Great spot to walk around town from. Nice little garden. Small but clean rooms. Easy parking. Very expensive for what you get. Very nice staff.
Plenty of room. Comfy couches Stove ignition didn’t work for gas stove No biggie able to work around it
Nice views and accommodation nice and clean, but there were lots of mosquitos in the house.
Loved the fantastic location, amazing views, huge balcony & direct beach access. Very cool 70s vibe in the living room - with incredible expansive ocean & beach views. Disappointed with the very poor sound insulation from the downstairs separate rental, and by some small (very easily fixed things) ...
Sea Lit (Ocean Drive, Port Fairy) offers a breathtaking piece of paradise with the Southern Ocean at your front door. The house has been designed with many, many features and comforts accommodating up to 10 guests and yet no one gets in anyone's way. The house is well stocked, meticulously clean ...
Great Location. Allergy sufferers beware. Lovely little house with perfect backyard. Great comfortable beds plenty of them! could have been cleaner.
Very efficient and pleasant stay despite the bad weather. Paradise Cove is ideally situated to watch the weather cross East Beach and is reasonably close to the town. Clean and well appointed with 3 bathrooms and lots of comfortable chairs. Recommended.
Excellent position, first class order, excellent equipment, excellent entertainment including reading matter, no internet.
Great little property with all you need for a getaway. Comfortable and good location near shops. Property was well maintained and clean throughout.
Very nicely renovated cottage in excellent location close to centre of Port Fairy. Effectively two bathrooms, three bedrooms and very accommodating living area. On the down side there is no air conditioning, a surprising omission given the price bracket they are charging, also no wifi which again ...
This property is old and very dated. It had a old dirty smell immediately upon entry. We had to buy air fresheners to help remove the odour. Had to clean cobwebs from the cottage and kill numerous spiders throughout our stay, really great when you have kids and its Christmas and the booking service ...
All nesseccary items expected from a good quality motel, only item of concern was a plumbing malfunction that we left a note about and towells & bath mats but no hand towells!
Fantastic hosts, very friendly and helpful and room very clean and well equiped. Lived up to its name, we slept very well. Highly recommend.
Spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Considerate staff give two cards so the refrigerator would stay on when we went out.
It was okay. The electrical plugs weren't working at first, but a quick call go reception and it was fixed.
It was very central to the town and allowed us to be able to walk around Albany. Did not have a microwave.
Good location. People are very friendly. The carpark is in need of some resurfacing - especially in winter, when it's wet.
Well appointed, comfortable and clean. Quiet area with a short walk to the beach. Will stay here again and encourage my friends, family and colleagues to also.
Good facilities no restaurant availability due to renovations good location
We loved the location, the beautiful peppermint tree lined street, close to Middleton Beach, plenty of kitchen equipment to choose from, comfy beds and pillows, additional blankets great, small cosy and friendly holiday units. Loved our stay.
Liked the view from the balcony,I think a microwave would have been useful.Had fun in the spa bath.Enjoyed the Fox Tell
Loved the apartment layout & excellent service from all staff.
Noise from Friday night band was just acceptable. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Food absolutely stunning. In all a pleasant experience and great value for money.
We arrived after 5:30 so Colette rang us to explain which room we were in and where the key was. The heater had also been turned on so we were greeted by a wonderfully warm room on arrival. The room itself is well laid out with a small kitchen, divided lounge & bedroom. There is also parking available. ...
The location was stunning & the Destiny unit comfortable, but the bed was awful & there was some mattress topper to try & make it more comfortable, but it was smaller than the bed. The 3 seater lounge was also broken, so very uncomfortable to sit on. There was a lovely pot belly fire, but this was ...
Lot of spider web / kettle and toaster not really clean, same for the cup and spoon ? Otherwise all good
Property was modern and spotlessly clean. Central location meant we could walk to cafes and bars easily. Quality bedding. Flat 3 on the ground floor had a nice private courtyard but was a little dark inside.
Stay for 1 week in one of the Chalets ( Dec 26th - Jan 1st). The Chalet has a very nice space, queen main bedroom and one small bedroom with two bunkers. Very nice place to stay with the family, all good maintenance, accessible to the Albany town and attractions and very handy petrol station and ...
Great place for a family of four (maximum). My boys had lots of fun playing on the basketball court and with billiards and table tennis area. Close to shopping centre and other attractions around town.
Extremely tidy and well maintained park. Chalet was very tidy and clean also. Beautiful location will definitely be back in the summer months at some stage in the future.
Staff friendly. the room was nice and neat , clean and very roomy with all you need in the well equipped kitchen. Great sized shower.
pleased with 2 brm cottage even though fairly old. enjoyed our stay. would recommend. thankyou
Caretakers made advance communication Met on arrival and had meaningful discussion Room was neat, clean and tidy Good value for money
A very quaint and charming cottage situated in a great location, very close to the centre of town.
