I booked this hotel 3 months ago, requesting a king bed and when we arrived were given twin beds with the explanation that the request was not able to be filled. The property itself is attractive although our room was very standard, perhaps even a little tired but with an updated bathroom. The biggest let-down was the bedding. I find a doona way too hot (will NEVER understand why this is the default of almost every hotel in he world) and removed it from the sleeve which barely reached from my chin to my toes! even the bottom sheet was very short. with the mattress and underlays all exposed at the feet. (when the bed was made, the doona reached just above the waist!) As a result it was a very sleepless and uncomfortable night. Also going for a shower at 2 am and finding no shower-cap was a huge pain, and breakfast at $35/head was over the top. High-end world prices in Cessnock?
All in all - a very disappointing experience.
