The bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were also very well appointed . The apartments also have a good sized swimming pool . Parking was also very good...

I have to agree with "Patricia R" as we booked through Luxury Escapes & on arrival we were placed into a 'broom cupboard' for the 3 nights and this room is called the Luxury Escape rooms. Certainly not luxurious believe me. There was so much going wrong. I did approach the Reception after settling in & they were quite 'matter...

Stayed one night as part of a small road trip. In hindsight this was the best accommodation we stayed in, one bedroom apartment was spacious and comfortable with a great bathroom, and good mattress on the king bed. Not much equipment if you wanted to cook, and the parking was narrow and difficult if you did not get in first....

Booked in for a 3 night mid-week special in a 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen. The rooms were spacious, clean we had lovely views across to the river. However, the rooms were very dated, tired-looking. in desperate need of fresh paint and several minor repairs. The on-site restaurant was closed - adding to the feeling of slow decline. The two...

Had a 2 bedroom self contained apartment with all the expected options, and the resort is in a good location in town. Good sized, clean, well kept rooms with comfy couches, a balcony and 3 TV's with Foxtel so would entertain a family if needed. The car park entry door had a faulty card reader and didn't accept the keycard...

Came down for a weekend break and did ask for a room with water views. Was quite excited on checking in when I was told I had a room with "great views". However the view was side on to the water and was just overlooking the vacant block next door - although I could "kind of" see the water. Not...

The unit was fully self contained, although a little more cook wear would have been better, Dishwasher. Washer dryer all there. The pool area was well...

Apart from a muck up with our room when we arrived we were very happy with revised room that we finished up with. The size of the room & the kitchen facilities together with a startling view was fantastic. Some maintenance inside the room would have made it even better.
