This hotel has obviously just gone through a management change and the new management are incompetent. We had very experienced staff apologising to us for the poor way the hotel and especially the restaurant was run - the staff member referred to it as the jungle. Some examples: At breakfast on two different days they continuely ran out of food... More

This hotel has an amazing location over-looking the bay, it's a great place to stop and have a evening drink on the deck but the accommodation fails to measure up to a purported "4.5 stars" from my experiences and i can't say there's much value for money staying here. The room was a nice size, but for a reasonably new... More

We recently stayed at the Tidal Waters Resort on a package deal including a 3 course dinner for 2 and full breakfast in the resort's "restaurant". Along with a number of other guests, including couples staying on the same package, we were very disappointed by the dire service in the restaurant (more big dining room, lacking any atmosphere). There seems... More

We stayed one night at Tidal Waters in a standard room with a view of the car park, which suited us as we weren't bothered about having a view of the water for such a short stay. The room was quite large and had two queen size beds but no table suitable to sit at to eat meals. We didn't... More

We stayed for 1 night whilst making our way down the east coast. Generally the room and facilites were the standard you'd expect in a large hotel, nothing out of the ordinary. I'd have to say the most disappointing aspects of our short stay related to the atmosphere (subjective view) and the speed of service. We ate in the bar/restaurant... More

I need to preface this review by saying that our rooms were acceptable and the reception staff helpful. However, our stay was tainted by an extremely bad experience in the restaurant at Tidal Waters. It started with a mussel (one of four) in a seafood dish that had been sent out closed, not even a little open but completely shut.... More

We were really looking forward to staying here after a long drive up the east coast and was most disappointed with what we found. It really should not have a 4.5 star rating. It is unfortunate that there is no other establishment in the area that can compete with it and so I think they get away with blue murder... More
