Staff were nice, however they are obviously looking to cut costs, so are using dual key rooms, but putting you in the single room, no sink, no space, just bed and four walls, with a on-suite..... No flash at all....

Good Morning AJ, Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with the room type that you booked. Our studio rooms are perfect for a short stay, with a king size bed, en suite and balcony. If you were wanting something larger I would recommend one of our beautiful one bedroom apartments in the future. Please do let me know if I can assist in any way in the future. Kindest regards, Odette Laska General Manager

The position was really good, close to casino, cafes, lagoon and the prawn star for delicious seafood.

Loved the location, loved the room. Only negative- the hot water takes too long to come through. I was able to boil the jug waiting for the hot water in the shower.

Spacious apartment in good location. Well appointed and equipped. The shower recess could have been cleaner, but otherwise a lovely place to stay.

I liked most things about the property location, cleanliness , amenities ie pool and sauna gym could do with a makeover but generally everything was great. One thing I wasn't overly happy with was payment for parking most places we have stayed always provide free parking.

Dear Fab, Thank you for your review, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately all the car spaces are privately owned, so this does limit our ability to offer complimentary parking. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager

Room was clean and in good condition, location was well situated close to the pier and plenty of things to do nearby. Greg was very helpful in providing suggestions of things to do and sorting us out with car parking (and being just very helpful and polite in general!).
