6/10 Good

An Average Choice
Make sure you search the name of this resort on Google Map ... becoz the GPS will guide you to the wrong place if you search by it's address. The Front Desk is not very helpful when I called her for direction after I was lost. It's restaurant is closed for renovation & this resort is sitting on nowhere near anything within walking distance. Again the Front Desk is not very helpful making recommendation re where to eat. It's swimming pool is located between the highway & the resort ... which is an odd place to be becoz it is not quiet neither private. Quite discouraging. The room is good sized & clean nonetheless "not new". Got more TV channels than the usual which is nice. They always left the window towards the highway opened. So if you're bother by the noise, go check your windows & close them. If you prefer fresh air than A/C you can keep the bathroom's window open instead. Works well for me. There's no extra blanket in the room. So if you're feeling cold, the only thing that could save you is the A/C. Whether I would stay here again next time I'm in town ? ... may be. After all it is NOT the best nor the worst place I've been to at similar price range in the neighborhood.

Clean ! Great. But the address given was incomplete, corner of Shellharbour Road (without any cross street) is NOT a complete address. A complete address includes a cross street or at least a street number.

The shower and toilet needs a Reno. The bed was not comfy and moved from the bed head. Pillows and bed sheets Need renewing. The carpet smelly and old.

8/10 Very good

Was okay for what we needed at short notice, not quite ‘resort’ worthy. Having dispensers for shampoo and soap etc was a great idea, but need to ensure they are filled appropriately before guests arrive.
