  • The Grove Establishment
    Restaurants    Ashgrove, QLD

    Popped in for a cold drink after work with some colleagues recently at the downstairs bar and had a nice catch up sitting outside and enjoying a cold bubbles.
    Staff were friendly and it was no problem to start a tab going for the afternoon.

  • Sinartra's Italian Restaurant
    Restaurants    Broadbeach, QLD

    Loving the half price pizza lunch menu!
    Enjoyed the 5 meat pizza and it was lovely.
    Base maybe could have done with a couple more minutes cooking time but toppings were generous and really tasty.
    Went in for lunch, but as it was quiet they were only allowing takeaway, so we couldn't stay - but will be back to try again.

  • Aruba Surf Resort
    Serviced Apartments    Broadbeach, QLD

    Comfortable stay and walking distance to everything that Broadbeach has to offer, including the great beaches and fabulous dining on offer.
    It's an older style GC unit, but well maintained, clean and has everything you need for a self-contained visit whilst on the Gold Coast.
    Parking is undercover and secure and check-in at Reception is easy.
    There's no lift so you'll get a little workout depending on how many times you walk the stairs each day,

  • Mercure
    Hotels    Maitland, NSW

    Always a comfortable stay at the Maitland Mercure.
    Rooms are generous in size and there's ample car parking.
    Bathrooms are always clean, with basics provided.
    It's a short walk to the Braddie Hotel, McDonald's or Oporto for local meals and easy access to main arterial roads.
    Staff are always friendly on check in and check out.

  • Hertz
    Car Rental    Williamtown, NSW

    Recently picked up a little Corolla here for a three day road trip. Booking was exactly as specified and all went smoothly and quickly.
    Happy with the service and will be back.

  • K & K Cafe Restaurant
    Restaurants    Sinnamon Park, QLD

    Enjoyed a lovely omelette here for a working brekky, with a latte.
    Staff were very friendly and attentive,
    This venue has been used a few times for corporate meetings and we're happy to continue coming.
    Austrian goodies on the menu - will have to try the schnitzel and strudel some time!

  • Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre
    Venues & Event Spaces    Broadbeach, QLD

    I've been to a few conferences, a concert and exhibitions at the GCCEC and it's really conveniently located in Broadbeach. T
    here's lots of onsite parking that isn't ridiculously priced and it's really easy to navigate your way around the centre. The wireless is good too.

  • Hank Dining & Bar
    Restaurants    Broadbeach, QLD

    This is a lovely new addition to the foodie scene in Broadbeach.
    We enjoyed a corporate dinner at Hank for 16 people and the food and service were great. There were lots of 'tastes' of various flavours like chicken and beef cheeks for our main, and we finished with either sticky date or creme brulee.
    Really nice night - I will be back!

  • Santos Organics
    Health Markets    Byron Bay, NSW

    This is great for everyone who takes a serious interest in their health.
    Like all organic stores, nothing is too cheap, but there's heaps of options to suit all who have food preferences, allergies, intolerances or just want the best.
    The juice bar is another good stop in Byron.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Seven Hills, NSW

    This is a busy noisy Maccas but was a convenient stop for a cuppa and banana bread for brekky on a recent road trip.
    Plenty of parking and both indoor and outdoor seating available.
    Big play area for the kids too.

  • Novotel Sydney Central
    Hotels    Haymarket, NSW

    I usually have a lovely experience at a Novotel but this one was a little weird.
    I was lucky enough to be upgraded to Accor Gold status recently and lined up in the priority check in queue.
    As I approached the counter, I was apologised to as the concierge called over and served two other customers from the other line first.
    All good, I wasn't in a hurry, but not sure now of the purpose of the queue anyway??
    My room was on the 16th floor and fairly standard for an older hotel. However there was a wet patch on the carpet outside the bathroom that never dried.
    I was also undressed and ready to jump in the shower when I noticed I had been given no towels. I called housekeeping and waited around for 10 minutes, before showering anyway and drying off with a bath mat!
    The onsite restaurant Field House was nice and parking is really convenient as it let me have multiple entries.
    But it's the following day... and I still haven't seen those towels!

  • The Strand Arcade
    General Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Love the old world beauty of The Strand Arcade in Sydney.
    The building is beautifully maintained and has lots of great little shops to browse through from jewelry to men's and women's wear, tea and accessories.
    Always worth a visit.

  • Duo Jewellery
    Jewellery & Watch Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Can't believe I forgot to pack earrings on my last Sydney trip, so just had to buy some new ones.
    Duo was a great find and I added two new pairs to my collection.
    Very happy!
    Lovely friendly staff.

  • Haigh's Chocolates
    Confectionery    Sydney, NSW

    Ok, so I tried to walk past, but just couldn't! The peppermint dark Choc frogs were calling me... and the dark scorched almonds as a sample were pretty good too.
    Lovely store and friendly staff.

  • Dymocks
    Bookstores    Sydney, NSW

    Wow! If you can't find something interesting in here, you're not looking hard enough!
    I only did a tour of the ground floor and it covered books, audio books, stationery, gifts, cards, magazines, gift bags, wrapping and more.
    Almost overwhelming!!

  • Hotel CBD
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    Enjoyed a lovely couple of drinks and a chicken parmy with girlfriends at Hotel CBD for lunch on a Friday. Don't head in too long after 12 or it'll be hard to find a seat.
    Fine dining upstairs if you prefer.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Rutherford, NSW

    Convenient location when I stay over the road at Mercure Maitland, to drop in for a quick brekky on my road trips.
    Only $5.50 for a coffee and toasted sammy, so good value.
    Cheese not melted and barely warm bread but a cheaper way to start the day than a $25 hotel brekky!

  • Wickham Motorcycle Cafe
    Cafes    Wickham, NSW

    Enjoyed a really lovely brekky bruschetta here with a latte. Great ambiance at the cafe.
    Lots of bikes, memorabilia, parts and even a photo booth and souvenir shirts.
    Fresh herbs grow in cut up tyres and a garden bed out front and the coffee is great.
    A very cool find in Newcastle.

  • Fratelli Roma
    Restaurants    Maitland, NSW

    This is a fantastic addition to the emerging foodie scene in Maitland.
    Fresh pasta made daily and beautiful attention to detail.
    My chicken parmy was lovely and so filling... and the Creme brle was fantastic.
    I will be back!
    There's a wine menu (not too many by the glass) or BYO.

  • Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat
    Holiday Resorts    Tallebudgera, QLD

    Recently attended a 3 day retreat at Gwinganna with 50 amazing women and the whole experience was first class.
    Whether you're looking for physical, emotional or spiritual wellbeing, bush walks, yoga, detox, guidance on organic foods, or to indulge with spa treatments, this place has something for everyone!
    Would thoroughly recommend and hope to return soon.
