This was our third stay and we were once again pleased with our choice. The staff were friendly. The two-bedroom apartment was clean and comfortable. The availability of free movies meant that we couldn't move the kids out for dinner, so we all stayed in for room service. The menu options and food was very good. The hotel is centrally... More

We stayed here as a family for one night. We, the grandparents had a great room with a balcony overlooking the pool and my daughter, husband and family had a two bedroom apartment overlooking the Main Street. Our room was for a disabled person and was spacious and clean. We didn't eat here, but went over to the Bowling Club... More

The two-bedroom apartment was spacious and comfortable and we appreciated being able to go outside on to a wrap-around balcony.It was a little noisy on... More

From check in, to the bar and restaurant the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The rooms were extremely clean and well appointed and hotel facilities all great. Dinner in the restaurant that evening was delicious and very well presented and even though there were two groups in, no delay on service. It was a shame we... More

Don't be fooled this place is a pub with accomodation, yes it has nice rooms but is still just a pub with a pool not a resort, very expensive for what you get. Make sure you have your a/c at night as to get to sleep with the pub ruckus below. Go to the bowls club for a well priced... More

A quick overnight stay for us here, but it was very nice. The balcony restaurant was lovely and the service fantastic. The rooms were bigger than I expected and very comfortable. Great value for money!

I stayed here for the 2nd time, this time just for one night. The hotel was recently renovated, and is set around a centre pool / lagoon. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the free wifi is great. Wish more hotels did this.
