Superb 9.2 From 42 reviews

Fair 4.0
Very disappointing
Below average. - right in the high way so lots of noise from traffic - slow service - old non maintained/renovated rooms - WiFi not working - more like a 3 star establishment + nice breakfast outside area Overall very disappointing
Daniel, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Great location, but........
We liked the location of the hotel, at the beginning of Kysna and set on the shoreline of the bay. There is some construction work going on in the hotel currently, and they decided to close the restaurant, probably due to winter and not many guests, but even so, they should have put that on the website.. There was a 3 option sandwich menu available in the evening, rather sad really. Also, the other issue we had was the smell of cooking throughout the hotel at 5pm, which was the staff cooking their food as we were told, so the ventilation must not have been working in the kitchen to have caused this kind of overall spread of cooking smells. We had a suite on the first floor and could smell the food in the hall of the suite, we burnt incense and sprayed deodorant to help rid the smell. Overall the hotel was lovely but these few things didn't sit well with us.

Great facilities and beautiful lagoon edge locatio
Beautiful location at the waters edge with fantastic views . Management team and reception staff exceptionally friendly and welcoming . Breakfast really nice particularly when weather was good enough to dine on the outside patio . Rooms are very spacious and well appointed . There is however need to consider refurbishing the bathroom which is now looking somewhat dated . Would definitely stay here again and especially at the price we paid
