Rooms are old and dated, cleaning staff would would pull out their trolleys around 7am waking everyone up. Pool area is nice but price of beverages is over the top, your paying pint prices for schooner size beers! Restaurant staff continued to stuff up orders on the several occasions we used it, I thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt on a couple of occasions, but continued to be average service.

Waited over an hour for a meal that should of be ready within 30 mins, food was over cooked & sat on bench for a reasonable amount of time. Wouldn’t recommend to family or friend who are hungry. Overcharging for meals . Example- sausage & mash $28 For 2 x like lil boy sausage size & potato. Drink waiter is nonexistent & only appear once . In other words we won’t be coming back. Terrible experience.

It’s a lovely resort that has a really nice pool area with lots of shaded & non-shaded areas to relax. The buildings only go as high as a second level so there’s never too many stairs to climb. The ‘superior room, 1 queen bed’ has a queen bed plus a single and is a decent size. Also has a balcony with table & chairs and big bathroom. However for the price, I would think the TV would be of higher quality - it functions fine with assorted channels but is outdated tech. WiFi is only free for 2 hours and then will cost $10 a day. The food from Cossies Poolside Bar & Bistro is good but can get up there in price. A 330ml bottle of sprite was $5.00. The staff are all incredible!! Location is amazing, 300m walk from the airport. Even in the heat it is an easy walk but if you have a lot of luggage, then it may be worth getting the shuttle (which I believe is an on-demand basis so call the hotel for details). I am traveling solo for 5 days visiting family. It’s easy enough to get an Uber to where I need to go, city is 15 minutes away. UberEats has no available restaurants near by so keep that in mind if you tend to order from them frequently. Overall a nice hotel especially if you like relaxing by the pool.

The hotel reception and pool area were very impressive on arrival. The checkin/checkout was pleasant. Unfortunately thats where the good points end. The staff at the restaurant for morning breakfast were actually very rude. The rooms were very dated, carpets and walls stained, smelling like smoke. The shower is designed for people <140cm.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived for our last night in the NT. The Reception and Pool areas were impressive. Our Poolside Bungalow was spotless, spacious and very comfortable. All staff were very friendly and welcoming. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again
