You can park outside your door, the rooms are spacious, with kitchenette. Beds are comfy! They have 2 big pools and a kiddies swimming pool, plus tennis courts, a patio if your on ground floor. My only grudge was the TV reception, but hey beggars can't be choosers.

Excellent accommodation, clean, spacious with lovely views from the balcony of the local countryside. First class restaurant, amazing dinner, Masterchef presentation and very generous portions. Wished we could have stayed longer. Friendly, welcoming staff who were lovely to deal with.

Gerringong is a wonderful coastal town about 2 hours from Sydney, though there are no ocean views you are not far away from it. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area you will not be disappointed. There is plenty to keep you occupied at the Resort, 2 swimming pools, a tennis court, Spa, restaurant, bar....

We had 2 nights in a king balcony room purchased via Scoopon. Definitely not brand new, but a very well maintained property. Everything lived up to what was promised. Reception was smooth, and friendly, both on arrival and departure. Our room was well equipped and the king bed comfortable. Free Wifi trouble free. The resort was probably only about 30%... More
