Perfectly located to local shops and cafes. The local food is very reasonable albeit at Melbourne & Sydney prices. The resort itself is well appointed with as far as we could tell from our own apartment (12). Spacious comfortable and tastefully decorated. We had a full and comfortable King size bed, which was good because our kids spend quite a... More

It was tastefully decorated, clean, spacious with great little extras like board games, dvd's, a full kitchen, the bathrooms were beautiful and clean. A great king size bed in the... More

Due to a cancellation we luckily secured a booking during peak season. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment overlooking the pool – very spacious and comfortable. The apartment contained all facilities you need. I liked the fact that the property was a little way away from the gridlock at Hastings Street. As the apartment was located towards the back... More

Deserves its no1 ranking. Great management, spotless complex and right on the river. We stayed in the small studio, which you can book by phone for around $105/night. Bargain. No balcony, but we took our lunch and breakfast out to the picnic tables by the river. Gorgeous. Restaurants close by. Ample parking. Great pool. Not overrun with kids in early... More

Thanks to resort managers, Kathie & Malcolm, and the very generous size of their 3 bedroom apartments, I was able to have my birthday lunch for 20 people in one of the resort's wonderful apartments overlooking the river. It was the perfect venue: spacious with plenty of room for everyone, central location, plenty of parking, very good air-conditioning, views over... More

The apartments are very spacious, well equipped kitchen, incredible BBQ facilities that are always clean, excellent pool/ gym/ sauna and beautiful gardens that are well maintained. Cathy and Malcolm were very approachable and very helpful- this was our first holiday... More

Well here we were again. We love this resort. It's perfect for families, or friends. Not a romantic resort though. I wouldn't recommend for couples. Overall the resort is kept in excellent condition and Kathie and Malcolm make sure it is kept that way. They are the perfect hosts. Happy to help with everything. This was our 2nd time back,...

The rooms are excellent, location could not be better for us - right in the middle of some great restaurants along Gympie Tce, and the riverfront is wonderful for a walk or paddle in the water for the kids as a great alternative to the beach. The pool is heated and perfect, though it can seem too small an area... More
