4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently stayed 3 nights here as part of a package through Luxury Escapes. It included continental breakfast daily and a voucher towards dinner. The 2 bedroom apartment overlooked the North Arm and was very spacious. Ensuites to both bedrooms and plenty of room in the lounge and kitchen area. I found the beds a bit too hard for me... More

We booked a resort room, but when we got there, although the room was very nice with a great big shower, I felt it was too small and it also only had windows and no balcony. I asked for a room with a balcony and was taken to see a one bedroom apartment WITH a balcony which was beautiful and... More

Unfortunately, my (our) trip here was spoilt due to the fact that they had some work done which resulted in power suspension. Management failed to notify myself and provide an other option of arrival days or another hotel to choose from. Instead, they opted for complaint letter and to patch things up give me a discount on my return trip.... More

We came across this hotel quite by chance from South Africa, booked on line, and were not disappointed on our arrival. This hotel was very fully booked when obviously other hotels and motels were not which speaks for itself. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was modern, clean, well equipped, and slightly spartan! Could not fault it at all... More

Chose this for our anniversary and went with a 3-day Cudo Luxury Indulgence voucher. Good value but best move was to accept a $30 per night upgrade to an apartment. Good view to both river waterways. Long walk to town but at least out of main drag. Enjoyed our massage and good meals there, plus the warm spa and indoor... More

Spent 2 nights on a mid-week Deals voucher which clearly I had not read sufficiently to realise that the room would not be serviced! Well the towels were pretty miniscule in the first place and nothing else was provided for the spa/pool so it was pretty obvious that extras would be needed, to be honest they did eventually turn up...

Just had 6 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. It was great EXCEPT: 1/ the noise of adjoining units is too loud. In fact it was frustrating because it is not quite loud enough to understand the conversations. 2/ to make matters worse they started maintenance on the floor of the unit above -- tap, tap, tap, pause, tap, tap,...

We took a mid-winter break here, just for three days, in a one-bedroom apartment. The general outlook was nice, front overlooking the water across the road, the back looking over the North Arm. Unfortunately the location is just a little too far from town to comfortably walk - the walk being almost totally a strip of motels and apartments. The... More

Only complaint is the WIFI not being available at all times. Informed by receptionist it is subject to weather conditions and amount of users. All amenities provided stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Indoor pool and spa fantastic. Would definitely recommend to our friends and family to stay. Perfect winter weekend away throughly enjoyed my birthday. Dinner at the Floating... More
