When I spend $400 per night I have an expectation that the resort is going to be very nice and very attentive. This resort is a basic over the hill building with a nice entrance.

When I spend $400 per night I have an expectation that the resort is going to be very nice and very attentive. This resort is a basic over the hill building with a nice entrance. The room I stayed in was not fun. There was holes in the shower area in the grout. The tile work was terrible and old. The paint was peeling off the bar that was there to assist people in the bathroom. There was no great service. It was mediocre. The food in the restaurant was nice but not excellent. I wanted a snack and the only place to get this was a vending machine. I went to the little coffee bar and had to ring for service. When you pay these prices, and mine was cheap compared to other rooms, you have an expectation of something special. This room could be had anywhere else for about $89. Read less

The view over the beach and rocky coast can’t be beaten, especially when you can lay in bed and see it. The coffee shop onsite (Wild Bean) does great coffee. There are fab walks such as the Wild Pacific Trail right on the doorstep and some great little restaurants such as The Blue Room and Frankie’s. Read less

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights this week. We had a one bedroom lodge. This had a large living room/kitchen area, a massive bathroom, a balcony and a good size bedroom. The views were quite simply second to none. Perfect views of the sea crashing over the rocks, you could smell and hear the sea very clearly - wonderful. The accommodation was well equipped with a large TV in the living area and the bedroom, oven, fridge, dishwasher, coffee facilities etc. We didn't want to leave the room with its panoramic views, so used the room facilities rather than the hotel restaurant etc. Staff were wonderful without exception. Location is good for a peaceful break. I'm a keen runner so was in my element here with the wild Pacific Trail on its doorstep. No complaints whatsoever, we would both love to return. Read less

I came to this hotel during the summer, and it was extremely relaxing. The suites were apartment sized, and the bathrooms were absolutely beautiful as well. From the main bedroom, you can hear waves crashing on the shore, which is very relaxing and calming. Also, the pool area is very nice and clean. Overall, a great resort to take a relaxing… Read more

My wife and I stayed at the resort for 4 nights and it was excellent. We had a change of plans very close to our check in time (had to shift our stay by a day) and Caleb effortlessly rearranged things for us. We were not satisfied with our room upon checking in (did not think it was an "Ocean View") but Josh was very quick to resolve our concerns. We were given the option to move rooms (at an additional cost but we were fine with it) and he sorted out our concern very quickly, all while smiling. Him and the others would always pleasantly greet us in the lobby and ensure we were looked after. The food at Fetch and Float was great and the staff were fantastic. Thank you to Josh, Isaiah, Caleb and the others we came across during our stay there, you were all nothing short of outstanding. Read less
