We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it there, it's close to beach it was modern comfortable and quiet( maybe because of us going on a weekday ) . The food at the bistro was ok but if you don't like it there's a takeaway 200 metres away plus an expresso bar so if you don't like the Robert Timmssupplied... More

Clean , tidy and well presented suite . We had a lovely view of the beach . Probably not a place for a new couples first weekend away as there is no door on the toilet. Not very private - make sure shears are drawn as other guests can see straight in to your room. Food in the hotel was... More

Four of us stayed here for three nights in October. The villa was superb, well equipped, clean and very modern. This was the best three nights sleep that I had during our three week trip to Australia. The restaurant on site did $15 dollar special meals which were decent given the price. Free internet is available in the main building.... More

The website including the pictures does not do this place justice. Was a lot nicer than I thought it would be and even our garden villa had a view to the ocean. Two seperate bedrooms decent kitchen 2 bathrooms and a very comfortable king size bed. The only thing letting this place down is the food. Very basic processed foods... More

We had a good meal. The place has a great atmosphere and caters to all types. The beer was good and nice and cold. We expect that we will be back. A hidden little gem that quite a few locals know about.

Spent a relaxing weekend in a Beach Suite. It is a great location not too far from Sydney and you really feel you are away from the crowd. Beautiful beach to relax, walk and explore the caves. The hotel has a bar and restaurant and within a short drive are a number of places to eat and explore.

Rooms are fantastic, from the huge bath, rain shower, double bowls in bathroom. Love the continental breakfast in the room. Just a short walk on the boardwalk to the hotel with good food and great views.

We stayed in suite 12 which had the boardwalk behind the accommodation. As a result we did no have people walking past the front which happens if you stay in the first 10 suites. As for the food at the hotel, we weren't disappointed. Recommend booking for dinner on a Saturday night. The room was spacious and good quality. The... More
