The place is quite run down once you get inside the apartments. We had to move as the shower was leaking into the downstairs bedroom. The staff were lovely but it doesn't hide the fact that the hotel needs some serious repairs done to it.

Booked 3 nights for over the easter break. Did the homework and read the reviews. Unfortunately , the reviews didnt match the actual accomadation. All reviews suggested a clean, lovely environmemt. When we walked in...yep its dated but .. Kitchenette area left a lot to be desired. It was like the floor hadnt seen a vacuum since the last three bookings. Rubbish bin was disgusting, please give it a wash. The walls and dining table where splattered with months old food, etc. Bathroom amenties...omg nothing like going on a well deserved break and looking forward to getting home for a shower. Water presssure poor, a fan to reduce condesation but unless your 6 feet tall cant turn it on. Adjoining toilet , well if you house 4 teenage boys, you can understand the smell of stale urine. Beds were clean and comfortable, but concerning that in the bedroom you couldnt fully shut the window Overall , dissapointed. Such a lovely location, with huge potential, so close to everything that lahnceston offers.

We stayed 3 nights with our family is 5, children aged 4, 5 and 7.Our room itself was very clean, well stocked with towels, extra blankets etc as well as tea and coffee. The facilities are somewhat aged, the shower door was very difficult to slide and one window wouldn't close properly. These were the only let downs and to be honest were only minor. The rest of our stay was positive. Staff were very personable and happy to help with anything, the heated pool was a hit with the kids and the continental breakfast was perfect, especially for $5 ahead. All in all a lovely stay and would happily stay again.
