Stopped in for lunch recenty, and ordered Burmese Fish Cake Salad with Tamarind Citrus Dressing. The service was very good. The fish cakes were delicious, as was the dressing. However, I received 2 very small fish cakes and a small heap of cabbage coleslaw. I was hungry when I started the meal and I was still hungry when I finished.... More

We stopped here by chance on a business trip. The food was amazingly good and the service could not be faulted. Wood fires in 4 relaxing lounges. When the sun was out the deck area looking over the bay was a great place to escape the rest of the world.

Congratulations to the one and only staff member who spoke and assisted us during our stay. She is a great asset to your business. All the other staff treated us like we were invisible. This person was the house keeper!! She was happy friendly and efficient. We were disappointed that the restaurant wasn't promoted in any way- thus we dined... More

It is interesting that the layout design and rooms are very similar to cradle mountain hotel however the experience is way different The halls and lounges were cold and no free wifi to your room That being said the room was clean and big and the restaraunt was quite good in the evening with the food being plentiful and enjoyable...

Stopped for two nights, room was comfortable but the establishment is very open and lots of unused space, so it was very cold. Fires lit in empty lounge areas, but not lit in the breakfast room??? We did get a good rate, but would not have chosen to stay based on the normal price.

We stayed here for one night in April. The decor is rather tired and the hotel is overpriced for what we got which was a room with the most basic options for making a hot drink and not even the opportunity for cooking a piece of toast. The thing that concerned us the most however, was the thinness of the... More

We stayed for one night in a standard room. While the room was clean and comfortable, it's presentation was dated. The view over the bay was pleasing and the balcony was a bonus. Staff were approachable and helpful. Dinner at the resort was very good but overpriced. The resort is located close to town and the local attractions including the... More

We booked into Tidal waters last night after a long drive advertised as a resort - the place is huge -clean room, long corridors, sitting rooms, big gardens , it looked promising. The reality was a sterile, cold and noisy environment. The walls in the rooms were paper thin, we could hear guests in the rooms next door talking and... More

Build by the same people as Cradle Mountain Hotel, but thats where the similarities end. We were woken by the beautiful sound of birdsong from our balcony. The bed was very comfortable. The staff, very attentive. I can not comment on the breakfast, as we chose to eat out. Dinner was lovely. The wait staff, very freindly and pleasant.
