“Great base for your stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed in room 108 for 1 night, for the money we really couldn't fault the place. Beds were comfy, room was in good order and clean. Above all though we found Brian, the manager to be very helpful in organising trips and a vehicle for us - you can't beat local knowledge! Thanks!

Its an old place.
Room stank of an old house
Was cheap but still i think you can expect more from a place for about 100 bucks.

The gardens where pretty though, nice artwork in the lobby as well. There is a pool which is good. The people where also friendly. Still, the room wasnt good.

I am so glad to see this resort open and up and running again. We had a very comfortable room that had obviously been recently and tastefully refurbished. It was well equipped with a modern flat screen TV, well equipped kitchenette and bathroom. It was VERY affordable and a fraction of the cost of where we stayed on our previous trip. I would return to Amaroo any time over our previous accommodation. It will be even better when the restaurant it up and running again and they have had a chance to fix some of the access roads / paths. The gardens are beautiful, the wildlife was abundant. It was peaceful and very convenient with the bus stop right outside the door. The staff were wonderful. Come and enjoy a resort type stay and get value for money. Lynda.

I stayed here many years ago and it was very hard to find fault this time. I understand the new owners are trying to get it back up and running and the service was top notch. We were given a vehicle to use for the day and were dropped at Horseshoe Bay the night we stayed because we missed the bus. The only thing I can fault is the airconditioner was loud enough to keep us awake most of the night and the restaurant wasn't opened yet. But we loved being able to get up close with a Kookaburra while they were being fed and some Lorikeets who came in for a look. Would most definitely stay on our next trip to Maggie.
