The staff were magnificent and everything you need is there. Just a bit run down. Practical not romantic. You need a car but downtown is close. It's a bit noisy. No wifi was a big problem for the teens. The staff helped with any request. Pool available but not the right season.

Stayed: July 2016, travelled with family

Stayed for 2 nights with our 2 teen daughters. Everything was good. It was touching to see that special care had been taken to make things just right. Dated, yes, but clean, well-supplied and everything working properly. Considering the age and amenities it's not what you would call a bargain at $90 a night but we didn't have the energy/time to keep looking. The one review talks about good breakfast; we were not aware there was a breakfast offered.

The appartment was great , well equipped kitchen, clean & tidy! Yes it was dated, but everything worked, we were at the front but didnt find it noisy. 4 of us sharing , plenty of hot water for showers, managers great, helpful & friendly. We got value for money & would quite happily stay again :)

Reviewed 20 September 2014

We stayed for 8 nights and wouldn't return, it is just too basic with little or no maintenance. The units really need to be stripped and refurbished and outfitted with someone that is actually pleased to see you. The chap who appeared to be in charge needs a personality transplant, gave us the impression that he doesn't want to be there and couldn't care less if you stayed or not anyway. Whole impression is that this Villa Shangri-La looks to be very third world standard, do not expect a palace!
Positives are that the unit is roomy, the pool is well maintained, great off road parking and the bed is comfortable.
On the other hand owners have dogs that bark every time someone arrives or departs, the TV is not huge and the old fashioned sort. The cooker looks like it has seen better days but is functional. Washing machine and dryer look like old rust buckets and $3 each for a load to wash another $3 to dry if you want to take the risk. Went down to the office to pay for a washing load and get some powder for machine; no washing powder available and it is an extra cost. Aircon only in bedroom and too noisy to run overnight but then I guess this is a cost saving strategy?

Room Tip: wouldn't bother....
