5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is relatively new. There's parking on site, though it is limited and you need to book a space. However, there are some free, un-timed spaces around the hotel. It's within an easy walk of the main areas of Maroochydore, so I found it convenient just to park my car and walk where I wanted to go.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
There was a worker that was awful. Made fun of my disability and finally changed my room from one where the heater was broken , but not until the next day . I would like reimbursement for the first night as I was freezing and told 3 separate staff that told me it was fine and it wasn’t . I finally got real help the next day .

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Complete waste of money When we arrived there was no parking on site. We had to find paid parking about 10min walk away after spending an hour looking for a park. Room was stuffy as there is no way to open windows. Beds were very basic with a single duvet with no over sheet. Material was scratchy. Buffet breakfast was very basic. Hot food was scrambled eggs hash browns and sausages. The sausages tasted terrible. They were out of black tea at the buffet.
