The caretaker that welcomed us was the rudest and most unwelcoming man I've come across yet and we weren't the only people to say that, if it wasn't for the girls behind the bar we would've left! So considering we spent a minimum of $200 there I was disappointed about the initial welcome. The pub itself had a great atmosphere and the girls that worked there were really nice and looked after our 5 year old with great skill, fantastic to see. The meal was nice and the pool was perfect to cool off in. I will admit that next time if they have the same caretaker there I will go to Mataranka thermal pools.
