The 4 1/2 star rating must have been self appointed. A more accurate description of this property also starts with an F, but ends with a D. From the filthy cups to the feisty toilet, to the overall funky smell. Made me wonder if the sheets belonged to previous guests.

Would have to be the worst place I have ever stayed in bar none. The room appeared as though it had not been cleaned after the previous guests. The cups had coffee ring stains and tea stains. The bed appeared as if it had not been changed,and just made up. The whole place had a bad smell.

We stayed here for 2 nights, could have stayed longer. The views are lovely, the living room is massive, the facilities are perfect. Very comfortable for a family of 5 to stay there for a week. The main part of town is quiet at night so not many eating choices. Right across the road from the apartments is a kids... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom spa apartment on our way to surfers. This apartment was HUGE. I have been in smaller houses. Everything was exceptionally clean and I especially liked the separation of the kids room to ours. We were on the first floor with an expansive view with massive balcony over the Richmond River. The staff... More

We stayed two nights , the first in a two bedroom river front apartment the other in a motel style room due to the fact that the two bedroom was fully booked. The Motel style room was adequate and fully appointed for that style of accommodation. The Two bedroom however was more than we expected, the living area was huge... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in a one bedroom apartment with river glimpses from the large and very private balcony. After we checked in we found a couple of minor things that needed seeing to and they were fixed immediately. Well done. Our apartment was spacious, clean and a pleasure to stay in. I could live...
