What a beautiful and peaceful setting! We only stayed for the weekend, but would have liked to be in the area longer. The cabin was clean and comfortable and practical for a family holiday although it couln't be called luxurious. Visitors would need to shop for provisions in Mackay before arriving. Maybe also bring your own electric frypan if staying for awhile. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We really enjoyed our visit.

Very clean unit but run down and couldn’t find the reception easily. Unit was old and definitely needs an upgrade.

Quiet location, poor facilities

The cabins are set next to the golf course and the location is peaceful and quiet. It is great having the curlews strutting around the grounds . The beach is close by and lovely to walk along, good for families with small children. Beware of sand flies! The cabin was disappointing. The hot plates were broken, fry pans rusty, air conditioner noisy and only worked intermittently, no couch. Main bed was fine but bunk beds were only thin foam mattresses which doubled as uncomfortable couch.

Flea motel

We should have been put off by the outdated decor and mould in the bathroom however we persisted. We woke up in the morning with fleas. Not sure if we should wash or burn our clothes :( definitely not a 4.5 star hotel or resort. The golf course looked nice. I don't know how Wotif have them as a listing

Budget accommodation

Small cabin, good for the price. Got at the hotel late in afternoon. Hard to find the reception. Staff didn't really know a lot to help and answer our questions. It looked like it had nice facilities such as golf course. Accomodation was budget.
