“Enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Second time staying here, found it good the first time so booked again. We got a good deal on a stay for 3 nights, pay for 2. That made it a good enough price compared to lot of hotels in the area. We stayed in an executive twin room which was clean and spacious and had a lovely big balcony. We only ate at the Mexican restaurant on site, which was quite good and relatively reasonably priced. The Thai restaurant on the main road was lovely, and good value!! The pool was a little disappointing, but then we were using the hotel as a base for boat trips etc, so it wasnt a great problem. Reception was functional and worked well, on-site parking included free for the hotel rooms. Overall I would recommend for the price we paid, however - if we had paid the full price for 3 nights, I might have expected a little bit more.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights recently & had a great time.

Reception staff at check in were really friendly & helpful. They seemed to be able to anticipate every question & told us before we had to ask. Just wonderful.

Our room faced the beach, which was brilliant. Cleanliness was great, bed was comfortable, air conditioning worked well. There was plenty of coffee, tea & sugar put out. And cold milk in the fridge.

There is free undercover parking. The only issue I had was the WiFi, it didn't seem to be able to connect. We had our own WiFi stick so it wasn't a problem. But take note, if it's important to you. We ate at Capers & Mangrove Jacks (which belong to the hotel) and the staff were just as friendly as the reception staff.

All in all, a lovely stay.

Booked on the spot as we suddenly needed an extra night in Airlie Beach and we were told this was e best hotel around and was 4-5*.... It wasnt at all.
Room was pleasant enough but not exactly amazing and not as clean as I wound have liked. The room did its job and we slept well.
The staff at reception weren't attentive and I was quite distressed when they said they'd "hold" our bags for us for the rest of day after we checked out but then proceeded to leave them on full show right by the front door of th hotel whilst they were in the back room and bobbing about. Maybe it's my mentality and fear of losing my luggage but I wasn't very happy about their lack of concern for all my suitcases!
Also we werent made aware of the early checkout time (10am) until we checked at 10:50 if it was 11.... Woops! Luckily they didn't seem to mind that we were an hour late!
Good location for a few bars/restaurants/shop & the beach but perhaps being spoilt by actual 4/5* hotels has tainted my view on this one...

Room Tip: Watch the sunset wit a room on the front overlooking the beach :)

This hotel was central although Airlie is a small town but you dont have far to walk to catch the bus outa town. The hotel was very clean if a little dated but exceptional value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had lost my engagement ring on this leg of our trip and the girl at reception was very helpful at giving me information on were the neareast police station was and the telephone number.

The rooms were exceptional for the price, and the hotel convenient for all needs during a holiday. We will return but next time will get a room that makes the most of the location and provides a view to enjoy. The staff were welcoming and very helpful - all you could ask for!

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get a room with a view

We stayed for one night prior to our yacht trip; the time of day and the hotels central location were the main factors for staying there. I felt the rooms were over-priced for what they were. However, the hotel was clean, the staff efficient and parking was ample. Overall it was functional but nothing special.
