I took my fiencè for his birthday Australia day. When we walked into the room, the floor looked like it hadnt been vacuumed. The toilet seat was broken, the shower scolded me when I got in & it was very slippery, could not get the water to either not burn me or go so cold it was like ice, not even a bath tub in the room. Im disabled as I've had a severe stroke & was quite disapointed with the whole weekend. One of the receptionists was very rude to my partner when he took back the DVD player we were kindly allowed to borrow. People had their dogs in one of the rooms & that kept barking, yelping & crying almost all night. Sorry but was not a very nice experience for the $340 I payed, im on the pension & vant afford to waste money like that, was terrible. Thank you for your time in reading this. Xx

Thank you for your review Kimm. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay here with us, we had placed you in a renovated room in the hope your stay would be more enjoyable. I'm also very sorry about the noise from the dog, we do have a night manager on site every night to deal with matters like that. We do hope you will give us another chance.

When it said free WiFi they should have stipulated it was capped! We ran out of WiFi within 2 hours of arriving.

Thank you for your review. Please note our wifi is free of charge, and there is a limit per room that will automatically cut out to monitor usage, but please be aware this is a very high amount per room... Had you contacted reception we would have been more than happy t o add some more.

Very clean, but slightly dated. Bathroom was spotless and the shower had fabulous pressure

The size of the room was awesome. Much bigger than what we expected. Fantastic for a family, and gentle to the budget.
