I loved the kitchen area, the lights the room and how well equipped the apartment was. The washing machine was broken which was a major issue as we were there for sport and it was raining. There was no dryer or heater which I found odd. However the property owner was very helpful by having a load of washing done for us.

Thank you Megan for taking the time to review our property. We remain very apologetic that the washing machine decided to go on the blink on such a rainy weekend but as you acknowledged we ensured your laundry was done with outside help at our expense. The bedroom is heated and the kitchen area is heavily insulated as part of the conversion from a historic railway shed to a new kitchen. The laundry area has both undercover and open air drying space. We are always contactable and aim to ensure our guests enjoy a comfortable stay and so set out to solve all issues to make this possible.

Thanks Vicki for your feedback. We really appreciate that you took the time to write. This is a unique apartment. A garage has been annexed to the apartment to create the open plan spacious kitchen/living area. The garage / shed was once a steam locomotive storage shed that has been relocated from a disused rail line deep in the mahogany forests up behind Grafton hence the high ceilings, massive original doors and the mahogany walls. beams and rafters! We do apologize for the 2 stiff door handles. We have our builder coming tomorrow as we finalize all the renovation work we’ve done to the apartment over the last 9 months, we’ll add the door handles to his list. We hope to see you again at Blue River Apartments - Wooli.

Relaxing seaside holiday

Pros: Pet friendly, view and verandah
Cons: Wifi
Wooli is a wonderful place to get away for a relaxing holiday, though don't expect a lot of excitement. The Admiral's Deck met all of our needs for three adults and two dogs. The verandah was large enough to spend most of our home time there and it had a beautiful outlook over the river. It was located across the road from the river and a 5 minute walk(1 block) to either the beach or club. Great to be able to enjoy a holiday with your pets and bring them inside as well as on the balcony. Verandah was fenced to contain dogs but yard is not fenced. We could not get any reception for our Vodafone mobiles in Wooli so I would suggest you use a Telstra sim.

Thanks Dean, We have WiFi installed now and we have completed the landscaping so the yards are all fenced with latched gates making them perfect for pets. Skippers now also has a weather proof shade sale over most of the large alfresco courtyard that boasts an new outdoor kitchen, dining and lounge area plus an outdoor shower room for washing all the sand and salt off before re-entering the outdoor living areas and the apartment itself. Worth re-visiting us to check it all out ! even if you checked out all the new pictures on our website! Best regards Rod

Misleading information

Pros: Not a hotel. No reception. Cleaner called around to collect money
Cons: Needs to be realistically priced
Location: Woolli is a small fishing village. Good coffee shop. Good fishing
This was advertised as a serviced apartment. No service at all. When we booked the cost was below $500. When we paid we had to pay $590 for three nights in off season time. The owners are renovating but this is not yet complete and we shouldn't have to pay extra to help them renovate. We have photos of very poor condition of lounge. Very disappointing overall. Was clean but no service. Only one roll of toilet paper. No soaps or basic tea, sugar or coffee. At $600 this at least should have been provided

Hi Phillip, I am sorry you feel this way about our apartments. The extra cost was for your 2 dogs who stayed as we have a $30 per stay dog cleaning fee for pets. We recently took over the apartments and have effected substantial changes already with new linen and towels etc, new bathrooms and beds etc. and new lounge sweats are on order. We feel that $195 per night for a 2 bedroom waterfront apartment in high summer is a fair price to pay for a serviced apartment. We do provide soaps, tea, sugar and an espresso coffee machine with refills so will check with our cleaners as to why these were not available. We could have sorted this with 1 phone call very quickly.

Comfy, clean unit close to beach & river

Pros: Clean, relaxed, loved the decks overlooking the river!
Cons: New couches or better couch covers to prevent having to sweep "bits" off floor daily would be good.
Location: Location is great, close to river & beaches - the bush walking & national parks awesome to explore. No coffee shops or grocery stores in Wooli tho.
We enjoyed our few nights stay in tranquil Wooli - beaches & river so clean & inviting! Gordon & staff very helpful & friendly - especially Olley & Roy!

Wonderful hosts.

Very obliging, gave us lots of laughs. Allowed us to park our motorbike in a safe area. We only stayed one night but it was nice and roomy with a full kitcheni and a nice verandah with seating overlooking the river and a bbq. Did have stairs to our accomodation but there were other places on the ground floor.

Thanks Peter, This property has now been fully renovated as you suggested. Gordon and Moreen sold to business to Cath and I 2 years ago now so these purpose built apartments have been brought into the 21st century and are now the trend setting place to stay in Wooli. We would love to see you back in Wooli and get your feedback on our work in turning the property around.
