This is a budget motel and priced accordingly Good for a night Pool could have been a little cleaner Surprisingly quite considering the proximity to the hotel Would not recommend the meals at the hotel, very average and overpriced

If you want drunks yelling outside your room , if you want staff giving you no service, if you want to be told wrong information only to find out they didn't follow up your request. Then this is the place for you and they call themselves a family place to stay. You get nothing from here but misery.

Possibly the worst pub feed I've ever had! As a hotel/pub operator, the size of meals and price did not match. Along with the cold meals that were distributed. As a ALH hotel I wished for a whole lot more. Saying that the management/staff were very accommodating with this feedback and willing to provide us with a positive visit.

We went to this hotel for dinner with friends of ours hoping for a lovely enjoyable dinner but sadly we were let down. The food left me disappointed with the size and flavour, my steak was overcooked and tough. Worst of the all the staff seemed to be having a bad night with not a smile,on anyone's face except for...

Went here for dinner and was expecting quite nice food. But all three meals missed any pizazz - needed seasoning badly. Food really displayed chefs probably don't taste the food being sent out and thatthere is no passion put into the food. A coke, a beer and spirit cost well in access of $20! ouch. Unfortunately wont be back......

Trivia on a Wednesday night is great. Some interesting questions and the hotel is usually quiet,so feed service is quick. Food was pretty good when we went there and the bar staff were very friendly. Great outlook and atmosphere.

We left the guys there whilst we walked across to the nearby plaza for a shopping trip. After we joined the guys at a waterfront table for a tasty , reasonably priced lunch and lunchtime drink. Great place to spend a lazy lunchtime.

We had an upstairs room, the narrow concrete stairs are certainly not for everyone. However we were pleased we were upstairs, the small balcony overlooking the boat slip dock was quite private and quiet during the night allowed us beautiful fresh air. The room, whilst lacking a chair, (we used the plastic ones from the balcony) had a Queen memory...

Had the Po Boy burger ( pulled corned beef ) burger ok ,the hickory sauce was very over powering, fries fairly ordinary, & the aoili was very watered down ( obviously to make it go further ), drink prices fairly expensive but probably normal for sunshine coast.
