My husband and I have stayed many times at the Oceanside. We just love it. Always clean, and always made so welcome. Lovely hot spa and lap pool. As recent as Friday night we had the pleasure of staying again. Top marks!! Location is perfect.

We stayed here for our Christmas work Do, booked 6 rooms by our corporate head office. Reception was extremely rude upon check in, bathrooms are absolutely filthy and seriously need to be sorted out! Your $250 bond has been removed from personal accounts + the corporate credit card, this should be returned straight away but still pending, not good enough. Your location is great but that's about it.
