I booked a 1 bed apartment for a week on www.wotif.com.au for $99 per night. I wasn't expecting much given the price but was VERY VERY pleasantly surprised.
We had previously stayed at Peppers Coral Coast before a couple of days sailing. The sailing departure was delayed by a day and threw our plans out somewhat leaving us with no where to stay for the night. I called reception at The Summit and asked could I check in a day earlier and extend our stay by one extra night. They were extremely understanding and said no problems.
Check In was quick, professional, friendly and fast.
They kindly upgraded us to a very large two bedroom apartment with an amazing view of both the rainforest and the beautiful crystal clear harbour. The fitout was very modern with a huge flatscreen TV, great stereo , comfy chaise lounge, two armchairs in the living room. The kitchen was very well equipped with a huge breakfast bar and stools. The bedroom had discretion blinds and block out blinds if it got too sunny all topped off with a huge very comfy posturpedic bed. The balcony was very large with table and chairs overlooking the harbour below
I had read other reviews commenting on the steep hill, but I would note that most of the quality accommodation is located on the hillsides. These are steep hills but you will benefit from some great calf building leg exercises on the walk home each evening to work off the great food at some of the restaurants in town. The main strip is a comfortable 8 minute walk
I highly recommend Summit Apartments to anyone using Airlie Beach as a base to explore the Whitsundays. They were perfect for families and couples alike. Great value and great service
