Nicely appointed and clean room overall. A bit shocked to find there was no air-conditioning (at all) in our room on what was a very hot and humid day, but survived with the supplied fan. Considering no air con the 'special rate' was not at all special - the room was hot and uncomfortable and we had to leave the fan on and the verandah doors open all night to sleep at all. Didn't feel secure! Definitely would have stayed elsewhere had I known. On a more positive note the location was perfect, the night lawn bowls across the road made for built-in entertainment, and the meal from the restaurant was pretty good. Felt really welcomed by the staff, including the restaurant and bar crew. If you like to sleep in, the pre 8am setup of tables and chairs at the cafe will probably disturb you, as will the night time pack up and departure of punters from the cafe/bar late in the evenings. Glad to have stayed mid-week when it was fairly quiet. All in all a grand old hotel, and a pleasant (but hot) stay. Would only recommend this to others if air-con is available. Wifi would improve the experience.
