Booked in for two nights as it is close to Gulf Harbour Marina and my boat was temporarily uninhabitable. Booked into a second floor room with views over the 'canal'. We seemed to be the only guests and after booking in did not see anyone at reception again.... it was a bit like being on 'the ghost ship'. The room?... More

This lodge provides comfortable accommodation in a quiet semi-surburban waterfront canal setting. I was here for a family Christmas nearby (I wasn't travelling with family which is why I've ticked Solo below, but they were close by). The room was huge (larger than my combined lounge and kitchen at home!), the bed comfortable, had a good bathroom with a generous... More

This is not luxury accommodation. Thought it was strange when i had to pay for my stay up front. Should have left then. The room is old and dated and had a musty smell. No sky TV - we asked about that and the manager said the sky was faulty and they could not fix it until monday to later... More

We booked a 3 day stay... Had to pay in total which was odd and we're told we could park 'anywhere we wanted' in the public car park... We were told we were in room 38, after we walked there to find there was no room 38, the receptionist informed us there was a room 38 and we just hadn't... More

We thought this would be ideal for our first nights of married life. Apart from convenience and location we were both disappointed. The place needs to be seriously cleaned with some mould remover! Doors locked at crazily early hour!

This hotel looked so promising on its website but the reality is very different and disappointing. The room we stayed in was very dated and felt grubby, there were stains on the bedcover and a strange smell in the room which may have been from previous occupants cooking. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were very thin. There were... More

Tidy but dated room. Good size with two doubles. Reasonable value I thought. Excellent pressure in the shower. Our room was overlooking bars and cafe so got rowdy on Friday night. Solved this by joining the festivities. Will stay again if in the area.

Thanks so much to management (Sonya, Matt & Staff) who went out of their way to be helpful and accomodate our needs and give us an wonderful stay. The room was quiet and we had no issues at all. Thanks again for everything. Highly recommended.

I am always interested to read reviews by other travellers, as there is nearly always someone who finds fault! Joe Public for you, as we say in the UK! Gulf Harbour Lodge is clean, has well appointed rooms, and overlooks the marina. We had a special rate of $99 for a room for two in November 2012. There were in... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge 7th and 8th July 2012. We had an executive suite which was very spacious and well appointed with a spectacular view down the canal. A kingsize bed, ample clothes storage for a longer stay, a dining table, writing desk, sofa, all made for a very relaxing environment. There was also a toaster... More
