I went last night 25th May, with a group for the apprentice chef's dinner, all the waitresses were very friendly, and everyone enjoyed their 3 course "Restaurant Quality" meal, which only cost $25 person, at the end of the evening the head chef paraded the apprentice chefs who finish their course in 2 weeks at the front of restaurant, all...

If you are looking for Place that is comfortable and clean for a short overnight stay this is a good option. The rooms aren't overly huge and when you pull up look like a dorm complex. It is though only a place to sleep and the beds where good and the rooms where clean. Just a warning though the walls...

Stayed here after A Day On The Green. Great experience from the outset. Ladies at reception were very warm and welcoming. Room itself had a king size bed, tv and a great sized bathroom, and a fantastic big shower! Room itself is small, but for a bed for the night it was perfect. Very clean and tidy. Would definitely stay...

A wedding in the Hunter Valley which coincided with a major event nearby meant that we ended up staying here instead of closer to the wedding venue. It was probably a blessing in disguise as we got a good rate and got to try something a little different! On driving in we were greeted by 3 kangaroos bounding across the...

When I arrived I thought what an odd place but it's part of the Tafe campus so looked like a school dorm on the outside but inside the rooms were really quite nice. Modern little rooms with a huge bathroom. Lots of parking space and if your staying here would reccomended having a vehicle as its alittle away from town...

The walls are paper thin and are like dormitory rooms. I wanted to leave at 11pm because I could hear every word of the next rooms conversation. When we arrived there were teens and empty alcohol cans everywhere upon entry to the common area. We Paid $165 for a room worth $40

A surprise on the outskirts of Kurri Kurri NSW. Excellent accommodation & staff were amazing and nothing was too difficult for them to do. We stayed 4 nights, attended a wedding there & another family function a few days later. The grounds are amazing & would suite a young family with energetic children as there is lots of space to...

My boyfriend and i stayed here and were very impressed. Not hard to find very good size room and very clean. So easy. We had a very good price for the long weekend and so easy to deal with! Only thing was bit out of the way but with a car is fine! Loved it!

Recently visited this establishment for work purposes, and found that the accommodation at nominal three star standard was scrupulously clean ,easy, quiet, and its setting promoted thought, reflection and gentle conversation. Shared bathrooms were plenty, and wee kitchenettes good, as were spaces to work (think long desks and chairs, and spaces to dwell. The bushland setting is well-maintained and there...

We (two couples) stayed for one night in one of the cottages. The cottage had three bedrooms with four single beds, two bathrooms with a separate toilet, open lounge/dining/kitchen with full fridge and microwave but no other cooking facilities. The cottages appear to usually be used as student accommodation and are in a quiet area separated from the hotel. The...
