I have stayed at Sails a few times in the past (more years ago now than I like to remember....or even can!) and was aware of the facilities. However I was very disappointed to find that the sauna - one of the main reasons I booked this place, was not only not working, it was non-existent and not going to... More

Just had 2 night stay at Sails, in a water view king room and it was very enjoyable. Sure the hotel is showing its age but I understand it will soon be renovated so that should transform it into a high quality resort. The location and perspective overlooking the river, marina and town is excellent and even though it was... More

With no reservation we called in and were warmly welcomed and once checked in luggage was out of the car and to the rooms by the helpful staff. Nothing was a problem with very clean rooms that were quiet and a restful atmosphere. A perfect stopover for a night or a week. Walking tracks lead from the resort and lead... More

We stayed for a few nights during school holidays and it worked out great. Upon check in I did ask to be moved as we were located on the bottom floor in a room right by the pool gate and given it was school holidays i guessed it would be a high traffic area early in the morning. The room... More

We just came back from 2 nights at Sails and it was great! the position across from the club/shopping centre was so convenient and also a nice walk along the waters edge to the main town. The outdoor spa was great and when the pump stops you can just reach out, press the button and start it again! ( some... More

Have not been there for several years, so decided to try it again whilst travelling north to Queensland...stayed over one night, excellent service, great room clean and tidy, plus restaurant meal was more like you would get in a top city restaurant...polite professional reception staff. Great views, relaxing and friendly..what more could you want.

I have always enjoyed SAILS and have made a point of overnighting for many years, when driving back from the Gold Coast, for a bit of pleasant scenery and great food on the last night of my trip. I was not aware that RYDGES had taken over, and was surprised that all my previous stays had been wiped. When booking... More

Welcome back Lynley, great to see regular guests returning. Unfortunately the Rydges System was different to the old system and therefore a lot of guest data was lost. I am pleased you enjoyed the new style of rooms. The first stage of the refurbishment is due to get underway in the next couple of weeks. I hope to welcome you... More

My partner and I stayed two nights over the long weekend for a wedding. The service was excellent at the hotel as was the food and service in the attached restaurant. My only complaint would be that the rooms are very dated and not what you would ecpect for the price. That said the hotel does feature Rydges Dream Beds.
