8/10 Very Good

Better than the island
Very comfortable and in a great location close to everything. The options of which pool you wanted to use was great. Following an over night stay we went to one of the islands and we were very sorry that we didn't just stay at waters edge resort. This place was more comfortable and a much better price. Highly recommend this place.

Awesome hotel
Loved the hotel and pool was amazing. The furniture in the apartment could do with an upgrade but apart from that the hotel was awesome. Great location with a short walk to the hight street. It will be even better when the cafe/ kitchen is open so you can grab a coffee or something to eat onsite. Rooms are awesome and the views are breathtaking. The infinity pool overlooks the harbour and there is an awesome spa too. The lady on reception was also awesome and super helpful We will be back

6/10 Good

The views and location are fantastic. As we did not have a car it was very handy being so close to everything. The pools were sparkling and plenty of shady seating around the pools. The lady on the reception was lovely and helpful. However, a gentleman in reception was rude and unpleasant to deal with. The room was not clean, I had to wash all the towels when we arrived. The room smelled unpleasant too. Wifi was patchy. The room keys that operate the power were temperamental and as such when we called up at 8pm the night phone as we could not get our aircon working we was told just open the doors until the next day. Thankfully we managed to fix it ourselves. The spa had zero chemicals in and by day 4 the spa water looked too dirty to use (we own a spa so know this is what the chemicals are for to stop this happening). Definitely, our room needed a facelift, its our 3rd visit to Airlie but I would not book here again.

6/10 Good

Couldn't check in until 330, which we understood due to staff shortage, but room was still dirty when we entered, wife had to wipe down kitchen benches, mould in bathrooms. Rooms need a massive revamp as they are starting to be really outdated. Very disappointing considering the price. If there's any positive the views are amazing

We liked the place. It was just a bit unclean/dusty in the room. Curtains need updating

Loved being quite close to the shopping / restaurant area. Access to the wi-fi is very, very limited, in the apartment we had. Only just accessible from the balcony. Not fun in hot weather.

4/10 Fair

The location and view was really good. However the overall cleanliness of the room was substandard, for eg... furniture,benchtops etc weren't clean, the sheets had marks on them and there was no bedspread.Was disappointed with our stay there.
