I was great being so close to Echo Point I could just walk there and see the 3 Sisters. Even though the weather was cold outside, the heating worked well and so did the electric blankets. We definitely were NOT cold staying here.

Great location. Room was nice and large. The only problem we had was the lack of hot water to fill the spa bath that I paid extra for. We had to boil the kettle a number of times to add to the bath.

We were running late and would arrive after checkin so we called up and got a guy called steve who was very helpful. He gave us instructions on how to check in late and even provided advice on dinner options and left a map in our room pointing out attractions in the area. Thanks Steve.
