I enjoyed my stay here, reasonable price, clean rooms, lovely view over pool and port. Its downfalls were my WiFi didn't work, no fresh change of towels/ linen and you have to dispose of all your rubbish leaving or you will be charged a fee which I have never seen before! However, I would return here,it was a perfect location... More

I am a little biased and an owner of a second floor apartment. Management has changed here and in the last 12 months the place has certainly improved. It is only 400 metres walk from the shops, with the local bus which passes every half an hour stops right out the front. Many accommodation places in Airlie require a shuttle... More

I stayed for one week with my 8 yr old daughter in a poolside one bedroom apartment. The room was ok but definitely needs some updating. The room reminded me of a cabin. My fridge broke down and I lost all my food when I had just done a large shop for the stay this was extremely inconvenient but I... More

We stayed 2 nights and were totally happy with it, it is a basic place to stay, affordable and clean, only short walk to Main Street and the harbour only across the road. The pool looks nice and there is a spa there next to that is a sun deck at the front not sure why it is called a... More

The location of this place is a huge plus, lovely views and a short walk into the Main Street. Room was clean and well equipped. The pool is also lovely. The clothes washing machines available near reception were also really useful for an extended stay. Very affordable, and over our expectations for the price.

Offered us and brought in room a Nespresso coffee machine and a frofer. Gave us details for the free WiFi, excellent. Room was clean,... More

There were a few things which are worth mentioning. Pros; - the room was air conditioned and the shower pressure was amazing - the pool was clean - it was a quite area... More

TL;DR: Don't stay here. No working WiFi, stolen luggage, and horrible service. Deceptive listing. The hotel is listed as a 4-star "spa" hotel, but it is in reality anything but. The one positive of the entire stay is the location, which is a short walk to the main Airlie strip, and up the road from the new harbour. The hotel... More

Bit deceptive from the photos. Standard, well equipped apartment room. Few things that I didn't enjoy, the outdoor spa in the front of the hotel wasn't working, our blinds in our bedroom were broken and as a result we had no privacy as they couldn't be lowered, one of the major pipes on the way to our room was leaking...
