The room photos on the website are deceptive, there is no fitness facility (even though their website says there is and this is one reason I chose the place!) and the room was very noisy (right next to the highway, could hear the TV next door and people walking around outside). It is a shame because the bed was very... More

We booked on line for double room and saw the picture of the room when it was confirmed. When we arrived at around 7pm, drove from QLD we were given a family room behind the pool area. Room had 4 open spaces with 4 single beds in one room, queen bed in another room, another bed standing in a corner... More

Stayed one night and booked through a website. Although on the highway noise was not excessive. Rooms had been refurbished, very clean and spacious. Bed bit too firm! Staff pleasant and breakfast buffet average but not overpriced. Free wi fi and quite fast.

My parents stayed at this hotel on the way through from Brisbane to Sydney. They really appreciated the kind staff and comfortable bed. The light switch was out of my mums reach (it's above doorway height?) but that was the only downside. They liked it so much they asked me to book them back in there on the way home.... More

I needed a stop over on route from Toowoomba to Sydney and selected this hotel. Very reasonable. Clean, convenient and worth it to have a restaurant on site. Management welcoming and friendly. Dinner in restaurant and service were both good.

Stayed one night here, went with my sister-in-law for work . Very nice accommodation, clean and relatively easy to find as on the main highway. The restaurant, was quite good ,nice atmosphere as you look out at a rain forest. Staff were polite and helpful.

Thank you for your review. Although we have ample parking for small vehicles right up to coaches and trucks due to the layout of the property it's unfortunate that not everybody can park directly in front of their room. Parking is always easy access and only a short walk to your room. On any occasion when assistance is required for... More

This resort is located on the outskirts and is just off the highway. I thought there would be a lot of traffic noise but as the rooms are set back from the road that was certainly not an issue. The room was very clean and spacious and has been well maintained since being renovated a couple of years ago. There... More

Glad you guys enjoyed your stay with us. It was unfortunate that you didn't get to dine at the Treehouse Restaurant due to the restaurant being closed on Sundays. It is great that you had a nice night out down at the marina which is only a short drive from our motel. We look forward to seeing you again and... More

Beautiful place that is hidden, I’ve stayed here many times, only for one night usually. The place is always clean, the beds are really comfy and the rooms up to standards and the plus side it's only $90! There is free fast wifi! One of the rooms that we stayed in the shower door wouldn’t close properly.. but other than... More
