Disappointing hospitality

by lorna2016 on 27 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We arrived on a very hot day to a space with no air-conditioning, no insect screens, and a pedestrian walkway at the rear that gave other guests a very good view into the room. When we complained about the temperature, we were told that the floor fan we requested could not be provided. A can of mosquito later appeared, but this was a case of too little too late. It was our most uncomfortable experience in a 3 week trip. Our experience of the restaurant was no better. Our main courses price...

Stunning Setting, Stunned Hotel

by NoPlaceLikeHome58 on 24 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We checked in to our "Mountain View" room to find the mountain over the roof of another building. What we were shown on the website was not what we got. When Mrs. reported this to the front desk she was told, "You can see the mountain, can't you?" Kinda rude. The room was OK but there was visible black mold around the skylight in the bathroom. Being from Florida, USA we know what mold is. Housekeeping promptly arrived and scrubbed it with cleaner. The mold was still there, but at least any acti...

Above and beyond

by Dana S on 21 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Our fourth visit to O'Reilly's was just as awesome as the first three and what really shone this time was the staff. We have generally had excellent service every time we stay (usually 3 nights) and always come away feeling very well cared for. This time was no exception when my car broke down on the day we were checking out. Steve from activities has only joined the team recently but he was absolutely brilliant in trying to get the car started and then towing it for me to a place accessible by...

Having had a few visits to O'Reilly's it is time to give it a review.

by ChrisMoffatt54 on 18 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Usually, we go on one of the walking trails, which are amazing. However, early this week, we drove up at twilight to have a meal at the restaurant. For once, the road wasn't busy and the changing light on the mountain made everything glow.The brilliant cooks, Vipin and Raki (yes, we asked to meet them) made delectable food. None of our group was disappointed. Raki's mango cheesecake is beautifully presented and made me want to bring friends back for more.The wait staff were so helpful and friend...

Beautiful Views + 4WD Laughter

by WAT4tem on 17 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

The drive up to O'Reillys at circa 1100M / 3500ft was a delight for me, the driver, but Management (my wife) was tired and not so sure. The view from our (tired) room was beautiful and the multi coloured "parrot" visitors to the balcony came to say hello. This is an excellent place for walkers. Oh to be young again to do more walks though the walk through the tree tops was fun but then there is always the 4WD. There are a number of other activities to try if you stay longer, but do not miss the...
