I stayed mid-week and the hotel appeared deserted. The property advertises free wi-fi but I couldnt get a tablet to connect. The only help from reception - wait 5 min then try again and if it doesnt work there is nothing we can do. It didnt work.
Property is supposed to have Foxtel - no channels were available on the television so I suspect the bill hadnt been paid. They claim to have a gym - one old step machine and an antique bike.
I chose to dine in an ordered a basic steak and steamed vegetables...they couldnt make the two dishes arrive together.....because "it was taking a long time for the water to boil". In the end they took the vegetables (that arrived after I had finished the steak)...off the bill. AND there was only one other guest in the restaurant.....
Cant recommend this one - steer well clear.
