8.8 Excellent
Pros: Room (cabin) was spacious and spotlessly clean. The kitchenette was useful to prepare a simple meal and well equipped ...we could have asked the staff for more if needed. The BBQ was great with all utensils. The grounds are immaculate and gardens well kept. The pub next door is great, however we didn't eat there. Location good as in the middle of the town and quite close to supermarket and shops. All in all a pleasant place to stay.
Cons: Negatives ....in the 21st century one would expect a wifi service to the room, instead of having to,stand around the reception to get wifi signal. Need to upgrade their wifi system. The television was minuscule and difficult for sight challenged seniors to see from a distance.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, great apartment.
Cons: The receptionist made the assumption that I wasn't staying there and was hijacking the amenities, which was clear by her accusing attitude. A very risky little game to play as a receptionist of a 5-star hotel.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic ocean views, tavern and bottle shop part of the same complex and meals fantastic.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The room was well appointed with great bedding and furniture, the TV and stereo system was outstanding. Great location and friendly staff that were always helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Cons: The overall appearance of the establishment is looking neglected and needing a freshen up. Rust throughout the building structures being the most apparent. Water in the lifts and elevated walkways was akin to a public toilet. Would suggest tiling walkways with a fall so water does not sit on them.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very comfy beds, lovely sea views, peaceful and could walk everywhere. The chairs with moveable feet rests/head rests were terrific - ugly but so comfortable. Retractable washing line great as we’d been hiking on Fraser Island & had lots of washing.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was amazing We loved it
Cons: Needs a Thai restaurant at rainbow
6.8 Good
Cons: Media access was very poor in regards to the television. Basically only had access to ABC, the other channels were very hit and miss due to poor antennas. Also some simple instructions on what is available and what you need to pay for, and how to do this, would be useful as all equipments was Samsung so all remotes were Samsung - I didn’t have a 12 year old to assist me. That may sound dumb but, at times, you can work the functions through matching equipment to ten remotes.

7.0 Good
Pros: Walking distance to beach and town centre. An older style motel with updated bathroom tiles etc.
Cons: Having to wash the dishes used for breakfast (otherwise credit card charged) in the bathroom sink where minutes before we were spitting our toothpaste. The sink plug also didn’t close so it was more of a rinse. Surely under the Health Act this isn’t legal and crockery etc should be washed elsewhere when there is no separate sink.

3.0 Mediocre
Pros: good pizza shop nearby
Cons: I knew I was staying at a budget backpackers but I had no idea how bad that meant the accomodation would be. Our door to our room didn’t close and was just open straight outside meaning it got very cold. There were disgusting brown stains EVERYWHERE, didn’t manage to get a photo of the huge one on the carpet but did of the bedroom sink. (attached photo) The water out of the tap came out brown. The ladies bathroom window opened right onto the seating area so everyone could hear you pee. The toilet was clogged. There was a toxic sign on the bathroom sink saying don’t touch? It was filled with green liquid.... (attached photo) Not to the hostels fault but all the dishes weren’t cleaned properly by the guests. The blind to our door was broken off and everyone could see into our whole room... even from the street!! (attached photo) My boyfriend and I ended up making an excuse and leaving early because driving home early seemed like a nicer option than staying another night in that place.
