Amazing water views and very friendly staff. Check in was easy and easy to find the room. It's not the kind of place I would normally stay but I don't think there are too many choices here to cater for a large group. (100+) Quite old and creaky. If you are staying on the bottom floor it's quite noisy above... More

Back at St Helens and tried this place. Very clean, quiet and helpful staff. Decor and rooms are dated, but comfortable. More of a place to throw your luggage and travel than a resort. Don't worry though, the friendly staff make up for all of the shortfalls.

Not sure who rates accommodation these days but they need to stop. Certainly not 4 star and certainly not a resort. Who seriously has a double bed these days? We had two. Get rid of them and put in a queen as a minimum. Everything is very dated, shower is tiny (just enough room to turn around), tv is very... More

By all accounts this is a top end resort, if you believe the website. Certainly at $200 a night you would expect a great property. We were disappointed on 4 fronts 1. No wifi in the rooms, I was told the repeater didn't transmit that far. Even had trouble logging on in the foyer 2. Very few staff around, had... More

Walked into reception and was very impressed, beautifully appointed, really looked lovely. However, the reception was unattended, there was a sign saying go to bar for assistance, stood there for a couple of minutes until someone appeared. Checked in and went to our room...since when does an upmarket hotel offer a double bed and a very hard double bed at... More

We spent a couple of nights here, and had very enjoyable experience. Staff were very professional and courteous. Our room had a stunning view of the bay. We dined in the restaurant and had a delicious meal. Very highly recommended by all of us

It's located on the edge of St Helens. The room was spacious for a family of 3. The wifi did not work in our room. The room was a bit tired but clean and tidy. The place had plenty of space to sit back, have a drink and relax; but it'd be stretching it if you are expecting a "resort"... More

I think this little Motel has had some unfair reviews lately. Yes it is older and wifi is only available in the reception but reception is huge with lounges and borders the restaurant. The rooms are clean and tidy with ample fresh linen. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful would recommend. St Helens is a sleepy town not... More

I booked the special accommodation and dinner deal for my wife and I and we had just come from a suite at the Launceston Country Club but we were not disappointed. Check in was easy and friendly. We opted for drinks on the deck while we used the in house laundry to catch up on our washing. Our "special two... More

After deciding to not stay at our first option in the area we had to make a quick decision to find another accommodation option. So we chose Tidal Waves. Glad we did. We had the whole resort to ourselves!! It was a quick one night stopover so we weren't looking for too much other than good clean and friendly surroundings.... More
