I booked this and only read the reviews after- it sounded scary! Nearly cancelled to avoid a catastrophy. (It was a birthday surprise for my boyfriend, so wanted something really nice) Prepared for the worst, we got there, and it was actually very nice. The buildings are a bit basic, but clean and comfortable, we could even make good use of the little kitchen. The best part was the view, overlooking the garden and the sea. We could walk straight down to beach. The owners were very friendly and didn't say a word when we checked out at 12 instead of 10!
I would recommend it for a quiet weekend stay for couples or families and a good base to explore the East Coast; not so much for backpackers travelling without a car or if you're looking for a lively place. There's not much around in terms of restaurants or entertainment, the nearest Coles is in St Helens. Just relax and enjoy! (oh and avoid the resort across the road. Looked like a very run-down old "holiday factory" , evoking childhood memories of good old communist Eastern Europe...)
go for the seaview rooms! (not the garden view, that might look on the driveway)
