“Fine for what we needed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here two nights, on initial presentation was a little uncertain as was the hotel was attached to a keno/games bar and was worried about the late Saturday night party goers walking past. Just didn't feel safe as door lock key system seemed a bit outdated and penatrable, and sign in room saying any stolen items from room my responsibility. No troubles however. We did have to move rooms as toilet didnt flush properly, phone not working, and with the storm over night room entrance was soaked, no reception open in evening and bar staff unable to assist. Second room next day the same as first with lack of issues. Clean, although wash the dishes and cutlery prior to using them, they were a bit gunky. All in all, was fine for what we needed, by no means is it a 4 star hotel, more of a motel. The 1 bedroom apartment handy, which is what attracted me. But the foxtel/austar is hit and miss, movie channels didnt work. Lack of reception I believe with aerial, also you have to pay for wifi, and there is little reception via mobile Internet. I would recommend, just be mindful not to expect 4 star services.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

Good position near the beach but a bit far from Mackay. Units have a laundry which is good. Kitchen had everything you would need. TV was smaller than my computer screen! Bed was fine and the shower had good pressure. I was staying for two nights but left after one. There is no internet there and you have to pay if you want to try. To get phone coverage I had to stand in the carpark. There is a hotel and bottle shop on the site. Food out of the restaurant was very nice approx $15 for what I had. One comment I would make is that the car park has no lighting, as a female on my own I didnt appreciate walking back from the restaurant to the room in the dark.

Room Tip: I chose down stairstairs, but the receptionist said the corner upstairs unit could get the interent...

First the positives - great location, across the road from the beach, near to a nature reserve and the room size was good, we liked the 2 rooms - bedroom and lounge, with good self contained facilities. And the verandah, although small was pleasant. The accommodation is next to the hotel where there is a bar and grill and a gaming area. But you don't need to worry about noise from here as the accommodation is well removed from the area.

But - the room air conditioners (not splits) are very noisy, the lights from the verandahs shine into the bedrooms, there was no TV in the bedroom and the TV was smaller than the average computer monitor.

The bathroom was OK, but attention to detail was lacking - no soap, only shampoo was provided on the first night, but soap appeared the next day. The place is beginning to show its age e.g. marked tiles and old paintwork, the air conditioners and the furnishings like curtains looked just a little tired. The pool looks in good condition, but the pool surrounds are sandy and the gardens look unkempt.

Comfortable enough but no frills now. OK for a night or 2 but no longer.

Do not stay in Room 26, I was unfortunate enough to have had this opportunity and the Balcony light lit the whole room up.

The Room was very spacious, Roomy and Clean. great value, there is no tv in the bedroom, only a small tv in the lounge.

It has an old noisy box A/C in both the lounge and Bedroom. no Split system.

When getting down to the dinning room at 7.55Pm I was told the kitchen closed at 8Pm, try getting food delivered and the only choice is pizza delivery due to it being in an isolated area.

Very nice beach across the road, nice pool, Nice Pub/Club near by but a short drive to town if you want anything.

;( No Gym close near by, Enjoy the beach and Park to work out. overall Good value

Room Tip: Do not stay in Room 26 or any room with a light on the balcony outside the Bedroom window. Ask for...

Booked this accommodation from home (NZ) before we left. We arrived after driving from Rockhampton on one of those hot days early October. We had booked a downstairs unit because it contained a washing machine and drier. We found the reception staff great and the unit was very clean, tidy and large. Washing power was with the washing machine. TV a little small for the size of the room.
This accommodation is in a dead end street right at the end, very quite and no noise from the pub in front. Continental breakfast was included. Beach just across the road, great place for a walk first thing in the morning after breakfast before hitting the road.
Great place to stay would recommend.

Room Tip: Downstairs units have washing machine and drier

We recently stayed at Seabreeze... when I booked, the deal was for continental breaky included (this was also stated in a holiday booklet supplied in the room) but on request when we got to the "hotel" my husband and I were told that the breaky wasn't included (Seabreeze need to update their info)... Also.. there is no mention of mini bar charges and after drinking (what we thought were complementary waters) we were charged $5 on departure. With regard to the room, the tv needs updating, it was tiny and the curtains in the main room need to be darker, as the light outside the room were too bright at night & it felt like daylight.
Other than that, the "hotel" is definitely in a lovely spot, right at the end of the road, walking distance to the beach and park. And the room was clean and neat.

Stayed for a few days around a family wedding. Service was competent, rooms were clean and prices about average. The location is great though, on a quiet dead end road right on the beach. The rooms are set well back from the pub which can get get lively but you dont get any noise in the rooms. The food in the bar is great, freshly cooked, huge portions at good prices. Nothing too flash, just simple food done well (can definitely vouch for the steak sandwich). Was quite disappointed to have to pay for wifi when paying $140 night for a room! You get free wifi in McDonalds but not here! Is not unusual in Australia though and shows how far it lags behind other parts of the world in some ways. (I am an Aussie, just in case anyone gets offended).
