We booked one night here as a break and it was just what we were looking for. We arrived at 1pm and were initially disappointed that we were unable to check into our room as it was not ready. We went and had lunch and came back at 2pm and we were extremely happy with the room we were given which was much larger than we had expected. It was a corner room and therefore had oceans of space and the balcony was massive.
We joined the loyalty program which was free to join and it gave us 20% off all food and drinks. The best part of it though was that it also gave us a late check-out of 1pm the following day instead of the standard 10am which was fantastic. I would recommend anybody who stays to do this.
The disappointing parts of the stay was the cost of parking as it was around $29 for the night on top of the cost of the hotel. The only other option was a public car park for $1.70 an hour. We also ate in the hotel for the evening meal and had the buffet and whilst it was nice, $45 per person was excessive for the food you got so we would eat out instead in future.
The pool area was very nice and designed well but the spas were cool, dirty and a bit shabby with headrests missing or broken. A shame really as we were looking forward to giving them some use but decided against after seeing them.
Overall a pleasant stay and we will definitely return for another nights break sometime in the future.
