We had a room with access directly off the car park and due to Friday trade at Dan Murphy’s parking spaces were hard to find. We had shopping trolleys left by the door, lots of people hanging around the car park after the bar closed, broken glass and I think blood outside our door on Saturday morning. I was happy to see the car wasn’t damaged as I half expected it to be stripped for parts during the night.

This is one of the best kept secrets in town! 2 Storey and rather cute 'townhouse' style accommodation to the rear of the hotel and facing away from the main road. Complete with balcony (I stayed in Apt 10 overlooking the swimming pool), mod-cons such as washing machine, and a very comfortable bed. Crisp clean linen and a spotless bathroom and kitchen. The stay was made complete by the friendly and generously kind service of receptionist Amy. A must stay!
