My partner recently arranged for a weekend at O'Reilly's as a birthday gift for me. Sure, it's a nice place to stay especially when your other options involve a tent. However, for the same price, we could have flown to the Hunter Valley, hired a car for 2 days and spent the weekend at a resort there.
The rooms were very nice but cleaning staff didn't take away any rubbish. The views from the "Mountain View" rooms is pretty good and the staff were friendly. My only complaint about the place is the price. The restaurant is very expensive and the only place to eat if you're staying there.
If you're an overseas visitor (and many of the guests were), then time is important and the cost of staying here won't significantly increase the total holiday spend. However, if you're a local, then stay in Canungra and drive up to the National Park each morning - it's much cheaper.
