I booked through a company known as "Perfect Short Breaks" with a lady named Christina. A friend and I booked a small get away for 3 nights where we were very excited to relax. On our first night of stay, we were excited to enjoy the pool which we did. However when we came back to our room at around...

The Boathouse would have to be among the best apartment accommodation I’ve ever stayed in – it’s certainly the largest. Very clean & well furnished with well equipped kitchen; huge bathroom with spa bath; comfortable bedding; large internal laundry; large balcony; Foxtel on both living room & bedroom TV’s; DVD player (DVDs can be rented from reception) & free wifi....

We stayed here for 3 nights and found on the whole it was OK. Our apartment 105 on the ground floor looked out onto the pool which made for great access as long as you watched your step going from the apartment to the patio area. I kept tripping and eventually lost a toe nail !!! Way too high and...

Overlooked the pool which we found to be very refreshing. There was everything in the unit for self care and a beautiful spa for relaxation. Everything was clean and tidy, a lift to all rooms. Four days helped to wash away the stress of life. Top place to stay. Good food in the Clubs and close by, oysters, prawns and...

Room 110, is disgraceful, stained carpet, filthy lounge with sticky bits. We had to cover lounge with blankets to be able to sit on it. Reception informed from day one, and lady agreed and said it needed a spring clean. Walls, and kitchen equipment is dirty and mould in shower.

I might just say at the beginning that I have lived in Tea Gardens for 12 years. We have two weeks before we move into our new home. I have never stayed here or visited any one here, but I have always thought 'this' would be the place to stay in TG. Sadly it isn't! Our room has mould in...

Visited with family, 3 adults and 2 kids. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and well equipped so you can cook inside rather than have to trust the very limited variety of restaurants in the area. Pool area is excellent with a nice sandy patch for the kids to play with and of course the views...

This was our first time here but hopefully won't be our last. We were really pleased with the quality and size of our apartment which faced the river and had a huge undercover balcony with a large table and chairs as well as 2 long pool type lounges. The bedroom had an ensuite with a huge spa bath plus a...

Great location. Very clean and a very well run property. Walk to club, pub, wharf. Great pool and steam room. Easy access from highway and easy to get to a surf at Hawks Nest. This is the second time we have visited and will return. Ebony on the front desk does a great job and was very helpful with advice.
