Initially we felt the place was just old and showing it - worn and tired carpets, fixtures that weren't tightened and a musty room smell. However it soon became evident that it was more a lack of anyone caring as holey sheets, multiple cockroaches, cigarette smells on the balcony, and a massive stain in the bath all showed. The use...

Checked into this place during the week, wow what a surprise, felt like stepping back in time, not sure when in time but late 70s - 80s is more in line with what I was presented with. The cost however was in line with something of today, go figure!!!! I obviously ticked the box with the up and coming experimental...

I could not fault the opal cove. I got a room at a price cheaper than the local caravan park which was large and well equiped for myself and 2 kids, the pool area and slippery dip kept the kids occupied for hours and hours , and the games room kept them busy in the evening (even if they didn't...

A very comfortable room in a pretty sterile environment- can't fault the stay as it is always convenient. The offer of a walk down to the beach - a bar at the pool or near the restaurant is a big bonus

Like others have mentioned, the bathrooms are terribly outdated by a decade or two but having a bed that faced the beach was well and truly worth it! Each morning we woke up and could look out at the ocean from the bed. We at the restaurant or had room service for all meals over the 2 days and were...

The location was perfect for a relaxed stopover on a drive from Sydney to Byron. Very convenient to have in house dining for dinner and breakfast, both of which were very good. Comfortable, quiet room with a small outdoor sitting area leading onto the gardens. There was no key lock on the door to the patio, so for security access...

The bed was comfortable and room temperature good. People shouting and stomping around in the surrounding rooms made sleep difficult. I would have liked it when I was late teens to early 20s. Agressive behaviour and very loud guests seemed to have free run of the hotel with staff looking the other way. I won't be back, and wouldn't recommend...

Although we did not have a chance to use the pool, the pool area looked very good and inviting. The accommodation areas however were less inviting.
