The front desk staff were lovely and very friendly. The restaurant which is advertised has been closed for some time. This should be adjusted on the advertising. The room was dirty with cobwebs and the shower recess was very mouldy. Although the room was attended to each day, the crockery was stained with tea and coffee rings etc..

It was great to have a swimming pool to cool off in with the 47 degree heat.

The lady at reception is rude we didn’t need to hear twice during our stay how Wotif charge extra and the money goes to America and doesn’t stay in Australia if she doesn’t like it why have her resort listed with Wotif overall state of facilities is neglected and dirty much better and cheaper places in Lightning Ridge
