I accidentally booked the "riverside" which is next door. After explaining to staff - they gave me the online discounted price and upgraded me. The room with a view was amazing - walking distance to Breakfast Creek Hotel. The breakfast was delightful and I can't recommend this property highly enough. Good for singles and couples. Big thanks to Margaret the... More