Felt like home- happy week- definitely recommend for comfortable stay - easy walk to town - XCLNT Deborah ☃️
2 night stay in a well equipped unit with everything you need for a short stay. Fantastic view from the private balcony overlooking the river- nice in the morning for a coffee- good in the afternoon for a wine. Good sized bathroom, well equipped kitchen. Close to town if you want to walk in for dinner ...
We had a great stay here. The cabin was very child friendly (no sharp edges or knick knacks!) and the owner was very kind taking us to see the cows. We’ll definitely be back again.
The room was basic but effective. The long lump in the carpark asphalt wasn't so good for the car. The grub in the pub was good and the waitstaff very friendly.
Excellent close access to city center and main streets. Adequate parking close to the room. Plenty of eating areas within short walk to the motel.
A little out of town but a good room, parking right out front of room. Bed not very comfortable but otherwise a great stopover. Loved the breakfast basket in our room on arrival.
Friendly welcoming staff, thank you Barbara and Tayla. Room was comfortable with ocean views. Dinner at the restaurant was great.
Room was clean and close to all facilities. Have stayed at Highway One on quite a few occasions, and have found staff and facilities excellent. Very friendly staff
Door on bathroom broken, shower head sprayed out, rubbish under beds. Other than that fairly clean and comfortable!
Friendly helpful staff, huge room, and excellent continental breakfast included in price of room
The location is very good, central to the town centre and secure. The apartment is well laid out, spacious, clean and good value for money.
Room was very tidy. Very quiet. Staff at check in and daily clean were very friendly and helpful.
Neat and clean, room was decent size. Did not like how the water kept going hot and cold. If they had a decent shower then less water waistage. Other than that cannot fault it
Owner operator was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The motel is in the process of upgrading but everything is lovely and clean and functional. Would recommend it to anyone.
Good facilities. Cabin clean, functional and most importantly, comfortable bed.
Easy to find nice and quiet and clean and tidy . Large room with an efficient heating system
The property was secluded and out of the way for a quiet peaceful weekend, wish we had more time the to enjoy that. The cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Only fault (not the owners fault) if using Google Maps to find it use the property name and not the addressd, about 5km ...
Great location on the foreshore, our children loved the playground. Old but clean unit, cost of $165 seemed a bit expensive for the condition of unit but it did cater for our needs
While it may be a bit difficult to find Endilloe as it is on the outskirts of Quorn, it is a great place to stay for 2 couples or for a whole family. The place is excellently maintained, and it has everything you might want for your stay. We highly recommend it.
wifi is non-existent. and it s was difficult to locate the reception. otherwise, the place is not too bad for a night stay.
The secure gate was always unlocked, I never saw any staff. I didn't feel safe. The bathroom was dirty, the sheets were dirty.
Nice, clean hotel; not noisy; food and drink close by. Would like a better selection for big breakfast.
Great room for our stopover. A little out of town though so need a car. Parking at door. Room renovated and decorated well.
Friendly helpful staff, good bed, great shower and a nice quiet heater (It was cold the night I was there)
Everything is sweet but the bathroom sink could do with a bit of a fix. It was damaged and chipped and really needed a face lift
Basin in main room not the bathroom, light above sink not working, bathroom leaked a little onto the carpet. Room nice and clean with new bedding and fridge. Nice quiet location close to the facility I was there for. Hallways are a little noisy but overall well worth the budget price.
Good size and with a good size couch and great tv channels
Very spacious rooms, really clean . Plenty of parking spaces, very pleasant check in staff
It's age while a positive can also be a negative. Decor is rather worn, especially carpet on stairs. Staff were good, room was good size and had most amenities.
A comfortable stay with a very warm welcome. Well equipped, clean apartment but it did not live up to the online pictures. Easy drive into central Bendigo.
Excellent hosts, spotless and well maintained . Convenient parking and elevator or stair access to room.
Property is maintained clean and have excellent customer service. The property is bit old and may need better bath and toilet fittings
Comfortable rooms, nice air conditioning and electric blankets Quiet location, yet convenient Great value
The staff were extremely helpful from checking in ( where we had a problem with the booking) the cleanliness of the room, which was spacious, the bed was really comfortable and breakfast was great. We were made to feel very welcome.
Barclay On View is very central to many attractions in Bendigo - within easy walking distance. The bed was good; water and shower were hot; the room was clean; the Continental Breakfast was OK. I thought that the price of the room was a tad on the expensive side however we paid more for the location ...
The property was well maintained & clean. Was in perfect location, not too far from anything. I would stay there again for a night or two. Any longer, and I would have liked more self contained facilities.
The room was light with modern decor. It was great to have the option of using the bbq area for dinners. We received complimentary milk when needed and free use of the laundry. The location across the park was awesome for my morning walks. Finally the staff were friendly and helpful.
Friendly and efficient check-in, spotlessly clean room, great value!! Definitely be staying here when I’m Bendigo again.
Two separate rooms. Large kitchen. Easy parking. Family dining table.
I like how clean and modern it looked inside and the well set out kitchen, bedding and bathroom!
