Very good cold drinks

Meeting others there and enjoying several cold beers on a 26c day was such a refreshing time that enabled complete relaxation.

What a shame such a great casino ruined by such a poor restraunt, poor food poor service, this is the restraunt in the casino not the two adjoining restraunts on the outside of the gaming room, I am talking about the restraunt in the gaming room area, poorly managed no supervision, any complaints are covered up by a free food...

This Casino, like some other Australian Casinos is in need of a full upgrade. It has a very 'tired' feel to it and my experience was not very exciting. They will struggle to attract repeat punters from overseas when comparing it to places like Las Vegas or Macau.. They could do with a little competition, maybe another Casino licence should... More

Rather disappointed at this Casino, rather like a large football club, with very little atmosphere about it.

The food was authentic Chinese ( my mouth... More

Upon arriving at our hotel following an early flight we were met by a very friendly receptionist who could not do enough to help us get to a room as soon as she could arrange it. (Sorry I don't remember her name but she was originally from Germany and does deserve some recognition for her excellent service) We were given... More

Had dinner with a colleague in the Chinese Restaurant. Really good Chinese fare and plenty of it at a reasonable price. Drinks on the high side but service was excellent.

Lowest blackjack table is $20 so makes a very expensive night if you want to play. Would attract more people with more tables and lower hands. Didn't see any craps table. Overall pretty disappointing for a small casino and even a smaller town like Alice Springs casino out does this one at every turn . Needs some refurbishment a day... More
