The bar has been refurbished, and the drink selection will be mind boggling. We have also installed a chocolate... More

I stayed here for two nights with 2 of my children on the Friday 31st August and 1st September 2012. It was me (one adult), my 15 yr old teenage son and 9yr old daughter. We loved our stay at The Whitt. The room was small, but it was entirely adequate for our needs. It's so close to the Bourke... More

We stayed here recently and not being a snow person did it off the net sight unseen. The room was 2 star but fine apart from no lock on the window and it was ground floor.

We stayed in the Whitt. The staff are brilliant: experienced, mature, and helpful. Importantly they run a very tight and highly professional operation. We couldn't fault them. The... More
