Right on the edge of Airlie Beach but far enough away to be very private and relaxing. Excellent sea views from our balconied room. Beautiful spot to enjoy a seaside holiday. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is also excellent.

We arrived late in the evening and had to rush to get dinner before the restaurant closed, but the food was very good and a great choice. As it was dark when we arrived we did not fully get to see the amazing gardens and view over the sea until the next morning. We had a corner room, so had...

After a very long drive from Hervey Bay we arrived to a warm welcome from Cane at reception, and a room upgrade to a spa room which had a great view over the sea, was really spacious, and had great bed, and lovely bath area. The pool area is beautiful, overlooking the sea, with lots of comfy loungers, and chairs...

This resort would have been fantastic in 'the day', or more importantly with a revamp of every aspect of the hotel. Great location but sadly thats where it ends. Don't expect 4.5 stars with breakfast, 3 star would be pushing it. This resort is old, outdated, poor service and clearly the chef does not have a love of food. We...

Great views and spectacular breakfast views. Rooms are a little dated but clean and pretty large. Good location for the town and esplanade. Would recommend to others. Service was very good too. Didn't use any of the amenities as we were busy taking trips. Really enjoyed our 3 island trip recommended by the tour office based in hotel.

Great Location and Superb Views. Others review the beds as too soft but we found them amazing. So comfortable and the feather pillows were a real bonus compared to most hotels. The room we had (211) could use updating but had everything we needed. Was great to have undercover parking and staff were efficient and friendly. We paid for the...

Our 2 night stay was the end of a 10 day holiday. We had 8 nights on a charter boat sailing the Whitsunday Islands and this was a perfect finale. Staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We booked a room with ocean view and what a view it was. The resort had everything one would...

This is probably the best hotel in Airlie Beach. It is about 5 minutes walk from the main centre which is full of burger joints, accommodation frequented by backpackers, and travel shops all offering trips to the islands. That 5 minutes means you are close enough to walk into town but far enough away to make it very quiet. There...

We stayed here for 5 nights and although there was nothing bad, everything was a bit underwhelming. The room had a beautiful view and was generally well furnished with a good TV and a microwave which was useful. However, the crockery was dirty, the safe was not properly attached to the wall and the iron & ironing board needed to...
