Bannisters has it all - great views, luxury accommodation, two wonderful restaurants and an ambience rare in resorts. It is an absolute pleasure to stay there and is an experience hardly found anywhere else that I have travelled to anywhere in the world. We will certainly be returning.

What a great South Coast hideaway. Felt a million miles away. Very comfortable rooms, lovely staff, beautiful, peaceful location with amazing views. Didn't get time to try the spa, but the overflow pool area with pizza bar is fantastic and with Rick Stein's restaurant in the building it's all class! Loved!!

My 60th birthday was on a Monday and I thought - nothing is going to opened where we live. We had driven past Bannisters by the Sea last November on our way from Narooma and it looked very nice. I asked my husband if he would take me there for two nights so that I could celebrate my birthday in...

Looks like something from the 79's just painted! Painted bricks. For the price I wasn't very impressed. View is great and good exceptional but way too pricey for the quality of the building. Bathroom was also small and dated

We headed to Mollymook for a birthday/wedding anniversary celebration just for a few relaxing days away. When booking online there was apparently an error and the room we wanted was booked so we got upgraded to an amazing room, The Narrawallee suite, which was fantastic! It had 2 balconies with views of everything. The pool was beautiful looking over the...

Revisited these two lovely hotels over the new year period. As always amazing food, wonderful service, lots of fun to be had with dancing on New Years Eve. Started with drinks at the pool bar, great vibes here with a listen to Roddy Reason. Followed by a trip down the road to The Pavilion for a serious session of dancing...

Firstly, the staff/service was excellent. Stayed 2 nights in a jacuzzi room (16) which was located ground level next to the spa. Probably not the best located room as it felt out of the way and the outlook was limited. Couple of small flaws with the room; the shower has a curtain only so water runs all over the bathroom...

Had the most amazing time at Bannisters by the Sea. Rooms were great and the beds were comfy. Good breakfast selection too. Eggs how you like them. Loved Rick Steins restaurant. Can't wait to go again.

Had a great 3 night stay in 'The Pinnacle' 2 bed apartment, it was enormous with a stunning master suite including outdoor shower overlooking the ocean. I agree with some other reviewers that the photos do not do this room justice- its really spectacular and far exceeded my expectations. Without the 'wow' factor of this very special apartment the general...
