Stayed here for 3 nights on a coach tour and was delighted with the hotel. Large bedroom with double and single bed and plenty of room including atable and chairs. Staff were all lovely and friendly. Impressive reception area and lovely bar with entertainment. Will definitely go again, they do some great deals for the over 55s. Check it out!

Couldn't get into a Harveys Point and Castle Eske as they were full so ended up in this hotel...

The lady working in restaurant perhaps the... More
