I am a Mudgeeraba local and always support local business. Some months ago the Wallaby pub had been renovated and they did have a fantastic couple running the kitchen. I have now visited twice for dinner and noticed the kitchen staff have changed. This is reflected in the food. While they try to follow the menu the quality, quantity and plate up is very very poor. I had a Lamb shank meal with one very small piece of Lamb on mash potatoes. This came with the smallest, thin (very thin) roast sweet potato, Mini broccoli and zucchini and yes wait more roast white potatoes???? $26 .What ! So if you like to eat a traditional PUB meal this is not for you. It definitely looked like budgets have been cut! We did order char grilled corn as a side and it came out Black!! No yellow colour in sight, this was returned to kitchen, it came back with additional two more pieces of grilled corn!! (not black). $8. Corn was tasteless and covered in soy sauce to hide the fact they were frozen mincobs!
We were given a very lovely and spacious spa suite. The rooms came with king beds along with very comfy lounge chairs and tables. The only downside was the TV is too small for the room but that's about it! It's very friendly and helpful staff, pool is good overall a family friendly hotel! Shops are close by and Pacific Fair is only 5 mins drive away. Safe secure free parking too which is great too
Thanks to the managers Denise and George at Esplanade Apartments for ensuring our short stay was truly exceptional. The facilities were fantastic and the accommodation overlooking glorious Burleigh Beach just over the road was great. We could not have had a better place to stay!
We walked into our apartment on the 6th floor and the a great view and the staff were nice. When the aircon was on it had a very strange noise. Nearly everything they had in the room you had to pay extra for but was nice. Still wasnt the nicest hotel ive stayed in though.
Honestly, it's in such a great location, very close to the convention centre, beach etc. The hotel is very clean, the staff are really nice and the rooms are spacious and fully equipped. I'd stay there again for sure.
