“Conference Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The rooms and conference facilities were more than adequate. The view over the golf course and water ways was superb. The breakfast buffet was good, but the other food in general was average. The staff attended to our every need.

Stayed September 2013, travelled on business

The building itself is magnificent shining in the sun - a bit like one of those dubai skyscrapers. Very extravagant.

The hotel was full when we were there but this was not a problem. I think it actually helped create a splendiferous energy around the place.

I was very pleasantly surprised about the reasonability of the rates. Good clean rooms at a fair(way) price tag!

Great place if you want piece and quiet. We went over peak school holidays and hardly anyone was there ... free reign of the hotel! Breakfast in the hotel was great, kids ate free. If you want a great lunch, visit the golf club next door, meals are huge.

We recently stayed here for one night only & wished we had been able to stay longer...we found all staff to be friendly & helpful...we had a deluxe spa suite which was great,although unfortunately didn't have a view from our balcony was still a great size with everything we needed including a kitchenette & of course the spa...we had a buffet breakfast included in our deal which was delicious...unfortunately we had no time to use the pool but it looked very inviting,the resort also offers a day spa & hairdresser& of course you can play a round of golf...we will most definitely stay here next time we are in caloundra!!

Stayed here for 2 nights and would recommend this property if you have a car. It is definitely out of the way, but it is excellent value and the staff are awesome. Sabina took care of every inquiry I had. The pool was great and very large. The rooms were large and very comfortable.

Stayed here 4 times to date.

Under new management again.

Room this time, average. Bed was very uncomfortable. Never been so glad to return to our own bed after 2 days here. Both of us sore necks & backs.

Lovely building & premises.

Breakfast nice.

Reception staff, young lady, very nice.

Nothing wrong with the stay, wasn't anything overly special. Went for our anniversary & would not say it was anything spectacular, staying here.

Unfortunately this place has gone down hill recently. Rude incompetent reception and bar staff. Still a lovely location but I won't come back. Big shame :-( Breakfasts used to be great, now average. Had to wait nearly an hour for lunch to arrive - for three deep fried bar snacks - unacceptable. We had dinner one night, the food was lovely, but we weren't allowed a coffee as the machine was being cleaned, obviously the staff wanted to go home.
