Child friendly hotel - great location - great pool

Pros: Huge rooms ( 2 bed apartment) friendly staff, great location, great pools. Poolside kiosk staff friendly reasonable prices
Cons: room decor getting on the 'tired' side - but clean and family friendly.
Location: Walk a block - at the beach - tram station. Shops 1-2 blocks away.
Booked in - reception knew our names on arrival - friendly staff. Fantastic sized room ( although on a little on the tired side). Great pools and outside area... happy kids = happy mum

Terrible Service and unclean room upon arrival

Service was absolutely appalling, despite several discussions with hotel staff our room remained uncleaned from our arrival for 48 hours. The room itself was okay but lack of cleanliness was disgusting, spew, chicken bones and rubbish on the balcony upon arrival and a general lack of disregard for cleaning throughout the entire room make it very unlikely I will ever stay at a mantra again.... To add to this compensation of two free drinks at the hotel restaurant of above mentioned issues demonstrates just how poorly your staff ensure customer satisfaction. Overall the entire experience was extremely unimpressive.

Nice family hotel

Pros: Open internal space
Cons: Electrical appliances
Location: Next door to fabulous QT buffet
Heaps of lounge chairs for a 1 bedroom appartment. Comfortable bed. No written instructions for inhouse movies, the reception instructions didn't work and/or the remote wasn't working. Toaster stopped working.

Wonderful family break

Pros: Facilities, onsite restaurants and clean/spacious rooms.
Cons: Exiting the parking area on departure. Had to leave the car park and drive around the block to go back into reception and drop.
Spacious apartments with all the facilities needed during a weekend away. The fantastic outdoor/pool area was a huge hit with the kids (we spent a whole day there!). There is a cafe overlooking the pool that is open from breakfast on wards that was delicious. We would definitely stay again.

We will return!!!!!!

Pros: Comfy bed great shower & centrally located for family catch up at great restaurants and shopping.
Cons: Dish washing liquid was only very rational amount & to buy more for our 2 night stay was money wasted. But I did not get the chance to seek out staff
Location: Local RSL nwalking distance cheap nice meals the youngest enjoyed the lights & fun of the bungee park on the same street
We have been to QLD a number of times but this was THE BEST stay. Centrally located very cosy and we had our 15mth grand child with us. We have promised ourselves another stay in the near future.
