We spend one night of our honeymoon here and can definitely recommend this hotel. Nice clean and spacious rooms, very friendly staff and even walking distance to the city centre. Washing facilities are there and even two pools. Breakfast is included but really basic.

Thank you for your comments which are appreciated. They assist us in improving our services and standards to guests. Our breakfasts are continental and depend on what fruits are in season in the tropics

There is an airport on Hamilton Island. Looks an interesting runway, as the plane lands very near the water. We got the ferry out from Airlie, took over an hour, very pretty, lots of islands along the way.
