What a great place to stay. The rooms were clean and well kept. It was a great place to have a reunion and the family that run it made us feel very welcome. I would recommend these holiday apartments to all my friends and family and have already done so.

Found this place to stay so I could attend my sons wedding. The overall experience was awesome. From the start of signing in to when we checked out the place was great.The only down side is the fact you have to tackle the stairs. We were given the top floor apartment with views but there 6 flights o stairs to...

Although I have been staying (on my own) at Placid Waters while on business and it has suited me perfectly, I think the real value of this venue is for families. The apartments are spacious and the verandas are a lovely place to while away your time looking at the water across the park. Do not expect 5 star but...

We stayed here for 10 days and really enjoyed the facilities at the holiday apartment and the lovely location. The unit was spacious with two large double rooms, big lounge, big bathroom and all the facilities you could want in the laud rey and kitchen. The unit is more like a small house. Pool and garden was well kept and...

Pity about the rules. They are everywhere you look - a myriad of signs in stairwells, in the units, outside the units, around the pool, in the car park - all telling you what you can't do and how much you will be charged if you break the rules. No "Welcome, we're glad you are here, have a great time"...

Really enjoyed our 5 day stay in unit 1, opposite the park/museum/water. Close to shops, fishing, the jetty & the park. Nice & spacious, great service & nice pool. Would easily come back & stay again.

We have had a wonderful week stay here at placid waters. It's a very family friendly place situated directly across from a beautiful big play ground, calm beach, museum and loads of cafes and places to eat. The rooms are older styled rooms but did not lack as far as comfort was concerned. The staff are also very lovely and...

The unit we were in was clean but "tired". I think the owner should consider a refurb. The grounds, garden and pool were lovely but a huge down side is "no lifts". We are 70ish, were on the 3rd level, and didn't think to ask about lifts when we booked. The units are very handy to cafes etc; lovely peaceful...

Had stayed here about 10 years ago ant it was most pleasant. I was looking forward to returning here. The property is well located in close walking distance to the beach, museum shops, restaurants and only a short drive to the service clubs. Unfortunately little has changed in the last 20 years. We stayed in unit 10 this time round....
