Never had my partner and I been so insulted by rude and patronising staff before. The woman who was behind the front desk for most of our stay was unwelcoming and offensive. We are very hassle-free guests; we make no demands, we ask for no favours.
However, from the moment we stepped foot in the front door of this hotel, we were treated like vermin. The Receptionist had a bad attitude.
Also, the driveway is so steep our car scraped (a regular family sedan) and it was obvious that many other people had too, on further inspection.
The included 'free' breakfast that we were offered was an embarassment. It was so paltry that you virtually had to pay their exhorbitant prices for something off the menu. They had two cereal options, white bread only and instant sachet tea and coffee. For around $400 per night you would expect a lot better.
Also, we only stayed there because they could guarantee undercover secure parking (I've had bad open air parking experiences in Forster before.) Well, well, well... what do you know. We return to the hotel after a bit of sightseeing and the undercover car park is choc full.
Save your money and and do not stay at this hotel. Especially during summer as the rooms overlook a car park near the beach where teenage thugs congregate late at night and you simply cannot sleep. When you ring Reception, nobody answers.
A truly awful and horrible experience.
