        Penny pinching or lazy”

        Penny pinching or lazy, you decide. Paid $1000 for 7 nights over New Year. Only 1 hand towel, no change of bed linen or towels [only after 8 nights or more] Pool gate locked until 8.00am some mornings when it clearly states in room information open at 7.30am. The Jack and Jill caretakers need to realise they are there for the paying guests, not to make life easy for themselves. Alan & Susan.

        Reviewed January 13, 2019

        Thank you for your comments. This is his third stay with us. This guest would have known 100% from his previous visits all about the property. Pool Signs Signs on the pool gate clearly show it opens at 8am and normally I open the gates a little earlier but being new year's day I opened on time - maybe lazy but it was the 1-Jan-19 :) Communication Not once during his stay did he ever ask for new/more towels, in fact, we offered him a pool towel instead of using his bath towels, but this was ignored. We can do so much when guests talk to us but he chose not to. We tried to directly approach him to talk but he would go out of his way to avoid us. Not sure his intentions for this. We tried to wish him a 'good morning' every time we saw him but there was no response. We work hard to help guests enjoy their holidays, but sometimes there are some we can never do the right thing.

        Excellent location, Nice facilities”

        The rooms are clean and big enough for a couple to travel, smallish balcony’s. The location to pretty much everything in PD is perfect and this is why we chose this accomodation. A short stroll to all the town has to offer, no need to drive anywhere. BBQ facilities and pool are good, wouldn’t recommend for large family or group travelling together Would stay here again..

        Having arrived after midnight when reception was closed, our room key and welcome letter had been kindly left for us by staff. Our room was large, clean with a good fan and A/C. The pool area was like a little tropical oasis (although the edge of the pool is very rough and took the skin off my knee) - we were disappointed that we couldn’t spend much time out there due to the weather. It’s a very short walk into town and to the wharf (ideal if your going to the Great Barrier Reef). We would definitely stay here again.

        Basic but met our needs”

        The rooms were basic, but included the advantage of a microwave, toaster, hot plates and other cooking/eating utensils which meant you could self-cater. There were also outdoor BBQs available. Walking distance to the main street, including a large supermarket, as well close proximity to the marina and beach made this a convenient location for all our requirements.
