We booked into this hotel quite last minute, we were very happy, nice room, friendly staff. Restaurant very nice. We parked outside the hotel, lot of undesirables outside, but nothing to the hotel which we were very happy with and would return.

Yes... it is approximately 1.5kms from the centre, safest route is along the upper marine parade during the day light hours or a scenic walk along the Beachfront, I would recommend a taxi after dark,
