What a great place! Everything was perfect. Pub next door is fabulous and has the biggest kids play area I have ever seen! The pool is perfect. They do need to have a go at fixing the doors though. We will be looking forward to going back.

Couldn't fault check-in, but my room 101 smelt dirty and musty I had to go out and buy a spray to try and get rid of the smell but didn't work. Air conditioner might need a service first night had it on only sometimes you could feel cool air so we were hot all night wasn't consistent. Was close to a Woolworths, about a 7min drive to town center.
