Consider joining up before you play and enjoy some member discounts in the café. Plenty of pokie machines and card tables for those who want sport try upstairs for the multiscreen tv

We were shocked out how incredibly small this casino is - a real let down compared with casinos I the Gold Coast and in Sydney, Melboirne and Perth.

Can't pass a Casino but once you lose $25 it is time to move on. Casino is clean and surprisingly tere is no odour of cigarettes. Good eating spots and good bars

Had a great welcome when we arrived. Front desk staff are very accommodating and helpful. Our room was gorgeous with a big balcony to sit out on and enjoy the views. Would highly recommend this hotel. Tired the casino - no luck!
