“Perfect Winter Weekend Gateaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

We decided to book a Spa Room on a last minute decision and were really pleased with the hotel. The room is spacious, clean and the linen is fresh (don't be put of by their website pictures - it's much more modern).
We asked for a balcony and late check-out and got both with no extra cost.
The spa bath was great, maybe they could provide a bit nicer spa bath bubbles if you are going to be picky.
Amazing food at the restaurant next door, recommend it to anyone staying in the area. The chairs and tables don't suit the place but the chef and menu are great.
Situated right accros the road from the water, a short walk to the shops and quick drive to Sorento.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs rooms very spacious.

We had a conference accross the road at the yacht squadron which was fantastic, then walked back to the motel. It was nice, not exactly a modern place like some of the city hotels, no big plasma screens, no in room massages, nothing like that, i guess you save money coz they don't have all of the goodies

I checked in, and also was left a key at reception, the room was adequate for my needs, near the pool which was a little fancy, I asked for a late checkout and only had to pay extra $20

Like others check in = a key in an envelope, our room smelt like cat urine so I asked for another one, we were given a room with a view of a construction site (even though there were very few guests). Builders started at 7am and could see in to our room. List of problems inlude: Air Con felt like we'd started a minor earthquake so we couldn't use it, esp at night if trying to sleep, room was tacky, TV was analogue and very small, beds uncomfortable, mold on deck, flying ants in the room at night, dish tub for washing dishes was a joke, our room didn't get made up one day, lawns and gardens were unkept, pool looked uninviting and no personal service whatsoever. Overall a run-down, over priced hell hole. I travel extensively and this is one of the worst places I've ever stayed (for the money). We felt ripped off and it ruined our holiday.

Unfriendly reception. I was not given any information regarding the area. Upon calling the mobile number listed on the reception door I was made to wait for the receptionist to appear. A scruffy disgruntled man promptly charged me upfront and then disappeared. I was charged full price despite checking in late in the afternoon.

The room had smelly carpet and the decor was tacky. It cost $5 more than the 4.5 star peppers moonah links resort.

I will never stay there again. In the morning I had a sore back due to the mattress. I couldn't wait to check out. The only positive was the location.
