While waiting for my room to be ready I waited on a sofa in the lounge area, only to get up and realise that the cushion was wet. Smelled it and realised it was urine - not impressed. Brought it to the attention of the manager only for her to just say sorry (no offer to wash jeans or any... More

On arrival on 13th Aug we got a musty smelling small supposedly superior " renovated " room. When we complained we were moved to a similar room but without the musty smell at least. The rooms look nothing like the ones advertised, and whoever they payed to renovate them must be laughing all the way to the bank... Linoleum in... More

I really wish I knew about this place earlier! We dropped in for an overnight stay, hoping they had a room spare (and they did..yay!). it was a magnificent hotel with a huge room, and to our surprise there was golf, and a swimming pool too. If I knew about this great hotel in advance I would have booked 2-3... More

We got a 2 night deal (B&B + 1 Dinner) at the end of July. We got upgraded to a Premier Room as all the family rooms were booked out. This room was an average hotel room but I think it was recently refurbished hence it was called an upgrade. It had 2 double beds in it which suited us,... More

A very good family venue but very busy and very noisy. Heaps for children to do and the food was very good both at the family restuarant and Shenanigans bar. All staff were polite and the service good. Stay was spoiled by late night party goers, also the wifi was unreliable. Reasonable value for money but would suggest you visit... More
