The room was very nice. We had a very relaxing and comfortable overnight stay. Only one complaint, not enough toilet paper.

Hi Glenn, Very pleased to see you enjoyed your stay. Apologies for toilet paper, there is usually a spare under the sink. Our hotel staff are happy to get a roll for you if that happens again

Had a little bit of trouble getting my 4WD into the parking spot for unit 8 with all the other cars there (had to reverse it in), but otherwise great as usual:)

A litte bit more difficult to get to the rooms now with the looped driveway partially closed, but still great :)

Sadly our hands were tied with this one as we needed outdoor dining to be an option. We hope the outdoor area will eventually be worth the hassle

Not suited to overnight travellers, more of a hostel/resort setting, hard to find our way around after hard day driving.

The guy at reception was friendly, and the only positive thing there. Checking in required walking through a crowded bar (not what you want after a lengthy drive). The room was dated and basic. The mattress and pillows were saggy. Huge cobwebs filled the corner near the aircon, and the mouldy shower was completed with a mouldy shower curtain. The bistro staff were unpleasant and refused to bring my meals over to my room (despite plenty of staff standing around with sour looks and doing nothing. The meals were cheap and awful, and ridiculously overpriced. Being served spaghetti bolognese with TINNED bolognese and being charged $20 for it is disgraceful. Overall, a really disappointing and overpriced stay. Absolutely do NOT recommend.
