            sorry, not very good”

            the location was great, only 10 minute walk to the main town. All the staff were very nice and friendly. The rest was not very nice. It's a sad, tired and unappealing place to stay. Needs a really good clean, some new FRESH towels ( they provided towels that have certainly seen better days ) and some nice new furniture, especially Reception area. I understand it's a budget hotel, but surely they could take a little more pride in the little things

            The location is right next to the new marina and walking distance into Airlie Beach, for those having a night out, no need for taxis to get home! The set up is lovely, with a nice restaurant and bar on the premises, Breakfast included and newly refurbished rooms. There is even a dvd player in thr rooms and the reception has free to borrow DVDs and books. The pool was directly off our balcony and is a lovely oasis style. The staff were excellent and the rooms were very clean.

            Reasonable value for money hotel”

            Price

            I suppose this hotel is decent for the price, but it is pretty basic. The apartment was clean and a good size. However, I think next time I would rather pay a bit more and stay elsewhere. Having read some other reviews, I wonder if some of the rooms may have been renovated and we got an older one? It is a bit of a walk along a busy road to get to the beach, shops etc, but this also means it is a quieter location.
