Tiny little room we had, although I think there were better rooms than we had. Only stayed one night for a party that I attended. You wouldn't want to stay in this room a minute longer than you had too

Very pleased with our first stay in Australia. Extremely polite and helpful staff. After a 24hr flight we needed time to chill and that we did. Very comfortable bed and quiet location until about 6am. At that point the local trains sounded their horns every 30mins (a wake up call was not required). Our ONLY issue was the shower thermostat...

Dear Rich850, It was a pleasure to look after you during your stay with us. Our property is conveniently located only 400 meters away from the train station and early morning being so quiet generally makes slightly difficult for our rooms at the back. Your comments regarding the thermostat have been taken on board and are being looked at as... More

This is a lovely property. I had a room at the back near the fountain and it felt very private. Room was big and it had a bath-luxury. Pool was just big enough and clean. Gym is well equipped. I did not try out the restaurant, toaster in room is nice touch. Need to ask for plates and knife though.... More
