I had a few problems here. Firstly with confirming my booking-i think a language barrier caused a glitch. The hotel/motel is a large complex and i must admit to not feeling comfortable in terms of directions. I was made aware of the penalties that applied for infringements by a foolscap typed sheet and handing over a $200 bond. My room... More

We had booked the room with a partial ocean view. The staff was friendly and was able to book us a room on the highest (3rd) floor as requested. They were also able to provide us with a guide to tour around sunshine coast. The rooms are clean, airy and spacious. The resort is located on the main street with... More

Some good rooms and others not up to scratch. Mine was 12B, very ordinary room broken toilet, tiny television and slow and limited wifi access. The jug for tea or coffee doesn't fit under the faucet and room not cleaned during my stay. Requested a north facing room after reading reviews, no-one advised that this request would not be granted... More

We stayed in units 1 and 2. The kitchens had been updated and the patios looked out over the beach which is across the road. Beds were comfy. Lovely walking paths for early morning exercise. Plenty of restaurants nearby, SLS club is across the road. Coles store and Dan Murphy's up the road. The staff treated us like family. All... More

Stayed one night here in a quiet time in may. Our room was nothing special (hotel style studio)but didn't disappoint and was well presented - the bed was nice and comfy and the bathroom really large and the bath was huge. Nice little balcony with an ocean view, great location right by the beach. Nice pool and spa, could imagine... More

Great location and traffic noise is not an issue. However, the kitchens are very basic with minimal cooking facilities. Some apartments are better equipped and more modern than others. Fabulous beach views.
