This place blew our minds. Michael and his team (Brooke, Madi, Gene, and every other employee we encountered) were so accommodating to anything we asked. They helped us unload our luggage, offered to keep our baby seats at the front until we checked out, provided us with free drink vouchers, we felt extremely welcome... and we are not normally hotel people. This place is an absolute gem. Great facilities, rooms are fantastic. A plus plus!

We really loved the position and size of our premium room and the pool area. The service in the restaurant was very slow. There were only 2 tables in the restaurant on the 27 th December for lunch but it took an age just to be given the menus... let alone order any drinks prior to the meal...it was quite embarrassing to say the least (especially as I was trying to show my 2 children how special my home town was on this visit). They live on the Gold Coast.
