The property is noticable old style which was appealing when booking. The staff and resturant was great but the room had a definate mold smell about it. This spoiled our experience and the shower curtain definately needed to be replaced.

Dear Christopher, Thank-you for your support, we do appreciate you sharing your thoughts. We do regret that the stay didn't meet your expectations.

We had a lovely stay, didn't even mind the renovations happening above us! A beautiful spot right by the Amusement park, peaceful and we had a relaxing midweek getaway. I can't wait to see what the place looks like renovated, it's looking great so far! Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We are keen to get back soon!

The history of the building was lovely. Close proximity to city. Dated and noisy due to the hotel next door. The Penny Royal adventure park only open on weekends was disappointing as we were unable to participate in that and the website doesn't advise if this.

Dear Craig, Thank-you for your support, we appreciate your feedback. You'll be pleased to know we are updating in-room fixtures and fittings later this year so if you do choose to stay again you will notice a difference once those works are complete. With regards

Beautiful looking property, with great activities to do (zip lining, suspension bridge). Kids loved it. Fantastic position. Bathroom needed a bit of work-towel rack kept falling out of bracket and the shelf in the shower was not attached properly, making it unusable.
