This is the fourth time I've stayed at Gulf Harbour Lodge. I've stayed almost every Christmas lately as it provides, in effect, an extra bedroom for my extended family who live nearby. I had booked a King Water View Room, but think I only got a Premium Room because I needed an extra bed at short notice for my brother.... More

Firstly I must start with the good points that the lodge has a lovely outlook onto the canal area and is close to nearby bar and restaurants. Wifi was also provided with a very limited data allowance. The beds were adequate though a little uncomfortable but the room we had was at least quiet. However I am glad we weren't... More

Chose location for some luxury for a special occasion and paid the price accordingly. Difficulty with telephone conversation and mutual understanding; service at reception minimal and with disinterest; little attempt to welcome and no concept of escorting guests to a room or concern for luggage. Reception area presentable although elsewhere showed signs of needing attention. Initially the decor of the... More

The room itself was quite nice, and the staff were amenable. Upon checking in on a Friday night we were warned that the bars downstairs could get a little noisy, but its usually dies down around 12am. Awesome start. I didn't really want to pay $110 a night for that, but what can you do - they were otherwise booked... More

A nice and clean hotel (although a bit old) to spend a weekend. Not many restaurants around. But the Indian restaurant downstairs offers great food and service. Many nice beaches around, safe for swimming
