“DON'T DO IT!!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2011

we had the room connected to the kids 'playground'.. it was a branch-filled sand pit with a dinghy in the middle.. thats all. The room was filthy when we arrived with a stale-stench smell - it seemed the room hadnt been opened for quite a while. There was sand all around the living room as well as the bathroom. There was a leak in the kitchen ceiling above the sink - the ceiling was mouldy as it had been raining for a few days prior to our arrival - the leaking water was brown in colour, so the kitchen was off limits during our stay (but to tell u the truth we wouldnt of used it anyway as it was old and out- dated, smelt and had cobwebs on the walls). Not good for families as there is absolutely nothing for the kids to do - no nearby beach to swim - totally in the middle of nowhere. Breakfast was good though - that was the only good thing i reckon. Everything here is just so old and out-dated, it needs MAJOR renovations. Don't let the photos on their website fool you peoples! Looks ARE deceiving in this case! If you really have to stay here, just make it a stopover as the rates are cheap. Otherwise, DON'T DO IT!!
As the saying goes - you get what you pay for!

Reviewed 26 September 2010

We arrived late on a Friday night had to sign in and gets keys at hotel bar.
Dinner I recommend the Barramundi fillet, not the beef burger. Burger too dry, but the Barra was beaut! Beds were neat with fresh towels. Apart from some water damage on the ceiling above sink and in bathroom. Room was cozy. Some fellow guest were far too loud during the night till 4am. But, your view of a morning is more than worth your stay. Across the road is the view of the Shoalhaven River and further off the surf can be seen crashing against Seven Mile Beach.
Breakfast included in tariff choose the big breakfast or the poached eggs with bacon and toast you'll get a coffee or juice included with breakfast. Sit outside at the benches and enjoy the view.
I'd recommend to friends if they wanted somewhere cheap for a quick stay not a long stay.
Staff where very good and most accomodating and friendly.
