Well appointed unit next to beaches and restaurant

Pros: Cleanliness, Champagne glasses and proximity to everything at Horseshoe Bay.
I stayed with a couple of friends for an over night stay on Magnetic Island. We were all pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartment and how well it was appointed. It is often difficult to find single night accommodation so we were happy that we found it at the Resort. We were also well placed right next to restaurants, the beach and walking trails.

Great spot across the road from beach

We had a smell which we later found was mouldy bread above stove. The glass door to the balcony didn't lock, and the kitchen was covered with tiny ants and we had to keep spraying and wiping it clean to be able to eat in there. When we tried to speak to staff, we found them gone from 6pm to 8:30, and we were gone well before that. Oh the Austar remote had AAA instead of AA so it didn't work either. But without any of that, the location and amenities surrounding it were superb!

Pros: Room was clean and well presented. Great spot in the bay. Everything in the room that you needed. Staff were very helpful and eager to please
Cons: Too many outside noises from within the motel (plumbing from other rooms and vacuum cleaners at 07.30). No milk in the fridge when you check in, bed
