Booked this "resort" online. A family room had to park on the street as there is only a few car park, despite it bring a "free" inclusion. When we opened the door and wondered through it took my mother back to the 70's. As it is winter we ran around closing all the windows as it was extremely cold. Only... More

Bombora should not be called a 'resort'... Rooms are small and very outdated. Basin for washing your hands also doubles as a kitchen sink? We were provided with 1 key for the duration of our stay, and when accidentaly locked the keys inside our room at midday on Sunday afternoon we were charged an $80 fee to be let back... More

When booking online I do take into account some of the reviews.. Not all the time I see justification in many negitive reviews. In this case I did. It is such a shame this Resort as it is called. is so outdated. It has the best view overlooking a park and is in walking distance from the town. It is... More

It would be wishful thinking that there were 5 star facilities for the price, but admit to be just a mite surprised when first viewing the assigned room. I've stayed at 5 star places and a one star place near the Sahara Desert- and lots in between - so I'm continually comparing places. As travellers, we contend with a mixed... More

**CONSIDER ALL OTHER BOOKING OPTIONS** If the option existed to give ZERO stars, it would be marked accordingly. Having successfully booked in January 2014 for a five-night stay in April 2014, my wife and I arrived at Bombora Resort after a late-night flight from Sydney to be greeted with a closed reception area shortly after 8:00p.m on Tuesday April 22nd...

Had a week over and the Bombora provided a decent cheap stay. Probably the only things that were not so good was the shower, which was very tired looking and the bed was a bit rigid where it joins in the middle. If you get the basic rate, room keeping is limited so you have to expect that. Apart from... More

I stayed at the Bombora Resort for two nights in January 2013 and had a room on the same level as Reception, away from the street. The rate was inexpensive, the room was reasonably comfortable (if small) and the location is great with a wonderful big park right next door, and the main shopping centre and the beach only 10...

I'm glad we only stayed one weekend. Even though the parklands are nice and right there, the room was nothing we would expect for over $100 a night. The sink was kitchen and bathroom sink in one and there was no hair dryer. We didn't feel comfortable taking off our shoes, it was just not clean enough. There was NO... More

Thankfully we only had to stay here for the one night. Perhaps we were just unlucky, as it was at the tail-end of the school holidays and the start of the Australia Day Weekend and we seemed to have got a very over-priced and somewhat unclean room. We checked in shortly before 5pm - reception closes at 5pm! By the... More
