Mid week stay was great location is not too far from basic amenities. Would of liked to have a swing but late day of work restricted me from getting there before closing time. over all great accommodation with nice setting to end a hard days work/play. Only disappointed that I didn't get to try the restaurant due to mid week close times but bar and bar food was great, Enjoyed my stay and will be returning next week for my next work trip.

Overrated & overpriced

Stayed for 4 nights in July with three kids. Large resort situated on golf course, with plenty of accommodation options but little else to offer families. Would not recommend for families with older children as there is not much to do. Games room was closed, movie nights featured films tailored to < 10s, only one tennis court and too cold for swimming in external pool. Indoor heated pool is like an echo chamber and therefore annoying. Dining options extremely limited. Shallow Bar is rubbish, and Barrett's only good for buffet breakfast. Service offering inconsistent, some of the wait staff rude and haughty. This place may be a better option in Summer, but for the price (over $500 per night off peak), Qld is a better option. This hotel is for retirees and those who like to golf or basically do nothing.
