“Honeymoon paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

I spent a week of my honeymoon in this hotel and I loved it. The room was amazing, food was second to none and the staff were helpful and polite. They even had a bottle of chilled champagne waiting for us when we got to our room. Airlie itself was my favorite place out of anywhere I visited in Australia. The people, the restaurants, the nightlife and the stubbies all contributed to an amazing honeymoon (oh and my husband of course)! I'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: If you can afford the rooms with an outside bath...go for it. It's my only regret.

I thought I would be disappointed because I had only booked a garden view room, but I definitely wasnt! The bar & pool area has the most amazing views and is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink in the sun, who wants to be in their room anyway! Not that there is anything wrong with the rooms, they are lovely. The continental breakfast is probably one of the best I have had - they have everything you could think of!

Went to dinner with my partner and we ordered oysters to start with, they were absolutely humongous! Even the staff were amazed at the size! Amazing views in Coral sea especially if you go there for lunch! Staff are always friendly and food is always good!

I used this hotel for a recent writers festival. All participants were amazed by the wonderful views and the pool. The staff could not do enough for us, making sure that everyone could enjoy the views by placing chairs opposite the windows. Dinner was on par with some of the best restaurants anywhere in the world. I will certainly be using this hotel to do the next writers festival. The manager deserves a big thank you for his enthusiasm.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have stunning sea views.

Loved everything about this resort, super comfy bed, open plan, amazing views, impeccable service.
We stayed here only one night, but left wanting more. We were going to book a garden view room after being allowed to take a walk down by the poolside bar and scope the view we had to gladly pay extra for the view which is well worth it.
Our room was clean and fantastic, the slat wall between the bedroom and the bathroom was was a little interesting to begin with but not a hassle.
The restaurant had unusual selections, but fantastic food so step out of the box when ordering its great. And your sitting poolside looking over the ocean, doesn't get much better.
The service at dinner was pricey, but I felt the staff earned ever dollar. The table beside us had a small child, who was a little unsettled and they kept apologizing to us about the noise even though we didn't mind, kids are kids.. But what was impressive was a staff member came to their table and offered, and took the child for a walk in the push hair for a good 20 minutes or so allowing them to enjoy their meal in peace for a moment.. I thought was was very impressive.
Overall we will be back to this resort many times. Pay for the View it's worth it.. Love this place

While not plush the rooms are comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found our accommodation to be clean and the staff friendly. The room had a couple of quirks though, the t.v. is in a bizarre place, under the window and not in a position to be viewed and the window has venetian blinds that allow light and day light through rather than block out cutains that are required in any 3* motel.
Breakfast is adequate, though not extensive, a continental is included in the tarrif, with a hot dish $12 extra. I particularly liked the cappuccino machine.
The hotel is a short distance from the main restaurant/shopping area although as the views are to die for we were not fussed about leaving the property.

Room Tip: Request a Coral Sea Room as the views are stunning

Thank you we are please you enjoyed. The TV is on an arm that allows it to be viewed from any where in the room including the balcony. Just pull it out from its position.
