I really enjoyed the ambience of this Art Deco styled hotel. It is situated across the road from the beachfront, and is in the heart of the city. It has a very welcoming quiet homely feel to it, which suits me fine. I would recommend it to all my friends as the place to stay

We were very impressed with the fitout and decor of the hotel and room. Vast improvement from when I stayed here with a rugby team 20 years ago :-) All staff were very friendly and helpful, with special mention for reception staff and the waiting staff in the restaurant.

Hello and thank you for your enquiry. The hotel has an open car park for our House Guests. Parking is located approximately 200m from the hotel. There is a loading zone directly in front of the hotel restaurant Emporium Eatery & Bar which is ideal for loading and unloading luggage. There is absolutely no problem wheeling luggage through the restaurant to the hotel reception. In the unlikely event that the loading zone is busy it is also possible to use the bus stop in front of the Hotel - this is a tourist bus stop not a public bus stop and is OK for a quick drop off stop. We charge $11 per night for guest parking and you are welcome to use the space until midday on the day of departure. We highly recommend that you reserve a car park ahead of your stay to avoid any disappointment. There is also metered car parking on the streets which is $1 per hour, free after 6pm, 2pm on Saturdays and all day Sundays. we hope this helps and we look forward to welcoming you to Art Deco Masonic Hotel.