I know the property was not properly finished but there was not enough power points as all of them were taken and were only single not double power points one room never had any at all
Friendly staff. Room was clean, bed was huge (which was amazing) and loved the cute little towel animal. Would definitely stay here again
Reasonably priced very clean beautifully comfortable bed The Decor is a little tired but clean just the same
We loved how quiet it was, the pool area is so peaceful and relaxing. Of course it's different in summer. Our accommodation was perfect.
My wife and I really recommend this property to anyone who is visiting Taree. The room was spacious and the quality was excellent. We had room number 18 and for us, our neighbors were great. Unlike some motels and hotels where banging walls and squeaky bed springs can be heard over screams. Thankyou ...
Our cabin was beautifully furnished and appeared to be brand new. The park was quiet and clean, right on the beautiful waterfront. Facilities were fantastic, particularly the pump track.
Staff were very friendly. Property well appointed and tidy. Close to quaint shops and beautiful scenery
All Seasons Country Lodge is on the way in on the south side of Tamworth - it is on the highway, but noise wasn't too loud. It had most of what was needed, including a microwave, plates and cutlery.
Parking very convenient, breakfast service good generous amount of food, well kept outside and pretty gardens, overall excellent 😊
Accomodation was comfortable & clean. Would return if in area again
Lakeside beautiful and peaceful. Friendly staff and nice pool and small park for children.
Close to the beach and easy to find and park. Very nice helpful people on front desk reception. Very comfortable and spacious apartment
We got a 2br deluxe cabin, it was amazing, I can’t wait for our next holiday I hope we get same cabin again so clean, comfortable. Just perfect to our needs and the park is great lots for the kids to do
Good location, neat and tidy. Needs ceiling fans or windows that open to let some fresh air in the second story rooms.
One of the best caravan parks we’ve been to. So much for the kids to do even during winter. The indoor play centre, indoor pool, putt putt golf, tennis, basket ball, jumping pilllow, games room, train rides and daily activities meant the kids didn’t want to leave the park. We finally dragged them ...
Lovely environment; terrific restaurant. Our cabin was pleasant, if not entirely modern. It was clean and comfortable.
The room was inviting and the bed and bathroom were great. I did find some loose tiling in the main area when walking around. The sink leaked in the bathroom. Toilet lid was also loose. No screen door.
The confirmation letter the I was sent, had a very negative tone to it. It had lots of stuff about if you do the wrong thing we will charge you etc. almost assuming that’s what everyone is planning to do. Not sure if they have had a lot of people come and do the wrong thing, but it wasn’t very welcoming. ...
The staff very helpful.The room was great.It was exactly what we needed for the weekend.Would definitely book again
Great place to stay Lovely people very friendly would go back
Motel is slightly 'tired' looking but location was perfect to my needs and the room was very clean and the staff were very lovely and friendly!
Staff were friendly, nice quiet location, great price, room and amenities were very clean. Not much more to say besides I will be back and highly recommend The Hilltops Retreat Motor Inn!
Me and my family stayed two nights at Econo Lodge during the weekend 26th and 27th April 2019. This is the best Motel I have stayed so far. Easy access to restaurants, banks,etc. Staff are great, good hospitality. Room is extremely clean, tidy and very spacious. We got extra beds for kids. Bed linen ...
The hotel is situated perfectly in town, but off the main drag so there isn't too much noise from traffic. I stayed in winter and there was a good heater for the room and extra blankets in case. There was milk in a little jug in the fridge which I loved because it saves on plastic. The continental ...
Room is small, compact, but well appointed. Closed to Newell Highway but traffic not so busy as to disturb sleep.
Nice friendly and welcoming owners, rooms modern and clean, air conditioning added to the comfort level over a couple of very hot days.
Everything was fine. Not fancy, but everything that you need and very comfortable.
Nice and quiet rural prporty. The owner went above and beyond for us! Fantastic breakfast! Thank you !
The food was excellent and the staff reception was great. The staff who took our dinner order needs to work on her demeanour but the waitress who delivered the meal was great. The room was soundproof. We were right above the main bar and didn’t hear a thing.
We were pleasantly surprised at this house. It was clean and much better value than a similarly priced hotel room. Will definitely stay here again.
What’s beautiful place to stay, it was fantastic. Friendly service and beautiful decor too. We had such a wonderful stay at Grenfell Hall B&B
Unfortunately I stayed on Sunday night so the pub was closed but there’s still plenty of dinnelng options around the corner in the main street
I was called before checkin and told that the heater had been turned on and where we we could find our key as we were arriving late. Very thoughtful staff and room was perfect.
Very friendly and welcoming staff, clean and large apartment, will come again
I t was quiet. no intrusive away from main stream Chaos. Breakfast good. not so sure on dinner . not horrible , ok
Great location and amazing view. All was jyst as described and the staff were helpful and friendly.
The Wi-Fi was unfortunately down for the first four nights, and then when it came back on it was only usable from upstairs and not downstairs, so that was disappointing, but the staff were super friendly, and very helpful in suggesting places to go/see etc, especially Eboni and Dan.
