Reviewed 4 April 2014

Visiting Airlie then this is a superb slice of paradise! Rooms extremely clean, A spacious shower to die for, balconies that over look enticing and relaxing water views , 2 refreshing pools joined by a stone cobble creek in between with a colonial wood bridge that enters into a naturally designed relaxing restaurant setting! Great food, professional service and most of all an extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere! A nice slice of paradise in Airlie!!! Certainly will return!!!

Stayed for two nights, good location just outside of Airlie beach, it takes about 15 minutes to walk into town. Rooms lovely and clean, staff really helpful on reception. Buffet breakfast good but basic. Nice pool area and views from room. Would stay here again.

All the previous comments mentioned on here are mostly correct:
It’s an older style motel high on a hill among newer high-rise buildings but I think it’s better than the newer units. When the current owners renovated, they spared no expense to make sure it is a modern property and it compares very well with other units in a similar price range. It has a bright airy tropical decor and it’s very uplifting, and relaxing at the same time.
The breakfast is great and excellent value. The staff do all that they can do, to make your stay a success... We had a family get-together here and had wonderful stay. Our rooms had a good view over the marina, and we loved the ambiance of the dining room, surrounded by the palms and the little stream that linked the two pools.
In fact we had stayed here many years ago when our children were young, so it was lovely to experience it with my grandchildren... I loved the pools all those years ago and they are still lovely slate and rock landscaped pools.
Thank you to all the staff that we did meet: Pheobe, Bernie and the ladies who clean the rooms and the dining room. We hope to return.

This was the 1st place we stayed on our road trip down from Cairns to Sydney and was very pleased with our choice. The room was a nice size with a view over the front gardens & pool. The staff were very friendly and helpfull when ever we spoke to them.
