We booked through booking.com and there was an option to make requests. I asked for top floor nearest the lagoon if possible. You don't ask, you don't get after all!! Glad I did, as we got upgraded to the 'penthouse'. This was a huge room with beds for 4 people, and a view outside to the lagoon and sea with... More

After being on a boat for 3 days with rough seas and accommodation this place was a Godsend. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, clean facilities with good water pressure, free wifi, well functioning air-con & fan, and lovely location right on the beach behind the lagoon/pool in the centre of town. It felt like an oasis in the desert and... More

Central, downtown location and situated on the lagoon. Standard, clean, quiet room, free wifi, free parking, reasonable rates, laundry facilities, friendly helpful staff. We had an upstairs room with balcony, which is slightly more expensive, they knock down the rates a bit if you stay more than one night.

On checking in .... We thought we were way too old for this place but the staff and in particular Richard re- assured us that we would enjoy it and that we did. We had room 203 and whilst the Room was a tad basic it included all essentials crockery / cutlery and pots if u wanted to cook. Aircon... More

As basic as they come with the feel of every expense spared wherever possible. It isn't very expensive, you get wifi and a bit of free milk and secure parking however that is where the pluses stop. Minuses included- The loudest air conditioning unit I have ever heard A shower which couldn't handle much more than a trickle A visiting... More

Had a great but short stay (1 night) here. The large room had 1 queen bed, and 3 singles. Only a dividing half wall between the queen and the others, so not as much privacy as we would have liked. But the room had everything we needed - wifi, fridge, a hot plate to cook on, serving ware, parking, a... More

Very clean and spacious studio apartments, with a kitchen and balcony overlooking the lagoon (with direct passage there). Quite, but right on the Main Street. The staff were kind and helpful. There is laundry and booking service on site. Very recommend.

Right next to the lagoon pool and park, and in the centre of Airlie Beach town. So for location this place is excellent. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, really made our stay wonderful. The room was ok for a few days stay. Very spacious but could do with just a bit of love which would make it a lot... More

Such a great stay here. So central, great location, quiet and secure. Comfy beds, nice and clean. Nice kitchenette area with communal washer dryer. The staff were so lovely and they made us feel so welcoming and were available for any advice, staff so accommodating for a late arrival and personal access to the beach. Would not hesitate to recommend... More
