Met work friends here for lunch. Food was served quickly and was tasty. Beverages are so expensive though $11 for a glass of wine and lemonade is daylight robbery! More like Sydney prices not Newie prices!!! Kind of let's it down when you pay that much for a drink.

Just want to compliment the whole team at Caves Beach Hotel for the hospitality at our recent business conference. The conference room was perfect for our needs with a private dining area in an adjoining room. The quality of catering was superb - grilled scotch fillet, chicken breast, salads and all the finishing touches; and that was just for lunch!... More

We recently attended a wedding here, and decided to stay in one of the townhouses for the weekend. It is an absolutely spectacular setting, and the setup is perfect. The townhouse was fairly new, and housed two couples, each with their own bathroom and wardrobe. There was a full kitchen, laundry and lounge room to complete the accommodation. Being part... More

Could not recommended this more! Great price. I work at a hotel and was surprised with how much came complimentary with the room. I had a couple of issues, fireplace not working and babathtub dirty but that was rectified as soon as I brought it to the attention of housekeeping. Hoping to make this the spot for our anniversaries. It... More

Food, was super... More

I would agree with the general tone of the comments made by cmcinsydney: in particular, we stayed in the same Room 1, and experienced the same lack of privacy. I was annoyed by the attempt of the receptionist to photocopy my driver's licence and credit card, despite the fact I had offered to pay on booking in. I asked about... More

The location is lovely, a short walk across the park from the beach. The beach rooms are also quite large. That is the end of the positives about this place. I was given Room1 which is the one closest to the restaurant / pub. This means that the people sitting on the balcony at the restaurant / pub are literally... More

We stayed in villa 8 with spa. It was amazing. Reading all previous reviews and thinking if we just got that lucky to enjoy everything on Australia day there - room is amazing, everything was working (PS: there is a separate button to turn spa on, and only after you press the regular button for spa on the bath-tub), service...

A good location for the beach. We stayed in one of the beach suits next to the lake and it was quiet, which it said it would be. However the room furnishings were tired with the lamp shade fraying and the door blind coming detached and the bed sheets did not look like they had been changed during our week... More
