We stayed for one night in a large unit with good sized bedrooms but the unit was a bit run down. The lounge is falling apart, cushions worn and a shelf in the lounge room was falling down. The beds were very comfortable and it was fairly quite. The pool looked beautiful but we didn't get a chance to use...

I stay at the Allamanda regularly. Clean modern rooms with Foxtel and great cooking facilities. Heated pool and spar, table tennis and sauna. Short walk to the beach and lake. Plenty of home delivery and dine out food choices in the area. Fantastic little getaway and excellent value for money. Jon

This is backpacker level accommodation at hotel prices. Small hot water system means short showers. Pictures in advertisement are misleading. Staff are not onsite to assist needs, you need to phone. My advice is to research thoroughly before your stay to ensure you know what to expect.

Hi Caroline, Thankyou for your review. Unit 42 is one of the apartments that have been recently refurbished. Our pool and spa area is certainly a highlight. We apologise that the spa heater wasn't working during your stay - this has since been repaired and should you choose to stay we would love to accommodate you again.

We stayed on the top floor of this three storey complex. The apartment was well equipped, bed very comfortable but the sofa lounge seat NOT! The apartments were small, just okay for two people . There is NO lift so be warned everything has to be carried upstairs. There and many rules and regulations posted everywhere, not very welcoming ....

Thankyou inja-48 for taking the time to review your experience at Allamanda Retreat. Our 1 bedroom apartments are suited to maximum 4 guests (ideally 2 adults and 2 children) and we understand the sofa-beds are sometimes not a comfortable option as a sofa.
