Clearer signage required.
SIGNAGE FOR ACCESS TO RECEPTION WAS INADEQUATE/OBSCURED FROM VIEW. We were unable to raise reception on phone, and had no idea where drive in access to reception was. We were forced to walk up about 50 steep steps, with very bad knees. Never again.

Not up ti rating standard yet!
Lots of room still for improvement. Efforts have been made to replace furniture in the living area, bedrooms and patio, however the major let down is the bathroom which is very old, tired and dirty. Grout and fixings black in places. Leaks from shower screen and under sink. Kitchen area has had partial make over- now only a microwave and toaster but extractor gods remains from old hon installation and old fittings seem to encourage lots of ants! Not the standard you would expect if a Sebel but they have only recently taken over, so hopefully they will continue to invest and finish the rest of the renovations. Cleaning standard is very poor and needs addressing as lots of dust, dirt and hairs. Really needs a mid week service and bedding change if staying for 7 days Pool area is very good but needs a hand rail to help those less mobile ti enjoy the facilities. Staff very welcoming and friendly.

Terribe 0/5
Dirty & mouldy, no daily housekeeping like advertised, couldnt get a single good nights sleep on the pillows/bed. Toothpaste smeared on the 'clean' bedding. Charged $5 extra for new towels. Just overall bad experience. Save your money and go somewhere else.

2/10 Poor

The AC control panel on the wall was broken , could not adjust the temp in the unit 2 of the worst nights sleep i have ever had , the room was filthy and there was only a sheet fitted to the bed with 1 blanket that was thrown in the cupboard looked like it hadn't even been washed. Reported my concerns to the reception and was told the AC panel was on order they couldnt do anything. Poor service terrible cleanliness
