While this is considered to be budget accommodation I had a deluxe room, the bed was really comfortable and the room was clean and quiet. There was parking available at no additional charge, the pool area was clean and looked inviting. The staff were lovely and very willing to make sure that everything was right for me and my breakfast...

On the positive side, we found the room acceptable and the staff seemed friendly. However don't leave anything behind by mistake as you may not see it again.

When we arrived, the allocated room hadn't been cleaned from the previous occupants and there was no cleaner on site to sort this out.

We found the staff friendly and helpful. The room was great for our stay. The drive to Nelson Bay is effortless. The area has great sites and restaurants. It is only a short drive to the Hunter wineries.

Absolutely TERRIBLE room,stained carpet and sofas and a strong urine smell and dead cockroaches on carpet.That was room 301 so I wonder how many other rooms are in the same condition.No way it's 4 Star maybe half a star.

We stopped here for a night and had a great stay. The pool is refreshing and the restaurant makes some amazing oriental food! The rooms are nice and the on site parking is also good. One great benefit was the free guest laundry that we took advantage of.
