Although this should be an awesome venue being so close to an amazing beach the restaurant is very disappointing. Today was in the 40s - there was one airconditioner on, which you couldn't fee. One ceiling fan had no blades and the others were on slow mode and not doing a thing! The food was extremely overpriced - I had...

We enjoyed our time at Caves Beachside Hotel, the rooms were very nice and the staff where very helpful. Also caves beach its self is stunning. How just a few things that may put people off, there is no phone reception and the only meal within the whole area is the caves beachside hotel pub.

My partner and I booked a random long weekend here in late November last year. It isn't too far from Sydney but far enough that it felt like you were on a proper vacation. The villa we had was wonderful and clean and extremely comfortable. Food from the bistro was delicious and beach was just perfect. The staff were all...

I love to dine in places with water views. Arrived here at 6pm and decided to eat at this hotel choosing an outdoor table with views over a pool of water lilies and the breakers. I ordered the barramundi from the blackboard menu. Absolutely delicious. The taste of the dill beurre sauce still lingers. The snap peas were crunchy. Barramundi...

Very disappointed, very expensive and shabby! Lunch menu was basic, very few light meals available and $25.00 for a schnitzel. I ordered a salad but found it to be laden with oil. Looking around I noticed birds flying in and walking around, thankfully not on the tables, cushions stained and decor looking tired. Shame as this was a beautiful place...

Well it was very disappointing.The Squid plate to share was cold and rubbery, my Morrocan lamb burger was raw in the centre, my friends fish in panko crumb was dry and very dark as if cooked in oil that needed changing. For the price it was pathetic.. When I spoke to the waitress with my feedback she just shrugged it...

We attended a wedding at the Caves Beachside Hotel last weekend. While photos were being taken we had a few drinks at the bar. Staff were friendly, helpful and fun. There were a lot of people in the bar, but every detail of our orders was remembered after our first order. At the wedding reception, we were lucky enough to...

We had been with friends before and enjoyed the food and atmosphere so called in on our day of exploring. Food was great. Staff friendly and proactive in protecting customers from the ever demanding crows and magpies. The hotel facilities are well presented throughout. A great location. Thankyou. Will be back.

We stayed for 4 nights in December 2016. 3 generations including 3 kids aged 6 8 and 9. Our 2 storey house was beautiful and very clean and modern. The beds were the most comfortable imaginable. Upstairs and downstairs bathrooms so everyone could spread out. The walk to the caves was pleasant enough down the beach (non patrolled patch adjacent...
