Hi Wilkdig, Thank you for your review. We love that we are away from all the noise from town, however agree that there are a few too many roundabouts! Whilst the Resort rooms are lovely the ungraded rooms do allow more space and facilities for an extended stay. I'm sure you will be pleased with these on your next visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed this resort. I was a little sceptical as it seemed to be located quite a way away from anywhere but we were delighted once we got there. The room had a lovely view over the pool and the river and was spacious. There was an easy drop off point at the lift in the carpark. Once we...

The rooms are laid out in a functional and spacious way. Staff is friendly and helpful. Underground free parking. Very quiet. Highly recommended for a peaceful few days away, with an onsite restaurant delivering quality food.

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay here. Being beach bums that love ocean views, we thought we might get bored, but we had a huge balcony with sun from sunrise to sunset (so ask for North facing rooms if you can), and even though it wasn't a high floor (level 4) we would be more than happy with the...

Very disappointed with the room. It smelt and was dirty. And because they didn't do the bookings correctly we had to change rooms half way through our stay. The restaurant wasn't open at all while we were there. The pool was nice.

Hi BrisbaneGirl81, Thank you for your review.
