Really clean and friendly hotel right on the waterfront . I think we paid a little extra to have ocean view room but it was worth it. Very friendly manager. Seemed quiet and had good facilities in the room. Tea & coffee, fridge , hot plate & microwave . Virtually next door to some good cafés and supermarket around the... More

To get a self contained apartment for one night for $120 and it be on the foreshore as well, was too good to pass up. We arrived after reception was closed and there was a phone at the door to get the code for the external key safe where our welcome letter and key were in an envelope with our... More

We had a nice apartment at the front of the complex overlooking the beach, a bit tired ,and the extra bed for our son very saggy, but the view made up for it. Excellent secure parking, close to shops and restaurants and over the road from the beach. Nice looking pool too. But the public areas (lifts and corridors) very... More

Myself and a colleague arrived at this motel at 6.45 pm to find you have to ring a booking line to retrieve your key from a safe after hours! After several tense minutes while he searched for both our bookings on the system we were able to get in. So I would recommend not chancing this as he also told... More

For the cost this place offers poor value for money. Unfortunately I booked this place based on what I saw/read online. What you don't see is the staircase you have to climb to get to the reception level - not much fun when you're lugging a 24Kg suitcase! And that's just the start. They advertise that they have wifi. But... More

I stayed overnight here recently for a Cowboys game. This hotel was fabulous! Very good location and the rooms were roomy and very clean, comfy bed and I had a great view of the ocean / esplanade. The kitchenette was a bonus too even though I didn't use it. Great value for money. The reception lady was really friendly and... More

I loved the location, having an ocean view room on the top floor and being on the waterfront. I felt welcomed, and the staff were all really friendly and helpful. The car parking was ideal and pool/BBQ area is well kept and very inviting! The room was clean and comfortable, and I felt as a housekeeper myself, the standard was... More

kept waking up with sore hips from the bed. No hot water at 4.30am when I woke to shower. While standing waiting for hot water to come on noticed someone else's hair on the soap dispensers in the shower. (yuk!) Called the operator and she advised they had been having problems with the hot water and she would get some... More

Carpet is discusting and there is no reason for it. Over priced due to location. The TV is the smallest ive seen this century. Shower fittings are overdue for upgrade. Owners of these places dont put anything back and wonder why they lose guests.

We have stayed at Waters Edge several times; position is excellent, rooms comfortable and the reception is usually (depending on who is working) welcoming and helpful. The better rooms overlook the strand or the swimming pool. There is a premium for rooms overlooking the strand which, frankly, is too much, rooms on the swimming pool side of the buidling are...
