The outside of the resort was lovely so when we entered our room we expected the same but were instead disappointed. On entry the thicknesses of the dust was overpowering and the air was musty. The mattress was so bad that we sank in the middle. The rooms were neat & tidy but lacked cleanliness and fresh air. The receptionist... More

We were a group of ladies having a weekend away with use of conference facilities. From the moment I spoke to Debbie at reception she was accommodating to our requests. On meeting her i was impressed with her helpfulness and she is a lovely person to deal with. The management (particularly Lin) went above and beyond our expectations. We were... More

My husband and I stayed for a romantic weekend away. We got the king spa room but unfortunately the spa wasn't working properly. The room was very clean and big but the furniture is looking a bit dated. It is quite central and only a short drive to a lot of different spots on the central coast. We had a... More

Stayed 2 nights for social visit in the area. Relaxing location. Carol on Reception was very informative and offered helpful suggestions for places to go for tea. Very pleasant ground floor (305) room. Bit dated with shower curtain, but comfortable bed and pillows. Pool and grounds well kept. We used 2 courtesy buses during our stay, and were comfortable in...

Always a joy to stay at this resort motel. Would suggest the best eating is at a small unique restaurant operated by the most endeeing young couple I've met in many moons. They are located on the main drag at long Jetty. The green tangerine...don't miss it! You'll be amazed! Long Jetty is the best kept secret on the central... More

The rooms was as advertised. Large. The king bed didn't have any stoppers on the feet so it moved a bit, even when you just sat on it. They provided a microwave toaster and fridge but no utensils or crockery. The fridge struggled to make ice in a 24 hour period. Although if you asked for crockery they did hand... More

This one was a raw surprise. Our room was a little dated, but What it lacked in modern decor it made up for with great, friendly staff and a relaxing environ. The kids enjoyed the games room and the pool and we enjoyed the tropical feel of the pool surrounds. Grab some food from "Forries", down the road for lunch... More

The bed was comfortable and the price was fair We really enjoyed an uphill walk to the beach, a good exercise indeed. At 0830 am we were woken up by a young man trimming... More

When we first came in the room, there was a horrible smell-combination of toilet and chlorine everywhere! I guess they had mopped with a very dirty water! The mattress was very soft and uncomfortable! The wifi was worst than a 3d world's one. I had to call the reception to tell them to change our used towels and in 5... More

Dear Guest, We are very disappointed with your untrue and discouraging review! Our professional Housekeeping team went the extra mile to look after your family. You were requesting new towels before the housekeeping staff had a chance to come around to service your room. It was never a problem to provide them to you though. Certainly never ever would we...

The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was basic and could use a makeover. There were a couple of small electrical problems that we reported to management. Local restaurants were not suitable/available during our stay so we had a 15 minute drive to Terrigal to get takeaway. Breakfast was not offered although I understand a... More
