We had an upstairs room, the narrow concrete stairs are certainly not for everyone. However we were pleased we were upstairs, the small balcony overlooking the boat slip dock was quite private and quiet during the night allowed us beautiful fresh air. The room, whilst lacking a chair, (we used the plastic ones from the balcony) had a Queen memory... More

Had the Po Boy burger ( pulled corned beef ) burger ok ,the hickory sauce was very over powering, fries fairly ordinary, & the aoili was very watered down ( obviously to make it go further ), drink prices fairly expensive but probably normal for sunshine coast.

We'd come every weekend as they would have Seafood Sunday's. They still have the seafood towers for $45 on Sunday's which are amazing but I'm guttered they don't do $5 prawn buckets anymore or the $1 oysters. You should also come between 4-7pm Mon to Friday they have $7 pints of somersby apple cider! (Along with the beers) Def worth... More

My friend and I came away for a girly weekend conference. This accommodation was cheap and better than what we were anticipating for the price. Clean, quiet & comfortable rooms, good car parking and lots of lovely walks around the area. Would definitely stay here again.

Very over priced and out dated. Only 1 plug to share for the tv and jug. Room stinks of chlorine/urine. 220 is wayyyy to overpriced considering how disgusting and small the rooms are. Also should have been given a discount on the room price as the lady at reception informed us there will be no power from 4.30-8.30 am. Not... More

Location of this hotel is great. We waited a long time for our food. My wife ordered fish and chips, which were cold and the fish tough and tasteless. I ordered Po boy burger which was tasty and cold. Overall very disappointed in the service and food.

Came here today with my family for lunch. Had the ultimate steak & seafood meal for $38. Steak was underdone (asked for med-well and came out medium) I didn't really care, I just ate it cause i was hungry. Came with 1 scallop, 2 grilled prawns, salad was mostly lettuce and no chips. Went up to the counter to order... More

My husband and I come here most Sunday afternoons for a drink. It is a pleasant spot to sit in the afternoon sun at this time of the year. Autumn, Winter and Spring. In Summer there is usually a sea breeze and plenty of shade. The beer is cold and there is a chilled relaxed atmosphere. My one complaint is... More

The front bar is a disgrace. The toilets stink and the beer from the taps not much better. Have been here many times so speaking from experience. Staff not too bad though The food out the back bar/deck reasonable and a nice place to have a drink, but not overly cheap.

Standard bedrooms in a small motel/hotel that are looking quite tired, bathroom is outdated, and the walls are thin. There is a small fridge and a coffee maker and a balcony or porch at the back. The pool filter was not running and the pool was very dirty. The hotel is off a main road and was a bit hard... More
