We went as a family. The kids area was disgusting. We waited nearly an hour for food. The food was very ordinary. The eating area had a nice view. Drinks were cheap. A pity they can't make the most of their surrounds.

We stayed overnight at this property as it was close to a function we were attending at the nearby surf club. Probably this property's best feature is it's location...the motel is attached to a hotel so it is extremely convenient for meals/drinks, it's positioned across the road from the local shopping centre, plus a bottle shop is literally a stones...

We stayed @ the motel for two nights - $260 for two nights - clean and comfortable, motel is outdated and in need of a facelift - inside and out. Motel has an attached restaurant and bar plus gaming area. We ate here three times and food was really well priced and we had no complainants at all. Drinks are...

I had a one night stay for work but booked as a very last minute decision. I picked this hotel based purely on location and convenience to the shopping centre - which is just across the road and awesome access. I didn't eat there, but there is a pub and restaurant attached. Room was dated but clean. Not my best...

Great value for $12 in February. 3 choices Chicken Parmi, Beef Lasagne, and Fish. All come with chips and salad plus a choice of garlic bread or a dessert. Supposed to get a $2 venue voucher but in 2 visits we didn't get it.

My partner and I went here for lunch on Friday, after the way the staff spoke to there customers was rude and demeaning. The greating at the bar way "yep" then once we ordered they went back to talking to the other staff about who they are scoring with later that night! We thought ok we'd come out for lunch...

I went to the Kawana Waters Hotel on Saturday night for Dinner. We chose this place for it's location on the water (beside Marina). We were apprehensive because the last time my parents had dinner at the Hotel they were so disappointed by the food that they complained to the staff and received a very poor response. As this bad...

A group of 10 of us got kicked out because 1 was under the age of 18. The sign clearly says minors must be accompanied by someone over the age of 18 let alone 9 of them. Just lost yourselves a lot of business
