There is no elevator to get to your room so you have to drag your suitcase up and down the stairs. The bathroom is badly designed with the toilet behind the door if the door was opened by someone whilst you were sitting on the toilet you would get your legs smashed.

Nice hotel on the water with good food. But the room was a little out dated. The TV was old, which we ended up having to use alot of because of the snow from the fires.

I was disappointed to find that my ‘waters edge’ room meant I was down a rabbit warren, into a very old part of the hotel. Like an old motor inn. The rooms had a great view, but felt very very tired. Didn’t look like the picture at all.

Room is a bit normal. Old TV. Tgey have 2 channels for new movies but on the TV they look like stolen version. Stuff is amazing . Just the last night was a disaster. Fire everywhere on the state (not the hotel problem I understand) the problem is when the AC got broken and the stuff just lodge a job for us saying that all the rooms are occupied and that is why the AC got broken. It was really a tough night. Had a breakfast one day on the open buffet really 1 out of 5 food quality still kind staff but bad food. The good thing is that we ignored all that and enjoyed Tasmania. It is a great place
