Spent a week at the moorings with my wife and two teenage children. We had two rooms which were simple but clean and adequate. The staff were very friendly and always happy to help. The resort itself however fell short of the write up. The award wining coffee could not be tasted because the coffee machine was broken, the pool...

Dear Rowleyal, Thank you for your review. We fully agree with you, the resort has indeed seen better days. That said, renovations are moving along very fast and, after only 3 weeks, it already looks much better than September 2nd, when the resort was taken over. We do apologise for the lack of facilities, we too were disappointed with the...

Nothing special here. The rooms are pricey for what they are. There are better options in and around town less expensive and more lively. Fast food available at the restaurant. Wifi is slow and only available at the restaurant. Location is central on the harbour.

Reviewed 7 September 2014

Getting better by the day since the new owners took over. When we arrived, we loved the location and the hotel itself but the staff were sad and quiet and the kitchen was non existent almost. Within hours of the new owners taking over, the staff were back to their normal happy selves, plans were being made to fix all...

Reviewed 2 September 2014

A good place to stay - only 5 -10 mins walk into town in the evening to go to restaurants. The night club next door closed the night before we arrived and is not going to reopen so was quiet at night. During the day there was building work happening next door so it was noisy during the day in...

Trinity Beach, Australia
Reviewed 2 September 2014

The Moorings hotel has a great location, only a short walk to town, and located on the harbour. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the only problem is that the previous Australian owner ran the place down, and there are many problems including a sub par kitchen etc I think a previous review said that the hotel was tired,...
