Positive Reviews

Great location- near Airlie Beach attractions

The inn's location is rated highly by guests, as it is perfect for those who wanted to visit the Port of Arlie. It is also very close to the main street and the beach, and perfect for visiting the boats and the ferries. Moreover, there are many dining options surrounding the hotel.

Beautiful room views!

Guests really liked the outlook from their rooms overlooking the tropical pool and the ferry terminal to the islands. They were surprised to have an inspiring room view despite the cheap price of their accommodation.

On-site restaurant serves delectable meals

Those who were able to dine at the on-site restaurant enjoyed the foods they have tasted! All dishes were well done to the point of a 5-star dining. Many reviewers mentioned the delicious Eye Fillet and the Curry Pot Pie.

Negative Reviews

Noisy- situated along a busy street

The property is located on a busy street, and guests staying in rooms near the road are often disturbed by the road noise even early in the morning. This property may not be advisable for light sleepers, as the property do not provide earplugs.

Inefficient Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi signal in the individual rooms was slow, which irritated many guests. Although they were able to connect to the Wi-Fi, they had problems surfing the web. Most of them had to go to the front desk just to access the Internet.

Bar & Restaurant are closed on Holidays

Previous guests were also disappointed after finding out that the on-site restaurant was closed during their stay there. The hotel's bar and restaurant were closed during Holidays, which was bad news for those who wanted to try their delectable dishes.
