... plugs and charging options…and the shower and bathroom are FABULOUS! The location is beautiful. The rooms were very quiet. The hotel restaurant was good (be sure to make reservations in advance). The pool was great and the workout building was wonderful too. I definitely recommend this property!

Wonderful hotel with a great location next to SH1. Team is very friendly and helpful. Heated pool and modern room design. Definitely recommend it to travellers. Great for staycation, close to airport too. Area is developing well.

This hotel is amazing and brand new. The queen queen room was very large with smart space usage to include table and 2 chairs, cubby for shoes, closet, water kettle, mini refrigerator, plenty of plugs and charging options…and the shower and bathroom are FABULOUS! The location is beautiful. The rooms were very quiet. The hotel restaurant was good (be sure to make reservations in advance). The pool was great and the workout building was wonderful too. I definitely recommend this property!

My family opted for this new hotel as a staycation alternative to the Cordis in the city that we usually book. However we decided to cut our stay short a night during this Anzac weekend since the hotel wasn’t what we expected for a warm relaxing get away. For a heated pool, it was too cold for us to swim in and missed indoor outdoor flow to the pool with it being very separate and gated away in a drafty area which lacked ambiance and greenery. The shower only trickled in the room, we were told on arrival that the restaurant was fully booked to outside guests so couldn’t even enjoy a family evening meal together. There was an awful smell throughout the corridors on the 2nd floor, the main light stopped working and there was no sky tv in the room. I should have gone with my initial impressions when the staff were rude over the phone and didn’t get back to me with my enquiry, which meant I booked online and not over the phone. When we spoke with hotel management about our disappointments, they didn’t really seem to care about sending us away with a good impression, merely one that is good enough but nothing to write home about. Let’s see if they can get things right in time once they are through the teething problems but I won’t be back to see if that happens as for the price of this hotel, we would rather go back to our usual favourites.

Lovely modern hotel that was welcoming, clean and spacious after a long drive. Wasn’t sure if DoubleTree still did the warm cookies at check in but yes handed out with a key such a lovely touch! Staff were wonderful and friendly throughout (especially our waitress in restaurant) and although we didn’t experience the pool plenty of people were taking advantage of the late summer evening sun. We would definitely stay again - thank you
