Comfortable, clean and affordable room. Friendly staff. Breakfast was reasonable, great buffet. Didn't realise there was an Indoor pool, didn't bring my swim wear. Unfortunately the Foxtel connection in room was crap!

A Lovely stay, warm and friendly staff, very clean pool and great little gym area. Rooms and bathrooms clean and comfortable. Only negative is they didn't cater well for gluten free so be sure to take back up supplies or order out.
