3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Room good but small, studio with cooking facilities which consisted of electric frying pan microwave mini bar fridge toaster, hard to cook anything with that! Water park great! No under cover parking so storms a worry, don't go for the breakfast it's rubbish for the cost! Nice surroundings not far from the beach, but no sea views.

Stayed a couple of days here recently. Wow, what a great family place to stay. Apart from the roomy accommodation which seemed pretty soundproof considering quite a few young families staying at the time. We experienced excellent service from the staff especially the reception staff, there is a water park onsite, plus pool and spa separate, restaurant, tennis and a whole lot more. The grounds are lovely with lily pads in bloom on the ponds and wildlife roaming around. Gardens are well maintained. Such a tranquil place to be.
There are supermarkets across the road and a short walk to the rivers edge and onto the township over a bridge. Markets on the Sunday is walking distance too.
Only one very small thing and that is there needs to be a sharper knife to cut fruit etc in the kitchen area of family rooms and an extra hook or two to hang things up to dry. Although there is a laundry available.
Loved our stay and will definitely go again,soon we hope.

I was taking a short break with my daughter and decided to stay at this place.
The setting was great and we had an excellent room.
The location is very convenient to both shops as well as the beaches
I found the amenities were second to none as well the water park for the small kids was fantastic an we spent time also in the in house pool.
We dined in the restaurant and this was also top rating, overall an excellent place to stay and I can heartily recommend it for just couples as well as families

Room Tip: Wifi is free for 30 minutes per 24 hours this is usually plenty of time to download your daily info...

Lovely resort, made especially enjoyable by friendly and professional staff. It has a comfortable and relaxed feel, and the facilities have been refurbished to a good standard. Very clean and great access to everything. We also went to the restaurant for dinner and the food was delicious. Overall very good value for money, and will visit again.

When we booked the room we were not informed there would not be a balcony. The windows only opened a couple of inches. The room was quite nice but felt like a jail cell. After speaking with other people who had the same problem and also had children with them could not wait to leave. We were told by the staff at the resort after mentioning the problem that there are rooms with balconies but the cost was considerably higher. When advertising this resort they should at the very least let people know the hotel rooms do not have balconies and let them decide what they want to do. We paid $167.40 for an overnight stay for a hotel room. There was only tea and coffee facilities. Not even a microwave. Saying that the grounds were beautiful and well maintained and the childrens' swimming area was excellent. We will not stay there again and feel for the price can find something better and closer to the beach.

Dear Rebecca P

Thankyou for taking the time to review our resort on Trip Advisor. I was disappointed to hear that your room did not meet your expectations. As mentioned by our staff we do have a variety of accommodation options which do have balconies. In saying this we do also take on board your feedback regarding the reservations process. Please be assured that we do appreciate your valuable feedback and we will use as a tool for continuous improvement.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime as we would love the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

This is a lovely hotel that has been recently refurbished. We stayed in an Executive Family Room which was quite large, modern and met our needs nicely.
We were there for my daughters birthday and for her to visit the waterpark which was fabulous, our daughter had an absolute ball there and it wasn't overly crowded, it was also nice to be able to come away from there to a separate area and then have a swim in the other pool which is much quieter.
The gardens are beautiful, and the staff were all lovely.
There are plenty of restaurants (mexican, thai, italian, fish n chips, etc) also Stockland Shopping Centre, woolworths, coles, coffee club, bottleshop, pizza (pizza capers and dominos), cold rock icecream, pub, basically anything you you need all within easy walking distance.
We would definitely stay here again.
Oh, our bin lid was also broken, sounds like they need to replace the bins in a lot of the rooms!

Room Tip: Free wifi but only 30 minutes per day and it was pretty inconsistent - lots of drop outs.
