We stayed one night in one of the Twin rooms. The room was pleasant, not exactly WOW factor but still clean, modern. Bathroom was fairly new. The best aspect was the bed was SOOO incredibly comfortable. Usually nothing beats our bed at home but this did. Excellent night's sleep after such a long drive. WiFi free, (as it should be - country towns recognise the need for this more than city hotels!), with good signal and fast connection speed.
Good tea tray complete with biscuits.
Reception staff were great.
Only one downside - we paid to have cooked breakfast included and this was the most revolting breakfast we have ever had anywhere. The scrambled eggs, poached eggs, bacon and sausages had been left in warmers and were not cooked fresh. The bacon was shrivelled. The eggs were all hard and rubbery. My son ordered pancakes, which was the only decent meal out of the 3. My husband and I both had stomach pains after eating the breakfast. After extensive travelling this is the only place I have found that can't manage a freshly cooked breakfast.
I would definitely stay here again but would not eat at the Hovell Bar and Grill. I hear that Rydges does great breakfasts. Next time I will stay at Best Western but go to Rydges to try breakfast.
