We actually tried to find a place in Hawks Nest, but there were limited options, so we chose here, hoping to be nearby. And we fell on our feet! Room 110, ground floor, at the front gave us great views of the Myall River across the road, and its constantly changing birdlife. Ours in a one bedroom apartment, but our... More

Don't be fooled! We have stayed here before and enjoyed the experience. We were offered a two day package again this year and booked a Sat/Sunday night stay. Less then six weeks before our stay, we received a call to say no apartments were available so we were out! No alternate offer. I checked the website - the Saturday night... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with our 3 children, biggest regret is that it wasn't for longer:) apartment was clean and had everything you would need, we had dinner on the balcony overlooking the pool and could see out to the river.... Beautiful! Kids packed their scooters and we walked with them all the way along the water... More

We stopped here for one night travelling back from Queensland. We were surprised to experience a luxury spa and king size bed. My husband also love the steam room and gym. The kids had to get in the lovely pool but it was a little cold, they soon warmed up in the spa. Beds were comfy and clean and we... More

Large modern rooms including bedrooms, kitchen and living room. Located on the rivers edge. Free wifi. There was a large pool but it was too cold to try. About a 3 min drive to the nearby Coles. Only downfall was the showers were leaking. Friendly staff.

Got a great price with booking.com for a 3br apartment for one night. Booked that morning. Requested top floor which was fine. Got a call from them to confirm bedding arrangements. The room was not quite ready on arrival so we had a 20 minute wait. Stay was all great and the apartment was excellent with high ceilings and lovely... More

We spent a a week in a two bedroom apartment and enjoyed ourselves very much. The view and services were outstanding, although the dishwasher need a bit of service on it! The staff were very friendly.

We enjoyed our stay, albeit for a limited time. We were impressed by the accommodation. It was clean, convenient and had great facilities. Loved the steamroom! Communication was great despite us checking in late and everything was sorted through they left behind. Probably the only downside was the pool. We called prior and checked if the pool would be heated... More

We enjoyed a three night mid week stay and it was well worth it. From the outset the staff were so helpful particularly Suzanne at reception who offered to mail our forgotten wine bag at her own expense! What a kind and thoughtful gesture. Even though there were only two of us we given a three bedroom apartment overlooking the... More
