The views and the location is prime but that's about where the positives stop from this review. When you open the door the first thing you see is this outdated room which the carpet is so stained that your not sure if its blue or green anymore. The CRT 34cm tv with anologue tuner reception is dreadful reminds me back... More

We have stayed at Salamander Shores on a number of occasions over the last 26 years. We go there because it is close to family and friends and we love Salamander Bay. This is the last time we will go there. It has definitely gone past its use by date. We need a good quality hotel in the Salamander Bay... More

We had the best time here I loved the location and the staff were all so lovely. The breakfast was great too and the kids loved the bird feeding. The rooms are very basic but who cares when your on holidays plus that was great for the price we paid. It was great value and it was very relaxing.

We travelled around Australia and this was the worst hotel we stayed in. We had a spa room which was very big, it was so dated and tired though. We had an ocean view, but you could only just spot the sea because all you could really see from our balcony was the roof from next door. The breakfast was... More

Yes, it's dated, but the view from our room was outstanding and it was clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault housekeeping. I love the area of Soldiers Point, it's quiet and has a village feel. The only problem is the parking, we had an issue with the disabled parking, there was two clearly parked spots, and one... More
