Nice getaway but could have been better

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Stephanie Couples - 10/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Was a nice experience, a little disappointed with the room. Was a bit dated and very basic, expected more for the price I paid.

Clean, comfortable and quiet

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

deenabpd Couples - 10/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Clean, comfortable & quiet room. Nice little treat with some chocolates and water in the room. Wonderful cooked hot breakfast to order, plus buffet style breakfast, all inclusive. Didn't get to use the pool and other facilities as it was a quick overnight stay but would like to stay again and use it all.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Candy Couples - 09/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Staff were great and overall the hotel was nice. Just not up to Pullman standard. Bed was awful and the room was just not as polished as I would expect from a Pullman.

Ticked all of our boxes!

Loved the home liked concept, not boxed into a room/suite. I would like the furniture to be comfortable and inviting. It's rather tired and needed updating to modern taste.

Corporate Off-site

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Chris S. Business - 03/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Good accommodation. Units could have done with some mats for wiping your feet and some umbrellas. Food supplied for breakfast and morning tea for the offsite was hopelessly inadequate from a quantity perspective. Maybe that was due to under ordering? Food ordered a la carte at the restaurant was great, but that served at the all in dinner pretty average, no vegetables etc.

Great accommodation

Looks good on the outside, but don't be fooled

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Culture05574602220 Couples - 03/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

For what is supposed to be 5 Star, it is sub 3. The room felt like a Novotel not Pullman quality. It turns out that the accom is strata owned and that means if the person/people who own your room dont bother to keep it up to standard, you get ripped off. So incredibly rubbish from Accor perspective. The restaurant was cold, so poorly lit that most folk had to use the table candle or their phone to read the menu. Not that that takes long as there such as small selection of meals to choose from. They falsely advertise a "full buffet" breakfast, when in reality it is a continental breakfast and you can order only 1 item of a set menu, which is again so poorly lacking in selection options. They only supply you with one barista coffee and if you want more then it is pod only. As mentioned in the title, it looks great on the outside, but what was once i suspect a true 5 star experience has been diluted over time, but they still charge 5 star. When I raised my concerns at check out, they promised to pass on the feedback to the manager and I requested to have the manager call me to personally discuss. Some weeks on I still have not received a call, which is not surprising and in keeping with the general tone the resort. Having said that, I will commend one staff member, Adam who was on reception. He was the only one with a 5 star attitude, thanks you Adam for you great service. There were numerous other things that highlighted the true sub 3 star nature of Magenta Shores, without listing the, my hope it that this serves to strongly discourage anyone potentially interested in wasting your money at this rubbish establishment. Unfortunately the rating system doesn't allow you choose less than 1 out of 5.

Dear Culture0557460220, Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on your stay we want all of our guests to experience an exceptional stay so your feedback is important to us. We are disappointed to read that your experience did not meet expectations and we are working through your points now as a team to improve. Firstly thank you for your feedback on Adam our Guest Relations Manager we agree he is outstanding and a valued member of our management team. Please accept my sincerest apologies that you felt our breakfast offering was misconceived. It is a Pullman Brand standard to have a full continental buffet and then offer our guest's a la carte fresh to order eggs your way and of course several other options like benedict, Pullmans breakfast plate, omelette's etc. It is rare we get feedback on our offering most guests like the option of ordering their own eggs fresh however, we are happy to review this at our next strategy meeting. Please know that we have already implemented (1 week ago) further lighting in our Restaurant terrace section and we will continue in our refurbishment to address lighting. Our dinner menu has 19 selection items along with nightly specials however, i am happy for any feedback on what you would like to see. My apologies i was not aware to follow up and would certainly like to speak with you should you wish H8791-gm@accor.com or 4352 8101. Sincerely, Belinda Paterson General Manager

My stay could not be more amazing.

Nice but nothing special

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Sarah S. Couples - 30/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We were excited to drive from down south to spend the night at the resort and even more excited when we were asked what we were celebrating, two birthdays and a 6 month count down until our wedding day. Maybe we shouldn’t have assumed but after being asked thought something special might be present upon our arrival or something might be out if he ordinary. Upon arriving we were told we had a golf course view room which we were looking forward to, having some drinks and afternoon tea on the verandah over looking the golf course, however, a golf view room was just a room looking into a big tree. Whilst the weather is not controlled by the resort, even if we want to enjoy our view of the tree, we couldn’t because the verandah doesn’t even have a cover on it, we were then stuck in our room all afternoon not being able to enjoy what we had envisaged. We did however, have a lovely meal at the restaurant that night. Overall we were disappointed but held our heads high and look forward to another Accor hotel.
