Travelling solo and used to luxury I was severely disappointed. Cabins were clean however I had to kill a few nice sized cochroaches. As i have a phobia with them i slept with the light on and slept uneasy and spoilt my "relaxing stay" Aircon is set to turn off every four hours and I think the price u pay...

Thanks so much for your feedback. As a 3.5 star and self contained property, we certainly don't aim for luxury, and we do price it at this level too. There are no other properties of a higher star rating that are less expensive or the same price as us. Perhaps it is different if you have travelled in other parts...

Very friendly and helpful staff on arrival. Very clean and well fitted out. Bed comfortable. Units set so that other guests not intrusive. Well thought out green principals throughout. Very peaceful surrounds. Only downside if more than two adults, climbing ladder to upper bedroom would be a challenge if not young and fit.. However, alternative sofa bed in lounge area.

Stayed in a family villa. Air conditioning too small for the area and not suitable for QLD climate made the night stay very uncomfortable. Stairs to loft were dangerous and not to building requlations. Kids beds in loft, were trundle beds and limited head room. Will not be return

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry that your stay was so disappointing that you wont come back to stay with us! The air-conditioners have struggled, our summers are not what they used to be that is for sure. Think they said this is the hottest summer on record for our area. However we have implemented policy that replacement Air Conditioners will...

This little restaurant is out of the way but the staff are so welcoming, the food is amazing and I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a good meal...forget chicken schnitzel and reef and beef with two prawns on it....this is REALLY good food.

Consitantly good. Activities for the kids on holidays and decent well laid out cabins. We are so glad we didnt choose an apartment in a high rise as kellys resort has activities for the kids during school holidays, very big bonus. Grounds are well kept and cabins are really fun for the kids with the loft.

“Pack another mat for the front door because the floor tiles are white. Take a drive to Elliot Heads for a lovely day out. Bikes are perfect for the kids to ride around the resort and around Kelly's Beach. Have a box of chips and gravy at the inlet food van. Book into laser tag at the resort - available 3 nights a week and the kids Love it.”
