Arrived late afternoon and checked in. Had a good chat with the receptionist about what was available locally which in October isn't much. Settled into our large room - strange shape. Small patio area but as it was chucking it down it didn't get used. Came with a lovely breakfast in the morning. Tea and coffee in the room.

Pleasant staff but I like my coffee stronger Scones and cakes were delicious Indoor and outdoor dining options No view to speak of but centrally located Indoor recommended to get away from the flies which seem to be a problem at certain times of the year

While this is billed as a boutique hotel with an ocean view, the room was very average. Our view was a tiny peek a boo view over the roof tops from the balcony. When we arrived at the reception it took a long while for anyone to even acknowledge us. We were given two sheets of paper to fill in...

Another stop-over on ocean road drive, allocated room 6 apparently with sea view, albeit but a glimpse over the roof tops from small balcony. Room 6 okay, nothing special but had nice linen, towels & toiletries etc. Also no doubt like other travellers we did find heaving our large suitcases up the narrow stairs a bit of a chore. We...

Very basic accomodation arrived late in the date the restaurant looked inviting ... The tip off should have been the unfriendly interaction and the parked ute piled with cartons that you can't see from the street ....while room was large and clean very basic, rear garden unkept, towels well used, no ambience ...very disappointed considering how much it cost

The word luxury and the actual room are about as far apart as one could get. Not much better than your basic cheap roadhouse. No view. Spartan amenities. Bad heat. Bad lighting. I've had better at a Holiday Inn. Since the site wants more - cinder block construction, indoor-outdoor type carpets. They do give you bathrobes to use....

Been travelling through Australia for 4 weeks from and this is the very worst food experience we had, and the rudest people that we met in Australia. Restaurant was quite busy as it was Good Friday but after being seated we had to ask fora menu, the staff didn't seem to be switched on or care, had to ask for...

Room o.k. With nice linen,towels & toiletries and a "glimpse of the sea" over roof tops. Like others we did find heaving our large suitcases up the narrow stairs a bore. The menu looked good but when we went down for dinner tables were uncleared and there was general chaos. Think they had been serving outside tour parties. "We have...

Old facility. Clean but awkward open bathroom so NO privacy. Fairly good view from balcony. No elevator so had to lug heavy bags up narrow staircase. Good location in town. Decent beds. A/C was adequate.

We stopped at Waves for one night on our Ocean Road Tour. When you drive into the car park you think what is this, there is a tipper truck full of rubbish and other discarded item. From the car park you get entry to the hotel up wooden steps to the back of the restaurant, they should sign post guest...
