Good comfortable stay close to everything

Lovely pool and spa area ...close enough to main cbd area. We were disappointed we missed the restaurant because it was closed on a sunday but weve heard great things about the food from locals.. would be great set up for a function or large group event.

Good rest area, nice and quiet

Pros: Great parking, quiet, clean.
Cons: Food could be little better with something smaller and lighter provided
Location: A good look at what the area has for the locals to make a living
Stayed 2 nights, easy to find, staff friendly and helpful.
