      The location was great, the staff and facilities were as advertised.

      The room we stayed in had a really bad smell, seems from someone cooking. The smell was all over the kitchen area and in the plates and amenities.

      The private spa was the best attribute!

      I think another couch in the room would have been lovely as it was for a family and one couch for two adults to sit on was a tight squeeze :)

      Very clean warm & tidy very obliging host. Great to get a morning paper at the door.

    • Family with children

      Had everything we needed, was quiet and off the main road with parking right outside the door. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Also tollerant given we were out in the BBQ area quite late and they never complained and even supplied and cleaned up utensils for the BBQ. For the price we paid, we were very impressed with what we received and would definately stay there again.

      About the only thing was found was a problem was there was only one small washing machine and dryer. The weekend we went was pouring with rain and we were attending a soccer tournament and found it hard to get out clothes dry.
