“very very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2008

We stayed 4 nights at waterfront and the hotel is excellent. It was our first time to Airlie Beach and the guys at the hotel really looked after us, showed us the places to go, drove us into town when it was raining even introduced us to some of the guests who we are now friends with. The hotel has a great pool area and the rooms are large and really modern, they have a big fridge so staying a few days you have space for you own gear. The service is very good here, they clean the room every day and the guys seems to be always ready to help if you need it. The guys booked us on camira which went to Whitehaven beach, an amazing beach on one of the islands were the sand is pure white and the water so clear you can see the bottom, really great day out. We highly reccomend this hotel, we have told all our friends about it. It is top notch.

We have just come back form the best Christmas ever even though the hotel is smaller we felt like we were the only people in Airlie Beach. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were fantastic - always willing to help. It was lovely to wake up to the beautiful view and it was great to be able to walk only a few minutes to the beach. We had many hours of just strolling around but found comfort coming back to our room. The prices are great for what you get. Theres nothing like this in Brisbane - We love it up there as this is the first time we have been to Airlie Beach and we will go back for more. This is the best experience I have had at a hotel for a long time.

  • Liked — The rooms were beatiful, the price was great and the staff were excellent
  • Disliked — I think I liked everything - it was fantastic

What can i say even though the weather was not its best when we were up there but the owners managed to help us make the best out of our holidays from recommending activities to bringing us board games just incase we needed them... I will have to say we will miss them...

Thanks Guys
Hope you had a good new year....

We stayed in one of the luxury spa apartments for 9 days, it was phenomenal. The service was beyond anything I have experienced previously, they are always on call and prepared to go out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable and convenient. The set up was very modern and clean, the pool is great, views are good and location very close to the city centre.
Will definitely be staying there next time we visit :)

This little hotel is the best kept secret in Airlie Beach. The rooms are stunning and the pool a great place to relax. It is very close to Airlie Beach so going to town is easy for dinner etc. We stayed for our honeymoon in a spa apartment the spa is outside on the balcony of the room and they surprised us with some champagne and chocolates when we arrived. It is only a small hotel but this means you have the whole place to yourself just what we needed. The price was amazing and we hope to come back soon. If you want a great place in Airlie I rank it 10 out of 10
