Spent 2 nights there at $100 a night. For such a close location to the Airlie centre, its great value.
Good sea views
A 2 minute walk from the town centre
The hotel-style room was clean, a little dated for some perhaps
Reception was friendly and helpful
It is on a hill, so be prepared for a hike back from town.
A lot of the rooms have stairs for access
As of August 2008, a marina is being constructed which is creating a lot of noise on the eastern end of Airlie Beach during daylight hours. I think completion is around the end of 08.
Try and get a room 46 or below if you want to minimise the hill a little, and ask for one of the rooms with stair-free access(there about 12 of these). There is only 1 undercover car park per unit.
Would I return? Yes.More
