short break from Melbourne Winter.

This hotel is great we had a 1 bed apartment on the 4th floor with views to die for! Best views in Airlie Beach, I would say. The hotel has 3 pools and a hot spa, but the pools were a little cold for me but were being used by many people. Breakfast continental style is included, no hot drinks though but can be purchased or just have another drink when you go back to room. Fast lift to all floors. Only draw back is the steep hill getting from the road up to reception. It was a killer, the transfer bus dropped us at the bottom and we had to haul cases up. Suggest walk down, taxi back, that gets expensive but if you have a dodgy ticker you would enjoy your stay more . There is plenty of parking should you want to hire a car. The reception staff were very helpful, they booked our tours for us , there are many to choose from. We had an afternoon flight and the hotel offer late check outs , we had until 12 for 25 dollars you could stay later if room available for 50 dollars. Just those 2 hours were good to just sit and chat looking out over the water at the boats and the sunshine. The apartment has 1 bed with ensuite, a lounge diner, kitchen and hallway with laundry cupboard. The patio doors open onto the veranda from 2 sides and there is also a patio door from the bedroom to the veranda. Would definitely stay here again. Its an older hotel so a few things look tired, but you are not there much with Airlie sunshine calling.
