I'm a gold Accor member, always been happy with Novotel and beyond standard. Stayed at the 3 bedrooms apartment. Novotel claimed the apt we stayed is one of the privately owned. I could imagine it was grand 20 yrs ago but really it's time for interior total makeover including the furnitures. It has grandfather microwave, one aircord not working, there...

The room and overall look of the hotel is pretty impressive , you can do a lot there and a good place to take lots of pictures. The restaurant looks good but over priced , simply crazy priced with small menu, /breakfast buffet 29$ + holiday surcharge and that too for 1 adult only. There is no BBQ facilities at...

Not sure why there are so many bad reviews on here for Pacific Bay Resort, my stay here was perfect. We stayed in the terrace area, nice big, airy room with comfy bed, large bathroom and balcony. Room was spotless overlooking pool and spa. The spa was really good, only problem trying to get in before someone else. I don't...

Washing machine and dryer, kitchen had everything you need. 3 pools, tennis courts, golf, kids club one night wasn't enough time to use everything. Breakfast was wonderful, food very...

Built in 1989, this place needs a serious refurbishment. The rooms are old fashioned and need new beds and proper doonas - not just a comforter wrapped in many sheets. Old fashioned built in air conditioner worked well but sooooo old! The shower was the only really good thing about the room - hard and hot and endless. Our main...

Stayed here for a break in the journey between Sydney and Byron Bay. It was reasonably comfortable but is in need of renovation. There is a puzzling sign in the room warning of Ants and Insects, a dual threat which kept my insect fobic partner awake. We had an adjoining room with someone else and that and the corridor outside...

Nice enough place but does look quite dated. I booked for one night so didn't try the restaurant or many of the other facilities. Room was bog standard but clean tidy and large enough. Good sized balcony ideal for kicking back with a beer or a cuppa. Good value and friendly welcome but I got the feeling this place was...

I have stayed a this resort many times before, and rooms have not change. The room I stayed in this visit was full of dust, when I arrived the air conditioner cover was on the floor so I rang reception and they sent a maintenance guy, he fixed it but he could not believe the dust all over it, he...

Photos on website don't match the rooms. Looks like an entirely different motel. Old furniture is a throw back to the sixties. For the price is rather sleep in my car. Bed was lumpy and old. Horrible place to stay. Meals were terrible.

I attended for two nights for a work conference. I stayed in the Terrace section and was not impressed at all. After taking half an hour walking up and down stairs to find my room I had done my weekly exercise. No lifts, Crap room number order and not enough car spaces, signage was very limited, lack of street lighting...
