The hotel decor is old and dated. The beds are comfy hwever the restaurant was not open on the weekend. The pool was outright dangerous. The ladder was wobbley and the steps on the ladder were difficult for a senior to use as they were more than a step and a half. I ended up with a bruise on my knee trying to exit the pool.
As always, checking in, state of the rooms, were great, always sleep well. Been a while since i dined in the restaurant downstairs & i now know why. Wait staff professionalism very ordinary, ordered a med rare steak & came out just over medium & dry. Happy to stay again when next in Gladstone but dining i will venturing elsewhere. I took a client to dinner & neither of us were impressed.
I stay here every time I come to Gladstone. The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfy. Air con is a bit noisy. Bar has happy hour bet 5pm-6pm. Room service for dinner and breakfast however on this trip found that breakfast is not available on the weekend. Staff are friendly. Can recommend.
has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
