3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

The room was good with a great view of the sunset. Choice of TV channels not good. The shower was very very noisy from the bedroom area. The steps and entrance to the room was very slippery. The staff on duty were excellent but just not enough of them. Which considering for the first weekend (long) was a bit hard to think trying to get punters back?

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Ideally located to visit pancake rocks and blowholes, as well as access to a beautiful beach. Incredible views, especially at sunset. Staff were very professional and pleasant. Restaurant has great food. Rooms are spacious and comfortable but are in need of some minor maintenance (e.g., locks on patio doors, loose door handles).
