Easter weekend getaway

STAFF HERE WERE EXCELLENT -very helpful. Great view and very relaxing. Loved having a spa in the bathroom. Had some neighbours that played their music a wee bit loud - But we liked their choice so it was ok! They must have had a complaint as the music was toned right down within the hour! Rooms are SMALL in size and if we were staying longer I would have wanted more room to move around in. Two beds put together - but they were comfortable. Thanks for a good relaxing time - loved seeing all the ships go by. It was fairly quite even though we were just across froom the park. The Wood fired pizza place and the hotel bistro were good for meals.Lifts are very hot inside. Pool was great smaller -but not too busy. Would prefer to have a MUSIC channel- but apart from that all good. We booked in for another night as we were enjoying the stay so much.

Perfect location

Great family holiday. Our apartment comfortably accommodated our family of 6. Excellent location, beautiful views to the ocean, just across the road from Kings Beach. Heated pool and spa - a bonus.

Weekend away

Overall, a pleasant stay. Our room was much smaller than expected (it had a kitchenette, but no room for a small table). Staff were attentive and very helpful - a huge plus. Location was stunning. Definitely a place to come back to.

Two great little restaurants right next to the hotel - one a seafood, the other an Italian restaurant. Also, with a Surf Club just across the road - no shortage of value for money places to dine nearby.

Lacking the full experience real review

So my boyfriend and I went and stayed in the one bedroom apartment here and when we got there we were sad to find out we were just above pool level and that the pictures didn't show how small the space was. There was no double vanity, the room isn't very big and well you have to clean up after yourself as they won't do any cleanliness and won't change your linen or towels unless your staying longer than 7 days. I found that it was lacking that 4.5 star hotel experience. I felt it was a classy backpackers instead of maybe a hotel. Don't get me wrong I loved having a spa bath and all facilities that you want for apartment living stay I was just a bit shocked and taken back by what was provided. If you want a bigger room you have to have the walk in shower but really a shower over a spa...I prefer my own spa. The place looked tidy and was fairly clean. There was no doona to keep you warm at night but a blanket between the sheets and the doona cover. I must admit it was quite lovely and after I got over disappointments it was very beautiful though be warned you can hear through walls and you can hear everything happening outside including bats living close by. I mean the experience is totally up to you but if your looking for just a little place that may let you down in a few areas but build in others this would be the place.

Just at the bottom of your hotel you have a few nice little restuarants other than that go for a bit of a drive to the town and you can go to coles and get everything you need to make up your own
