This is one of the nicest places we have stayed. The resort is immaculately clean and the staff are really friendly. The rooms have everything you need, are beautiful and comfortable. There is lots to do at the resort too, with a pool, games room, tennis court and a craft area. There is a bus stop a few steps away...

Great time, wonderful resort with all the amenities one would expect at a much higher cost. Good to be able to hire a cheap car at the resort itself and get great info from the resort owners Peter and Eileen. Thanks guys...

From the moment we arrived for our short break on Magnetic Island I knew we'd chosen wisely. My boyfriend and I stayed here with my parents last month, we were accommodated in rooms that were close by and received a warm welcome. All staff are friendly and approachable. Their local knowledge is fantastic and if you stay here I'd recommend...

We stayed for a couple of nights but could have easily relaxed here for more! The bures are comfortable and clean, with a kitchenette and bathroom, indoor and outdoor seating areas. The pool was divine. The service was friendly and welcoming. It was convenient to the marina, Mexican and Thai restaurants, a bakery and to the bus stop where you...

We absoloutely LOVED this hotel! From the moment we arrived for our (originally) 3 night stay we were so impressed! The welcome was friendly and informative, the gardens are immaculate, the pool area so appealing-surrounded by plants and spotlessly clean. The rooms are simple but everything you need and very spacious, and again really clean! Each with their own patio...

Clean, organised, friendly and spacious accommodation. Pool is a perfect place to end the day after a busy time walking and exploring the island. Great value for money. Is away from some of the hustle and bustle but central. Bus stop just up the road so access to the island is easy. Plan to come back with our kids. Thanks...

A really nice privately owned resort, the owner was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The whole resort was really well set up so it was pleasant sitting outside looking out onto gardens. The pool was central to all the rooms and was a pleasure to sit by with plenty of shade.
