We spent 4 nights there in a bay view room which was an upgrade from what we had booked.If you dont want to risk maybe not getting an upgrade book it.Worth the price.Room was in good condition and reasonable size for hotel room. However we were charged the upgrade fee on checkout.I pointed out that as gold accor member I am entitled to free upgrade and it was immediately applied.Front office staff we dealt with were really great.Maheno was easiest to eat at but service is not great ,I dont blame staff as they seemed to be understaffed and running around the whole time,It is more like a Sizzler type restaurant where you order meat then serve yourself from very basic buffet. We ate 2 nights at Sand Bar as it was less crowded plus they do $8 cocktails from 5 to 7.Burgers are different and tasty.Calamari was great and heaps of it.There is a more upmarket restaurant we did not try.Great variety of accommodation from hotel rooms to apartments to villas to houses.You would need a 4wd though to get around once there or pay for tours. Stunning scenery.Would I stay there again definitey.Would be a 4 star with a little more attention to detail.We had half opened milk in our fridge which I guess we were expected to use.Ammenities were not checked No moisturiser no shaving gel and little conditioner.As hotel encourages you to forgo daily servicing for $10 eco credit it was not addressed our whole stay. This let down its stunning spot on Fraser. Ferry from mainland comes and goes from there or on low tide drive up beach and across the island from Inskip Point. Long drive though as cross island- road is slow going.People with disabilities should check that they get a room on upper floor close to reception area.Otherwise a lot of stairs and walking trails.
