We were both very excited to get to this hotel as the pictures looked amazing! We got to the hotel and the front looks grrat. We were greeted by an extremely friendly receptionist who gave us loads of information about what to do in the area. In fact, reception were excellent all week and were our only real highlight here.... More

Stayed for a night in August. This places needs a serious makeover. Carpark has crater like pot holes, huge. We went looking for the spa that was on the welcome map they gave us, after 30mins in the dark we rang to ask where it was to be told they don't have a spa and haven't had for quite some... More

The room was a bit tired. Water damage to the bathroom door. The whole unit needed a refurbishment. However I did note that a refurbishment was being overtaken in other rooms. So I am guessing that ours is on the list somewhere. Taking into consideration of the rate we were charged I can't really complain. This establishment was probably "the... More

The room is tired and urgently needs to be seriously renovated. The view of the pool is pleasant, but you could not say the same about the room interior. We could not even check in and check out without being interrupted repeatly by rude chinese tourists.

But you can, tatsed like the baked potatoe was made the day before and reheated that night. Scotch Fillet was cooked medium rare as I asked but not nice at all. Rooms basic but... More

Stayed here for one night as it is not far from the airport and I had a late flight in and an early flight out the next morning. I'm glad it was only one night. Closer to the airport than the city, the place looks pleasant enough from the outside however the rooms are essentially run down motel rooms without... More

A large group od us stayed here overnight before flying to PNG to do the Kokoda Track. The rooms were basic but clean. The bathroom was fine with a good shower. Tea & coffee making supplies were adequate. The pool area is very nice with a sandy beach along one edge. Dinner was okay in the restaurant - not great.... More

Spent a night here on a business trip and was very unimpressed. The room are very old and dated. While the air conditioning worked, the bathroom was something from the 70s, very worn and in need of upgrade for the price charged. The restaurant left a lot to be desired. Drinks took half an hour to be delivered, with only... More
