Lovely winter weather, the area really turned it on, great views from very comfortable accommodation. It was great to see the surfers at town Beach each morning, we envied them. Will seriously consider visiting again. Can't be faulted.

The view, the accommodation and attention to detail exceptional. We look forward, and nearly always choose, to stay at The Observatory to break our journey to Queensland. A great way to break a long trip and rejuvenate the soul.

Good view of the town beach surfers, And Scampies is a great handy restaurant for all meals.
One small problem with a loose towel rail in the bathroom was resolved the same day without fuss.
Check out was the quickest I have had for a long time so very pleased with that.

Very comfy bed and beautiful views. Very clean and room made up beautifully each day. Horrible instant coffee, take your own!
No smoking area, forced to go across the road which in winter is not nice. Not sure why smoking not allowed on balcony

The Observatory Hotel is in a great location just 15 minutes walk to the town centre. Directly across the road is Town Beach and a wonderful coastal walk. We had ocean views and we utilised the heated indoor pool and spa which were very clean. Would definitely stay again.
