Staff were really friendly, I booked the 1 bedroom suite with spa and it was clean, spacious, had everything I needed. The outdoor pool and bar was well used, watching the sunset over Mindil Beach was perfect

Room (Deluxe King) was a decent size, bed & pillows very comfy, TV equipped with Foxtel channels although we weren’t able to access movies, view average (overlooking hotel entrance) but still relaxing to sit on balcony, bathroom quite dated but adequate, shower over bath not ideal but still suited us well. We were woken up by next doors shower making a loud screeching noise early in the morning on a few days but decided not to let it worry us. Casino facilities are nice, pools, gaming, food etc. overall room decor was a bit dated for the price paid but we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return.
