Parking unavoidably somewhat inaccessible for $17 a day, probably should be free. Online hotel information suggests NGA is only 800 metres walk - really more like 1800.

Good, quiet location close to restaurants and the lake. Tesla E charger available. Big problem was outdated plumbing in the heritage wing. Takes forever to get hot water and then cuts in and out during a Luke warm shower. Obviously a known problem as we were told to run the basin tap before the shower. Installing additional hot water infrastructure and pipe insulation clearly needed.

We enjoyed the history of the property and that historical figures had stayed there, plus that it was covered with plenty of photographs and stories of past prime ministers. On the downside, the food at the restaurant wasn't much to write home about, and there was no hotel information booklet in the room, which we'd expected to help us navigate our way around the hotel, and its amenities, as well as the local area. Additionally, it would have been good to have had some assistance with local attractions. That said, the staff were super pleasant and polite and the stay on the whole was very nice. Thank you.

Long wait to get checked in only one person on counter which was on phone. Was told parking is $17.00 but wasn’t guaranteed a park. We had an interconnected room as I had 2 kids with me, nice rooms but tiny the room I stayed in the bathroom stunk. Once I walked in and smelt it I knew it was the drain. The fridge constantly rattled and was so loud to sleep. I don’t think for the price $400 I paid for the night it was worth it. The in room dining was rubbish. $5 for a glass of lemonade which was full of ice. Had half a can of lemonade Normally they would bring the can up with the left over lemonade. Nope! Have to pay a service fee for in room dining. Kids had to sit on floor to eat as the tiny table was not big enough. Menu not kid friendly at all. Had to pay extra to use a credit card found that out after I paid the reception never mentioned that. Breakfast was just off menu. As soon as I got to the room I knew I should have booked else where. Was disappointing to bring to kids away and the hotel not have a Buffett. Wouldn’t recommend
