“Great as always”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

3rd year we have stayed at the Roundhouse and as pleased as always. Stayed 10 nights this year and as always makes a great base. The staff are helpful and friendly and Dave the owner is just a great chap, also very knowledgeable about the sharks and the diving and gets you a good deal which is always a sweetener. The rooms are large, clean and just pleasurable to stay in. Thanks for everything Dave and staff as usual and especially saving us when we got the hire car stuck on the beach!!!! lol

We loved the Roundhouse! The rooms were beautiful and location great. Located close to the water with great trails. Also plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. Thank you for allowing us to return to shower after our shark diving.

The rooms (open plan lounge/kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom) were clean, spacious, elegant and very comfortable. Every need was taken care of, to the extent of having access to a jacuzzi on the top deck with a view to die for. Thank you for allowing us to come back to the room to shower after a smelly morning at sea. We will be back :)

The service was excellent, it was very relaxing environment, after the excitement from the shark cage diving. Spectacular view. Clean room, everything was there what you needed.
Will definitely stay there again

We arrived at The Roundhouse very late but were welcomed warmly. The rooms are well sized and the bathrooms huge. Everything was clean and tidy. The view from the first or second floor is amazing. The young girl who is running the place during the day was extremely helpful and very nice. Nice jaccuzzi :-)
