The common areas have been upgraded but the room was seriously dated and falling apart. Unessesary dangerous height (6 foot) metal poles from the bathroom ceiling. Noise is an issue with every sound from reception coming down the corridor as with people walking, the person next door breathing etc, possibly the thinnest walls ever used in construction. Staff were nice and breakfast good.

What a difficult time these lovely properties are having with getting staff. Room wasn’t quite ready but we were offered free drinks as an apology. Cosy lounge to sit in, very clean, comfortable bed and room. Restaurant was good, great location. Laundry onsite for $5/wash & $5/dry which is handy when travelling.

Room hadn’t been updated since the 1970s and was very basic, however price (without breakfast!) was similar to a 5 star city hotel. Location was good for access to the national park but it was WAY overpriced.

For a stay that I consider to be deemed high end the 15 minute wait at reception for someone to check us in was not a great start. They have scotch fillet on the menu however served sirloin, fatty, grisly and no way was 200g. Ordered the steak medium for my wife and myself, both steaks turned up "Blue" any colour to say it had seen a grill. Advised the staff and no action was taken. It is a busy hotel (as you can expect) however one poor staff member was left to tend the bar on her own and could not keep up the demand, not that she showed much interest. Overall a nice location and beautiful hotel, staff and service need some attention to detail.

A great place to stay in the area. Room was clean and tidy with a nice view overlooking the local bushland. Staff were friendly and helpful. Make sure to book in at the restaurant - the food is good. But the room service/bar menu is pretty average.
