This is budget accommodation so you can't expect too much. But it is filthy. I admit we have stayed here a few times due to the price but we now take thongs/ flip flops to wear in the shower because of the mould and obvious lack of cleaning & our own pillows when we can. The service is truly terrible.... More

booked this one online on the freeway after a long drive and needed a stop over. Price was good and while it looks a bit old from outside, it was comfy and clean inside. Close to the Broadwater and around the corner from CSI Club. Kitchenette and a few foxtel channels. Not bad for a quick stay.

This is a budget resort so don't expect any extras! It is just a bit tired. That being said, if you are looking for cheap accommodation then give this resort a go. We have just had four days there and the rooms were clean and the microwave, fridge, TV etc. seemed quite new. The bed linen was spotless, the towels... More

When we arrived the reception was less than reasonable. After checking in and proceeded to room to find that there were no hangers in the wardrobe and the state of cleanliness of the room was less than poor. Dirty bathroom, windows that looked like they have not been cleaned for months or years.

After reading prior reviews was tempted to cancel. However as only staying one night and as it was considerably cheaper than others went ahead with trepidation expecting at least an interesting experience. Unit with spacious bedroom, large kitchenette and dining and spacious bathroom. All clean and tidy and everything worked.Undercover parking and good size pool as well as spa pool.Yep... More

The premises were not up to standard, the furniture was damaged and very stained kitchen cupboard hanging off the hinges, smoke alarm hanging loose from the ceiling. A swimming pool and half tennis court, does not constitute calling it a resort in this day and age. What made it bearable that the staff were nice and friendly.
