From experience, When booking Car F is probably the most convenient as its closest to the Buffet Car although you still have to go through by car E which has disabled facilities.
Recommending we all stay at:
Island Leisure Resort which is 3 minutes walk to the beach and 10 min to the Ferry Terminal. Resort location is at No. 6 Kelly Street Nelly Bay.
I spoke with the owner and she runs a nice homely resort avoiding back packers and noisy revelers.
All rooms have cooking facilities and there is a billiard table we can use.
Only in house guests are allowed on the property so we cannot invite members if they stay elsewhere.
The rate based on 3 night stay is $140 per night for a double or twin room for 2 people.
Some rooms can have an extra single bed making it 3 persons but that will cost an additional $50. ($190 per night)
Please call Jenny on[masked] mentioning CSG and book early as they only have 17 rooms. http://www.islandleisure.com.au/
