Stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely one bedroomed apartment on two floors with own front door. Plenty of space and 2 bathrooms. Balcony overlooking pool. Kitchen was not heavily equipped so they didn't expect you to do much cooking! Washing machine and tumble drier in utility area. Tumble drier a bit dodgy but we managed to get it to work. Ipod docking station in lounge a nice touch. WiFi available free via internet cable otherwise $5 per day. Quite a long walk to reception and the restaurant. At night it was very dark and you will need a torch if walking back to apartment. Restaurant was very good and we found the staff extremely helpful. Lovely big pool by the restaurant and some smaller pools by the apartments.
Very good buffet breakfast with lots of cooked food. Reception can book trips for you and we particularly enjoyed the Mosman Gorge trip - fabulous if you like swimming and sitting under waterfalls. Also highly recommend the Wildlife Habitat not far away -superb.
Shuttle bus will drop you in town and bring you back for a small charge.
Had to leave very, very early to catch a plane and the staff provided us with some bread and butter the night before so we could at least have some toast for breakfast.
Lovely stay and recommended.
