        Courtious staff. Good location

        Needs a paint, rooms a bit tierd

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        The service and cleanliness is good

        Unfortunately the close proximity of the roadway and roundabout make it too noisy. The beds are probably the hardest and most uncomfortable in Airlie Beach. (at least the beds in rm 21 are, we didn't get to try any others)

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Clean, friendly staff

        Needs a comfy chair to sit and wacth telly, maybe a tv in bedroom

        5.0

        the staff where very friendly and the restraunt meals was great. little slow in service but worth it. Unit had everything that was needed for our stay by one thing.

        It was a self containted unit but did not have a lounge or seats to sit in had two single beds instead which for older peeple is not a comfy way to sit.

        The new resturant, the food was absolutely amazing worth the value for money =).

        Good value for money. Comfortable rooms. Very friendly & helpful staff. Beautiful pool. Central location. Highly recommended for a budget stay in Airlie Beach.

      • Couple
        10.0

        It was very close to everything, the owners/managers were very helpful, accomodating and all that you would want to find at a Hotel. I enjoyed the fact that Breakfast, lunch and dinner was available to us if we decided to stay at the Hotel.

        The only thing that I found initially quite a bit dissapointing is that the rooms looked nothing at all like what the net had shown me which actually bugged me quite a bit.

        The room were really clean and pretty nice for how cheap they were

        So...we booked two rooms. One of which my parents stayed in. When we returned from a meal in town, all the water was gone from the toilet and the smell was absolutley disgusting. Reception had closed so my dad just opened all the windows, the door, put the fan on and ran all the water and flushed the toilet lots to clear it.There was clearly a drainage problem... The next morning we told the guy at reception and it was very clear that he didnt care. And by the expression on his face it sounded like it was something that happened all the time. He didnt even apologise. I was in the room next door though and it was perfect!

      • Couple
        10.0

        Staff was great and very helpful with booking excursions. The location in Airlie Beach was not bad. It was close to all the attractions, without being too close to be noisy.

        It is a expensive for what it is, but that seems to be the trend in Australia. Also the breakfast was too expensive.

      • Older travelers

        Room to park the boat on the same block as the hotel. Easy walk into town and to the Jubilee Tavern.

        No facilities to clean room yourself ie no broom, dishwashing facilities in the room and there was no servicing of the rooms. The one time they did service the rooms on our request they changed a couple of towels only - did not sweep floor. We would have been happy to do this ourselves should the equipment have been available in the room. Management staff did not seem to have a good grasp and did not give confidence in their ability in running of the hotel. No BBQ facility. None of the service or facilities at the hotel would encourage me book there again.

        I liked the staff best of all, very very friendly and informative...Lovely people.

        Very annoyed that we were woken up by Other guests using the Spa outside our room at 5.30am!!.Left message on voice mail as no staff on at that hour of the morning

      • Couple

        it's walking distance from main street of airlie

        the room what not what we expected nor the resort.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The service was the best I've received anywhere, especially the restaurant staff. The room was great and the entire hotel was well maintained, and the pool and spa were very nice as well. The food in the restaurant was amazing, well priced and the staff put in extra effort to make our dining and hotel experience the best we've had, we will definately return.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The quietness about it all, and to be able to walk outside your room and step into the pool was great!
