I stayed at the 5 knots 3 bedroom apartment with 5 girlfriends for 3 nights. The location is wonderful and it was great value. The decor and cleanliness of the apartment is amazing. Both floors has balconies overlooking the water, we saw seals, dolphins, pelicans and swans daily. Walking distance to local pub, shops n restaurants. Our main gripe was... More

We had a two days at 5 knots during May. We loved the fact they the text us the entry code. Much better than having to worry about keys. We stayed in a one bedroom unit that had a generous spa, huge comfy bed and a wonderful waterview balcony where we could watch the awesome sunsets while cooking dinner. The... More

Firstly, I should say that this is a great property. It is really well kitted out, in a great position and very clean. Unfortunately it is seriously let down by really dodgy business practices. My partner and our 8 week old son decided we needed a break from the city and chose a couple of days to head to Metung.... More

We had a horrible experience, there is no on site reception and for a so called 5 star hotel its just unacceptable. It took us over an hour to get through to the actual local 5 Knots number, each time I rang the lady couldn't hear me and hung up on me twice. My husband called back and got through... More

Great location. Apartment 1 was well designed but had no view - if fact it was slightly below the road. The appliances were quality and it was immaculately clean. Just two minutes amble from the bakery and pub - what a great place to escape the world. Also - they have a great system where they text you the room... More

Nothing but the best in this 3 bedroom apartment. The views, the amenities, the ambiance, all first rate. Would recommend for a break away with friends or alone. Just a short stroll from the Metung Hotel, many Cafe's & Restaurants along the boardwalk.

This is a small boutique type development. The decor is high tech - electric blinds. Two TV's. O modern bathroom with spa bath. Hugh king bed. A great nights's sleep. It felt that you were actually on the water. Everything was there in the appliances. Just like new. A short stroll to the main village restaurants, shops, and Pub.

We stayed in Apt 6, overlooking Bancroft Bay. The check-in from the start was a put off. The confirmation letter emailed said the entry code for the door to the apartment will be SMSed in the morning of check-in but when I rung at 11am to get the code fearing no phone reception closer to Metung, the lady I spoke...
