It's a budget hotel with all the (non) frills that entails. However, you do have to wait a bit to get served at the pub counter and then while the staff go and find the person who can give you a key. The room was adequate enough and is a room with a shower. Yet, the bedside table was just...

This hotel had a well deserved total refurb a number of years ago. We dine there at least once every couple of weeks as its local, the meals are mostly good. They have a large turnaround in staff and it's not often you see the same face twice. The meals are above average prices. Not sure about the hotel rooms...

Not sure where to start. Let's start with the positives - room wise, it's clean, restaurant wise, it tasted good. Now the negatives: slow, unfriendly staff who could not be bothered, we had to order at two different spots, grab our own cutlery because nobody thought we would need some apparently, ended up grabbing our own serviettes too and were...

This has been an iconic hotel in Nerang for as long as I can remember. I have not stayed at the motel but have visited the bistro/lounge bar on numerous occasions. On this visit the staff were extremely friendly & went out of their way to ensure our needs were met. The food has always been tasty & restaurant quality...

We booked this accommodation to attend night match at Metricon Stadium, only a couple of minutes drive from Hotel. Whilst accommodation is old and very basic, it was extremely comfortable. The Hotel has fantastic meals, and the staff were just so nice, helpful and accommodating in every way, from hotel reception through to dining lounge bar staff. The Hotel is...

I was very impressed. We arrived a few hours before our check in time and they let us into the room early. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful. Going into the room the smell of bleach etc as soon as you opened the door was not strong but you could tell the room had just been cleaned. The beds...

Dined tonight wirh 2 dozen family and friends-never again! The kids play area so noisy we had difficulty communicating. I ordered the Dukka Crusted Lamb, such a small portion i thought it must have been an entree! The final straw was being asked for $20-80 for a red wine and a beer-it would have cost less getting mugged in their...

We booked this hotel because of it's convenient location as we were only there for a night. friends of ours had stayed before and said it was good. Two rooms were booked for the group and both were very unclean with rust stains in the bath, clogged shower drains because of the grey muck around the drain, hair in the...

I made a request a week earlier for an early check in, they never replied so I called the day before and they were so rude to me and before I could finish what I was saying I got hung up on! When we got there at 12pm, we were told that we couldn't check in until 2, but we...
