The room was large and clean. There was only 2 milk shots in the room, not enough for more than 1 tea each. The queen size bed had a single bed blanket on it. When we went to the restaurant for tea, we asked what size the steak was and what vegetables where on offer. This question was answered. The... More

The Asian owner when I rang said sorry you took pillow and you pay. This is theft and be very cautious when you stay there. This mater will now... More

Stayed here for one night and not going back. First room pulled back the bed covers and moved a pillow to find a dead mouse looking cosy. It was late and we had paid so moved to another room. Apology from the receptionist who was friendly albeit untrained in hospitality. Chinese food in restaurant was tasty but ran out of... More

Having read other reviews for this place I was dubious staying here but after a long day travelling all I really wanted was a bed and the fact it had an attached restaurant meant I wouldn't have to look for somewhere else to eat. Checking in was ok although the receptionist was a bit abrupt and sounded annoyed we hadn't... More

Stopped over after a long drive and found availability here. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful in the evening but found the morning receptionist was rude and abrupt. Room was adequate but basic.

In our recent East Coast trip, we stayed here overnight and it was all fine, if a bit basic. I chose it because it was near but not on the highway and set in its own grounds. This definitely gave a quiet spacious feel. The room was also large with a queen and single, bar fridge, small table and chairs,... More
