4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The arrival was very nice and the resort was extremely clean driving through the drive way. It was a lovely area to live and stay but unfortunately I would say that the down fall was the lack of support to make the resort amazing. What I mean is the local shops were all closed and it didn’t make it easy... More

Beautiful room with huge spa bath, the only problem was it was a very tight squeeze with the toilet behind the door, a sliding door is needed. The room was clean and you really felt like you were on holiday. I think they are very short staffed, but we would definitely go back to stay

After reading mixed reviews on Trip Advisor I was a little apprehensive about staying here but on arrival was pleasantly surprised to find clean spacious 1 bedroom apartment which apart from lack of saucers and cups had everything one could want. Opposite the river and walking distance to beach and shops I found it an enjoyable resort to stay at.

This resort was in a good location - the room was dark and had been badly cleaned. When we arrived they had taken my credit card number to support the booking and told me that they would take the cost of the stay upon my departure. As I had Australian dollars I paid my bill including extras in full in... More

I apppreciate that this property is a serviced apartment but the service was non existent. No one to greet us except a machine that didn't work. Got a key from the cleaner. No coffee mugs, teaspoons, or soap in room. They ran out of soap! No tourist or room information available. Stayed two nights and the room had not been... More

Things did not auger well when we tried to book on-line but the booking system did not work and phone would not answer so we booked via wotif. I have never had need to write one of these but when things are poor others really should know. When we tried to confirm our arrival time the phone was diverted to... More

Good location, short walk to shops and supermarket and entertainment. (kayak,jump beds - drive to waterfalls & bush walk areas). The resort has a self check in system, which can be a little tricky and did not work, however staff came after few minutes and we had no issue. The room for 2 adults was clean, self-contained and good size.... More

This made the rooms rather dark.The suite was large with lounge/kitchen area separate bedroom and large bathroom. At 178aud per night I considered this to be good value, as I had pald the same rate the previous day for a very... More

I've stayed in alot of motels across victoria and can honestly say I've slept in better beds in 2 star motels. Room filled with crickets overnight and we were shaking them out of our clothes. Very noisy area aswell with cars and kids constantly driving past our window. The room was fairly clean though. Room service didnt make the bed... More
