“Didn't want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Perfect views, apartment and close to everything. Loved the pool and settings. Enjoyed greatly. Spacious couldn't not recommend staying there enough. Can't wait to get back. Great for family and couples. Would like to see more of what there is to eat in the area too.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Recently stayed 4 nights over the new years period with a group of friends. After an 8 hour drive we arrived to check in at around 2:15pm and were told our room was not ready. Understandable this time of year is pretty hectic but would have appreciated a phone call to let us know ahead of time, especially after an 8 hour drive. We stayed in the 2 bedroom penthouse, plenty of space, awesome balcony and amazing views. Unfortunately there is no housekeeping service which was a bit of pain as we ran out of toilet paper and dishwasher powder after 3 days. We were charged $5 each for 2 extra clean towels and reception seemed to be closed everytime we went down to request more. In saying that the owners were very relaxed, easy going and tolerable of our noise allowing us to have a great new years holiday. One more thing – it’s a killer hill to walk up at 4am after a night out! Would happily stay again.

We arrived by train at 4am and were dreading the thought of sitting in the train station until cafes opened and then sitting there until check in. We called ahead and they said they would allow us to check in at 4am! When we arrived, we called the number they gave us and a lovely, albeit very sleepy man came out and checked us in! He had clearly gotten out of bed just to let us in. I'm afraid I don't know his name. I was half asleep and didn't think to ask. But this was really above and beyond what anyone could ask for service.

I fell asleep as soon as I got to the room and it wasn't until I awoke that I took a look around. We had a massive, 2 bedroom apartment with all of the amenities. A lovely large balcony with an amazing view over Airlie Beach and the ocean.

We only stayed the one night, but I think it would be a great place to stay with friends for a longer period having the kitchen and all. There are laundry facilities, two bathrooms, a lovely big bath tub and a massive tv (which took us a bit to figure out, but we got there in the end).

The hotel has a gorgeous pool that was perfect for the sweltering afternoons.

The one drawback of this hotel is that it is up a fairly steep hill. This may be nothing for young, fit people who are used to the heat, but I can say it nearly knocked me out. And since we were staying and planning to buy groceries, we had to walk down to Airlie beach for the restaurants.

But it is being on a hill that give it the amazing views.

Overall, I have nothing but wonderful sentiment for this place for the service alone!

Just stayed two nights. Well presented apartment with great views. Located just back from "Strip" at Airlie. Short walk to get there and only $6 cab fare home, or bus.
Previous comments about amenities we found incorrect.
A complete fully equipped apartment, including cleaning products if required.
Reception Caz very helpful and Horace good fun.
The completely secured under cover car parking also a great bonus.
We will stay again!!!!

Room Tip: Ask Horace for best type of room to suit you.

great views, clean rooms ,spacious only a short distance to the cbd. the apartment had every item needed for an extended stay, secured parking was a good feature. there was no one to meet us at the service counter when we arrived but a quick call on the after hours phone soon got us checked in.
