Having stayed here a number of times it never fails to be up to standard. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Being underground it is a wonderful experience as well as maintaining a very comfortable 23 degree average temperature year round. Rooms range from a compact and well layer out double with communal kitchen to two bedroom family rooms with self contained kitchenette facilities. If you are looking for quiet be sure to ask for a room away from the central hall. The front is an excellent sunset vantage point looking over the breakaways.

Began the process of online booking, let them know we had pets, spoke with manager who said pets are welcome. Arrived to be told pets outside 40 plus degrees. NOT WHAT Was ADVERTISED. Told he wouldn’t charge, waited till we left then charged the account $130.00 and now refuses to refund- he thinks that is fair to take money even though did not stay. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

My friends and I shared a two bedroom underground apartment here and absolutely loved it! Not only was it an unusual experience, but the apartment was well designed, comfortable, clean and roomy. Our private patio was an added bonus. The grounds are well maintained and landscaped. We paid AUD $10 per bag to have our laundry done - which was completed the same day. Without a car and arrival via Greyhound in the evening, the caretaker picked us up at a local restaurant after dinner to check in. We were provided a ride to the airport upon departure as well. Our walk to the shops and restaurants was easy... The staff was quite delightful! Highly recommend!
