          Toilet stench emanated across the site. Exploitive credit surcharge of 4.4% is unprofessional. No workable internet. $7 for. Light beer. Apparently restaurant food is great.

          We didn't get to stay long, just for a coffee, but it's a nice looking place. Staff are very friendly & it is so relaxing & quiet. Great little bar area. Only 90 minutes from Alice Springs. Would be worth staying a night or 2.
