Staff were friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable. The only downside was that the shower was never very hot.

It was good value for money over all. There was a small (bigger than a bar fridge) and a microwave in the room. there is a very small table cramped into the dormer window recess with two chairs. no iron or ironing board which was an issue for me on this trip. no air conditioning but did have a squeaky pedestal fan which on a hot night does not do a good job. It did have both an electric and oil heater for the colder winter nights.I was in the cottage with very creaky cramped stairs to your room. can be an issue with a large case. Very tricky top stem that could cause an issue if you are not careful. parking is off street but difficult with a larger car. I stayed in at night to make sure I had a parking space which was an issue for me. it is clean and well serviced. A small pool will be great in those hot days. Staff were good and it is close to the city and larger shops (Coles and 24 hour Kmart).
