2 night stay after being caught up in Airlie Beach during Cyclone Debbie. We booked a family room for the four of us last minute after being sent to Townsville. Room was basic but clean. Receptionist was absolutely lovely, can not rate her enough. Let us check out late due to our late flight despite the option being unavailable. Great...

We had a 2 bedroom room. Room could have benefited from an airing before we arrived was hot and stuffy. Everything was clean. Kitchenette was minuscule but I guess did the job. Large bathroom. Location is certainly good although for $230 a night considerably dearer than ocean breeze down the road with undercover parking and a more modern layout. Probably...

The location is great and the bed/linen are comfortable. Easy parking and free wifi are appreciated. The rooms themselves and especially the bathrooms really need to be renovated. The air conditioning unit (like the bathrooms) is very old and thus extremely loud! Good luck sleeping when it is on.

We had room at the front with a sea view but the room was badly insulated with wooden slates in place of what had been a window. Consequently we got noise from the road and noise from the pool which was just below our window. When we arrived the toilet seat was broken and one of the windows had warped...

I stayed over for one night as was attending an Expo in Townsville. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a ground floor room next to the swimming pool with a view across to the ocean. It was very convenient and easy to find somewhere safe to park my car. There was a fish and chip shop across...

Had prevously booked through Booking.com and the owner said cancel that booking and ring me for a better discount. Turns out i should have stayed with Booking.com as got charged more going...

It really needs a renovation. Rooms are very old and when someone takes a shower all the neighbours can hear it since the water is so loud. Housekeeping doesn't really do anything during the cleaning. They just empty the bin and make the linen.

We booked our room direct with Linda in July, she was very helpful. Our stay was 14-21 December 2015. The room we selected Premium Ocean View Suite (upstairs) was overlooking the ocean and sea baths, with a balcony. Lovely ocean breezes. We stayed in that room for 6 nights, it had all that was required for a comfortable stay, including...

Excellent service, booking had been booked incorrectly by agency. Staff sorted this out fairly quickly and upgraded our room to a spa room. Spacious , views over the Strand. A little noisy at night being roadside.
