Pretty good for the price. Parking is ridiculous and a bit of lawn maintenance wouldn’t go a stray, overall okay for a short stay.

5 out of 5
Well presented , very tidy , room was spacious and cosy , bed was comfortable, has a nice little cafe on site which is really convenient,they send you links on booking for room service etc so easy and convenient to use , only negative I can give which isn't any fault of there's is the parking there is plenty of it as well as a charging station for testers which is awesome ,but those huge 4x4 utes and wagons take up more than one park and hang out of them so made it really hard to manoeuvre the car Into a space when it's full and you have a large 4x4 either side of you and one in the middle of them on opposite side . Those cars should be parked down the back so smaller cars can get in, (not like it would be like that all the time ) other than that it's great will definitely be back next time we travel down :)
