Apologies re smell, we wash all our towels and pillow covers ourselves and sheets go to laundry - washed everyday - it was a very busy weekend for the Wagga Cup with groups of people staying in rooms - difficult to keep noise down when people enjoying themselves but we did do a walkthrough late at night and everything was quiet. Regards Robin

Wow thats the first time we have heard that, apologies for that, it is raining in Wagga for the first time in many many months, could be creating a musty smell. We will look into it for you. Regards Robin
