After buying two day passes to Dreamworld for my family I wanted a place close by to crash at the end of a busy first day. On the drive out to Hotel, there are plenty of shops and food outlets as well as some stunning homes. It's not until you reach the last major roundabout that you take to head out to the hotel you get the feeling that you may have taken a wrong turn with undeveloped property that looks like it's been there for a while. On arrival the staff were friendly and the place looks nice at first glance. The undercover carpark was good, but was in need of a clean of leaf litter. Entering the room it smelt fresh and the A/C was already on. Bathroom was well set out and the linen was fresh as well my sons linen on the already set up foldout. The pool looked inviting but not as inviting as the spa in our room. The only view is of the boats in the marina with a large grassy mound cutting off any view beyond that. At night the bar was open but was empty and the place was whisper quite. Breakfast was simple but nice, bacon, sausage, hash browns with only an egg selection of scrambled but plenty of breads,cereal and juices. The place is nice, but you get the feeling that it's struggling. It's location is perfect if you want to go to Dreamworld or Movieworld for that matter, but not so good for Surfers Paradise. Looking around there where old rusted tables sitting on the walkway on the marina that where broken and miss match tables and chairs that look to be very old at breakfast. Lunch and dinner is not longer available and neither is room service. Good weekend getaway if your off to the fun parks, quite location but like I said, seems like somethings missing.
