The staff were nice and friendly, the place was easy to find, the cabin was lovely but the linen on the bed wasn’t clean as there was a couple of what appeared to be bloodstains on the doona that we found and they looked like they might of been there awhile, And the wifi didn’t work either

Stayed in a river view cabin, amazing views. Arrived late, lights were turned on, aircon was on heating the cabin for when we arrived. We will be staying here again, next time for longer.

The cabin we stayed in was so nice and had everything you need even a washer and dryer. The beds were so comfortable and the cabin was very spacious considering we had 6 people. Excellent!!!

We were initially disappointed with our economy cabin with external ensuite due to the inconvenience of the outside bathroom (and the swarms of flies and other creepy-crawlies that came in with us). We then upgraded to a superior cabin with a great view of the river. Perfect! Much quieter location, larger internal area and patio, no more bugs! Staff were very accommodating when we asked for an upgrade also. Were very polite overall and nothing was too much trouble!
