This accommodation is NOT a "resort". The "family" room included mould in the shower recess, on curtains and ceiling fans. No handle on full-sized fridge, dangerously "hanging" power-boards, edging missing from rusty-legged dining table, numerous scuff and dirty marks on the walls. Cutlery was "thrown" onto the shelf of the cupboard with dirty "Hannah Montana" drinking glasses. Only one small... More

Photos did not match in real life. When booked did not give good details of what was in room thought we had a/c but no only a couple of rooms have a/c. We booked for 4 nights and we only stayed 1 night and moved hotels we could not stay there any longer.

Very grubby rooms and very unhygienic as we had to wash delph and cutlery in bathroom sink. Thick layer of dust on curtains and furniture. We had to buy Glen 20 to disinfect everything and also buy disposable... More

We went shopping and came back to not be able to go to our room. Once we were in the room, no toilet paper, that wasn't a biggy, just thought someone... More

The lady who owns and runs this hotel is lovely. A really, genuine Aussie woman who is happy to help in anyway. The room we stayed in was a queen with a single bed. Quite large. Clean and tidy. There is a 32 inch television. Excellent water pressure. A small fridge that was nice and chilly. A small table suitable... More
