        We only had a quick sleep & shower before moving on so didn't really get a chance to really experience your facility.

        Only there as an overnight stop between flights. Not much I can say.

        Rate included cooked breakfast! Good buffet. Everyone enjoyed that and the room rate wasn't too expensive to compensate for free breakfast.

        Perhaps just the parking - it could do with a parking area closer to units or right by the unit for family with small children and local guests with vehicle.

        Meals were excellent. Nice pools.

        Very wet and as drainage is bad you get your feet very wet. Very larger property with long walks to many of the rooms.

        The range of facilities makes life easier when you are living out of a suitcase and travelling.

        The very relaxed atmosphere was a change for New Year's Eve.

        Wasn't totally impressed with the Buffet at the Restaurant on New Year's Eve. The Al-a-carte was fine - didn't think the buffet was worth paying the extra for.

        The resort had a couple of problems with their computers, but they were very quick to apologise for the situation and offer us a free bottle of bubbly!

        Huge complex, lots of pools.

        May have been an elegant hotel 20 years ago, but today it's showing it's age.

      • Family with children

        The swimming pools were wonderful

        Not children friendly when is comes to children for food - only fish n chips available for a 3yr old and 16 month old. No breakfast faclities available for families on a budget - kiosk only opened at 11am so no breakfast for children

        Very well set out Resort, Very relaxing atmosphere. Great for families, children or couples.

        Can't think of anything.

      • Older travelers

        The hotel is very tired - the rooms are basic but clean. The resort is very noisy - many guests seem to have no regard for those who might be asleep beyond 6am! Or indeed asleep before 1am! Breakfast was good. Staff were polite but did not go out of way to assist or suggest anything. The price was excellent though - but the hotel is a long way from town so a car is a must unless you want to pay for the bus.

        Very comfortable room, clean. The pool and garden area was very nice with the poolside bar. We loved the continental breakfast with so many choices, fresh fruit, croissants, toast, cereal, congee, etc. Great value for the cost of the room.

        Not much. Most of the staff were really great .

        I didn't like the fact that there was a public walkway people directly outside my was very noisy. I didn't have any private space to sit eg. Courtyard. I noticed that you actually have the space to create small private areas outside each of the rooms near where I stayed ,room 96. I didn't like having to walk right round through the lobby to get to the restaurant. One member of the dining staff was unfriendly and unwelcoming, he really does need to smile! I was told i could only sit at certain tables to have my cup of coffee.The dining room finishes breakfast at 10.30 am and the pool side cafe doesn't open 'til 11am ? Good budget hotel for young families-they seemed to be having a good time! Sorry, but I would be reluctant to stay there again.

        A nice spread out site with pools, games facilities and restaurant

        The hotel's approach to taking payment meant that everything cost me more than anywhere else that we visited in Australia - They processed all payments as a credit card therefore incurring a service charge even when I was using a debit/savings card.
