Our brief stay at the Tidal Waters Resort was welcomed with our lovely view of the sea shore and hilltops surround. Staff were always kept busy, although always kept up with high demand for dinner & drinks. We watched the glorious sunrise from our balcony and the beautiful sunset from the outside decking. Would definitely recommend this place.

I really wanted to like this place. Wonderful location, good sized room, bed reasonably comfortable. But there are a few issues. There is no air con (small fan provided though), the walls are thin and noise easily travels between rooms, the decor is a bit dated and could do with refreshing. So a bit of a mixed bag. Food in...

7pm dinner time. Great food and lovely waitress. Our service was good but a few tables complained, with good reason, at how slow the service was. 2 waitresses were working and 2 other older people seemed to be "pushing buttons" looking at paperwork and in the way. Nice dinning room, decor a bit dated but clean and light filled. Needs...

No aircon. Boiling hot. Stuffy rooms. Hate to think what this place would be like in the winter. The pool was refreshing and staff were apologetic. Service was slow at dinner and also mentioning no air-conditioning

The rooms have got plenty of space. They are clean and tidy. So thats all good. But it needs work. We are in a water view room. The bed is awful. No spinal support or soft top. Just a really cheap nasty spring mattress that needs replacing. Its needs the tip. The walls and ceiling are very thin. You can...

This resort is a bit dated and in need of maintenance. While it was clean and comfortable, for the price and label of "resort" it should be of a more modern standard. For example, the TV, bathroom and curtains needed upgrading. The desk staff were very helpful and friendly in recommending a place to eat and in answering my questions...

Hotel was nice and clean, however the decor was very very dated. We only stayed one night and there was really nothing wrong, check out was a bit slow but there was a surprising amount of good coffee shops around St. Helens which was a nice bonus. We didn't eat in the hotel restraunt as it had a bit of...

The room was spacious, but for the price per night it had a very tired decor. King bed comfortable enough but pillows!! Why can't anyone with accomodation places have decent pillows??? All around Tasmania for the past two weeks a great pillow has alluded us!! Shower extra small which was unusual in an otherwise spacious room. Location was central.

This is a fantastic hotel in a great location. However it has a feeling of being empty sparsely furnished in areas. They are a bit short staffed, staff are very friendly and helpful. It has great potential. Dinner was good. Would stay again.

Enjoyed our stay, the restaurant was very nice and do breakfast, lunch and dinner. Perfectly situated too, 2 minute walk to town centre and perfect spot to walk along the foreshore. Also a 15 minutes drive to the Bay of Fires.
