The only thing we didn't like was the archaic TV system. Apart from local free to air channels all that was available was the dinosaur version of Foxtel with virtually no decent channels able to be viewed. They need to update to a system whereby one can access streaming services that guests are subscribed to.

Pros- bed was soft and room was clean. Bathroom is modern. Cons- Toilet paper felt like sandpaper. Shower soap dish has a big hole in the middle and they give you round bars of soap which just fall straight through the hole! Like why. The view from room 26 is horrible. And at $390 a night felt like a cash grab for the long weekend more then anything else! Room and service definitely isn’t worth that price.

Property was clean and easy to get to. We only stayed one night, but the bed was comfy, the room was large and the place was clean. Can’t ask for any more than that.
