Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a family room for 3 males. Squeezy but OK. Bed were comfortable rooms were clean and adjacent to the restaurant and Reception. The laundry was a short walk away. The room charge included breakfast which was very welcome, and stay open until 9am.

We spent a night at the Albatross Bay Resort, an interesting complex in Weipa which does have limited venues to stay and eat. It is a busy large hotel and the local watering hole for the town. We had some issues with air conditioner in our room which was sorted after a while. The bed was comfortable and we had a good sleep, our bathroom was a good size and the shower very good. There is a nice grassed area linking the accommodation area to the dining and bar areas which were quite busy. Unfortunately the dining was not up to speed with some dishes being missed for our group. The breakfast the next morning was a disaster with the dining room running out of juices, fruit, even hot water and some other basic items so our group set out with empty stomachs - not good enough for a major hotel who is supposed to cater for tour groups.

Room appeared clean and tidy, despite a bad smell - but on closer examination it was not. Dirty pillows, somebody’s clothes hanging in the wardrobe, a giant cane toad in the toilet. Front counter staff the next day were very apologetic and displayed awesome service; but experience was enough to avoid in future.

It’s not the fact that this place is old, the room is comfortable but broken.
I don’t usually complain, but, air conditioner remote broken, contacted reception told will fix, nothing. Called back at 9pm … still nothing…
Was next day received a remote that worked.
2 lights not working told at the same time, still not fixed.
No toilet paper, soaps or towels next day on room clean 🤦🏻‍♂️
Called at 8pm & they sent some to room.
Care factor to us is zero.
Very disappointed.
Restaurant breakfast included is very basic.
But eating in the Tavern is excellent. Great chefs great food.
Not worth the money to stay here but would try other places

the experience of the night at the Albatross was an experience. went to bed and woke up with bites all over my body. when the general manager called me he was agressive and basically blamed me the customer for the bites after sleeping in his establishment. After paying $236pn and having a terrible experience he refused to offer any compensation. the customer service and the room are as bad as each other

probably the worst wing I have ever paid for. DRY DRY DRY. These were cooked hours maybe days earlier and heated up to order....... no even a fresh lathering of aioli could resuscitate these bad boys!

Cooks, not chefs!

The rooms were very nice, the bathrooms were a bit dated and the beds weren't comfortable. The meal we had at the hotel restaurant was just delicious with scallops in the original shells. We went for a drive around and shopped at the local shopping center which was reasonably large.

This place needs money spent on it to bring it back to something like being a ”resort”.
Though initially looking promising it is actually a bit run down and dirty. The donga accommodation is old and dirty and the staff lackadaisical - couldn’t care less.
The food was passable.

Extremely disappointing. We were on a booked tour and stayed at many places on our way to Cape York. The Albatross was by far the worst place. The rooms were damp and mouldy and the meals largely inedible. The place needs major refurbishment. The almost completely foreign staff were helpful but could not make up for the tired grimy conditions.

A large hotel with a Sports Bar, outdoor dining and a Top quality restaurant. We had lunch one day on the terrace which was typical good pub food. However, we went to the restaurant one evening and were blown away with the quality of our meals. Definitely comparable to city dining!! Well done to your chef. It’s a shame you are so far away because it would be great revisit you. Definitely recommend.
