I just spent two nights at this hotel as part of a family weekend away.
Positives- The location is pretty good. While not in the centre of town it is right on the river and has it's own little dock which is good for fishing. It is an easy walk into town.
The reception area, pool area and playground area looks nice.
The price was actually very good. We got the room for $135 a night.
Negatives- A wedding was on the first night of our stay and we had been put in the room closest to the wedding. The noise was shocking until 12pm. Even with the tv in our room turned up fairly loud we couldn't drown out the music, and people talking right outside our patio door. This made it very hard to get a toddler to sleep. Needless to say we all had a terrible nights sleep the first night. I can't understand why we were put in that room. If we had of known that a wedding was going to be on we would have requested a room far away from the wedding venue.
The rooms are rather dated. No bath, just a shower with bad pressure.
The breakfast buffet was very bad. It cost us $20 each and the selection was very poor. I could have eaten at a restaurant/café for less and had far better food.
I wouldn't return.
