Great spot for families. Nice indoor pool and spa, tennis court and other activities for the kids. The restaurant on site serves good food and has a nice atmosphere. The hotel is literally across the road from the beach and a short walk to the restaurants and shops in Anglesea. Once you get here, a car will not be needed.

As shown on the website, we expected an outdoor area connected to our room but instead had an upstairs room with no view as the window was frosted. No exhaust fan in the kitchen, so when you cooked the whole room smelt - but the friendlyness of the staff sort of made up for it

Room was small, not even big enough to swing a cat. Needs major maintenance. Loud especially when the smaller rooms are situated near the pool. No resort staff to be seen on grounds especially at night when older kids are running around and you have little ones trying to sleep. Restaurant over priced, good for convenience; poor on quality, under...

The hotel is comfortable, clean and very well suited for families. The big hit for our kids were the trampoline park in the back of the hotel, the indoor pool, and the easy access to the beach and river across the road.

Comfortable and clean room for two. Wifi poor, Foxtel just basic. Seems a good option for families with young children with trampoline, indoor pool and proximity to the beach etc. Being older we thought it'd be noisy but we were wrong. Easy access to main attractions in Anglesea. When you hear the word resort keep your expectations down. This is...

Average rooms - overpriced - and impersonal staff. Was pretty noisy and our room not in a great location. Must be better options around. Bedroom small. We did have a good pizza at the onsite restaurant and the gym was empty which was great.

This place is a lovely place for families or couples alike, if you don't require housekeeping. I've been twice, once with my boyfriend and the other with my family. The facilities here are great. There is a pool, tennis court, restaurant and Jumpz facility. However, they require you to take out your own trash to the bins at the front...
