Stayed 5 nights , fairly priced , great location in the middle of Airlie Beach. Backs onto the beach front lagoon. Rooms a little dated but a good bed, a great shower. The atmosphere is good as its right in the main street with walking to all amenities. Park your car and pack your car keys away until you leave. Would stay here again!

From the moment we attempted to open the door to having the leave the room clean and tidy and “take out the garbage” as you leave, this place charged a premium price and doesn’t deliver. The smells from the restaurant’s exhaust fan next door comes into the bathroom, and stinks your room up!! It was built close to 50 years ago and looks like only the bare minimum has been done to upgrade the facilities. The fridge had no proper shelving, (see picture) which another traveler had bought to the owners attention several months ago. I thought by now they would have replaced them… but nope, that would cost them money. No cupboards, just a rack with no hangers provided. (See picture) You are given 1 white (greying) thinned towel for each guest, to last 4 days. What a joke, they don’t alert people to that fact when you book. Also the rack provided to dry your towels on is rusted. See picture. The toilet looks like it hasn’t been cleaned since the last century. Putrid. (See picture) we were expected to clean it when we left. Which made me wonder if these units are cleaned and sanitised between guests, particularly in this age of Covid!! Definitely a health hazard. No screens on doors, so you cannot sleep with the sliding door or window open for fresh air at night. Security is a big concern here as the back door doesn’t have a dead lock. We were warned about thieves coming into the complex, but obviously nothing has been done to secure the guests possessions while they are out. I would advise people to look elsewhere in Airlie Beach, and not waste hood money on this dump.

Stayed here after another location and were happy with our stay. Room is ok with good kitchen. Location is spot on and having key access to lagoon is outstanding. Staff are super friendly and wonderful. Definitely recommended to stay here.

Great little place, very central and with good security for your car. Marnie and George were terrific - we got held up because of an accident on the highway but they made sure we could get in ok and gave us an extra phone number just in case. They were very hospitable and friendly. Good room, pool facilities and you are in the middle of the main dining and wining area of Airlie.
