We stayed here for 2 nights over the March 2017 long weekend in a large premium family room with a king bed and two singles. We would have preferred a two bedroom apartment but as they were all booked, we settled for the family room which turned out to be more than adequate. The room was spacious and came with...

It's alright for people without kids and having golf get away. We went with two kids and found it just OK. Normal resort rooms are smaller as compare to other Racv resorts. Facilities are there but can't cope with peak hour. Even morning breakfast has a cut down menu as compare to other RACV resorts.

This resort has everything that you could need. I recommend the 2 bedroom apartments. They are quiet and well appointed. Staff are also friendly and helpful. I have stayed here on 4 separate occasions and been happy each time.

This RACV resort is close to Melbourne, so getting there before the kids get grumpy is a definite plus. The check-in was very smooth and the room we got was a family room with extra sofa bed. There is a small kitchenette with microwave and toaster. Not really used since we have breakfast at the hotel. The facilities are good,...

We love RACV hotels are they are so child friendly. This one was just not quite as good as the others, as it had less facilities, and the pool was small. Service is good though and the room was lovely, and there's tons to do in the area. We did find that the reception staff were very vague about local...

Having checked in on a sunday arfternoon the welcome was friendly and a quick process.
