TravelPod Member ReviewsSails On Horseshoe Magnetic Island
The Sails on Horseshoe is a great spot to stay at the lovely Horseshoe Bay on Magnetic Island.
The hosts, Chris and Alastair, are lovely people who are extremely gracious and accommodating.
The rooms are spacious townhouses, over two levels, which are just lovely. The beds were comfortable and it was great having a bathtub!
There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and I'd highly recommend this hotel!
