After traveling from Tweed to Bundaberg and back over six weeks, with 10 different stops, this was by far the best experience I enjoyed. To the extent, I overstayed my visit by 2 nights. To get more rest and recharge and invite my family to catch up with me there.
My first thoughts was it was on the expensive side, then I saw my room/apartment, and for what I paid for that, I was very happy. The rooms have just been renovated and the bedding was just so deadly to the body, to the point of laying down for a quick nap resulted in a four hour sleep, and my missing the Piano Bar restaurant that night and having to suffer with takeaway.
I even uncovered the bedding to find the brand of mattress, protectors, underlay and pillows, for my own bed at home. If only I could replicate it, I might have saved my self a few nights stay of cash!
The next night sleep was definitely brought on by the dinner at the Piano Bar, perfectly cooked Barramundi with a divine Roasted Capsicum sauce, fresh veggies steam to just sweet and crunchy, best healthiest meal I have had at a Motel. Value for money for taste v's weight!!
I felt so good after dinner, I even went out of the norm and ordered dessert!
At first, I thought over priced, then the meal spoke for itself, We love to pay for good food. Dessert, Apple Pie, was again, I thought expensive. Then it was presented first class, a serving that was spoiling yourself silly, yet not ruining the entire evening.
A few rums after dinner, I slept in the air con room, to my own cd music & Discovery Animal Channel in the background. One of the only hotels with TV that you can actually work.
Why go home?
The next morning, Continental Breakfast was all I needed because of the variety. It was all fresh, cold, clean and well presented, lounge to enjoy morning news and coffee afterwards, internet to keep the kids busy while you read the paper, or there is the glorious pool, that can't be seen from the road and has been hidden by clusters of palms, that swirl up the breeze.
My 13 yr son was perfectly occupied, taking photos of the gardens, talking to staff and living in the pool. I was happy with a book waiting for the bar to open again.
It was a fantastic stay, and will be staying there again for sure.
