As they say "every room with a view"; and although it's not always essential to have one, in this place it was great to overlook the marina, and the pool etc. (from both the balcony and within) rather than just a car park or adjacent nondescript building.
Another Wotif mystery room, this was far and away the best I struck. The bathroom had a spa bath (very nice soak after a wet windy day at Fraser Island), and one could see through the bedroom to the view from within it (privacy being afforded by a venetian blind when required).
The room itself is not very large, and had there been two of us with big suitcases it may have seemed crammed, but there was space in which to unpack, so one didn't have to leave the suitcases open, if that were a possible problem. I've certainly been in smaller rooms, and this did have a small table and chairs that could be moved if you got really stuck for space.
Too wet and windy (edge of a tropical cyclone was lashing the region) to enjoy the pool, but the nearby board walk afforded a bit of exercise between showers.
I dined in the restaurant, availing myself of two entrees, and found them both delicious and beautifully presented. I'd looked at all the menus of all the eating houses nearby and opted for it, and was not disappointed.
Nice ending to a trip.
