the sound of washing machines and dryers. Plenty of space and 10 minutes walk from town.More
