We arrived the day before Covid shut down of most attractions and shops. So we spent a lot of time in the unit which had everything we needed and a great verandah and view to enjoy outside even though we couldn’t get out.

Well organised stay with night key box

We found the receptionists very helpful on arrival & departure. They were very friendly and willing to please. Having stayed at the Observatory about 5 times now, we have enjoyed it so much that we will always return for holiday breaks.

great location, friendly helpful staff ,,,loved the pool and spa, we stayed before and told friends this time they came with us and want to stay again also. We will be back again as soon as the Glasshouse is able to start presenting all the great stuff it did before.

Andrew Families - 25/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a perfect stay. Staff were very welcoming and helpful, and it's a lovely walk over to the beach. The view from our room was spectacular, and it was a large 2BR that our newly walking 16 month old just loved. It seemed to have everything we needed and nothing we didn't.

great location

Rowena G. Couples - 25/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had an ocean view room with the louvres. I was a bit disappointed that the wall was very high and this and the furniture did not really invite us to enjoy the view at leisure. We found ourselves leaving the room to enjoy the location. Also the room servicing made our bed but it was obvious that they never vacuumed. by the end of the 4th day the floor was really bad. Reception desk service was great. very helpful and informative.

Good Stay

The Mantra complex was well presented. However our room needed to be freshened up (paint job) it was looking a little old. Also there was a damp smell in the room.

Lan Couples - 22/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have been coming to The Observatory for the last 10years and always love my stay. The last two times it has been after a management change and I have never been offered any form of loyalty discount. I have always booked directly with the reception there and I still get charged the same rate as third party sites online. This is a bit of a letdown for me

Great views in a good location

Staff were very helpful and the room was clean and well maintained. A great view and a good location. The shower was terrific. Soundproofing from the street was excellent but not between rooms. There was a family next door one night that had very noisy small children.

Very well located - and we had an excellent stay,

Beryl P. Friends - 21/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Apart from the strangeness of your double doors - we found our experience quite delightful, from the time we entered reception. The parking spaces were a bit tight - especially with so many 4WD type vehicles - and we had a mobility sticker, but couldn't find a parking place. So tried to park in, or near, the same space near the West Tower Lift. The staff we dealt with were pleasant, helpful and courteous. The room good, the bed comfortable, and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. But please, I know they are fashionable, but these tall, backless stools and high breakfast type bars which are very popular - are not that suitable for older people - so were not used by us. The bathroom, especially the shower - was great,

Well located but needed a car to get to town. Great place to stay.

Our 2b/room appartment was lovely it had everything you would need. Beds were comfy and ensuite and main bathroom were very well appointed. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful especially Karen who went out of her way to accommodate us. Can’t wait to go back.
