We spent 4 nights there.
The Owners, Phil and Cheryl were very friendly and helpful.
The accommodations were excellent and very spacious. We had a separate bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen / living room area as well as a great balcony overlooking the pool. The parking garage was under the hotel and very secure.
The location was fabulous. Various activities in the area provided shuttle service from the hotel to their facility. And we were just a few blocks away from downtown and oodles of great restaurants and stores.
Phil and Cheryl have walls of brochures of activities to do in the area and are able to help arrange them for you.
We had a wonderful time there.
I would, however, want to give advance warning to Americans . . .
In Hotels in America the front lobby is open 24/7 and there is a hotel employee manning the front desk for your convenience 24/7. Apparently it is somewhat common for hotels in Australia to close at 6:00 pm. You need to arrive before that, as the front desk will be closed. We, unfortunately had met with 3 such situations. You may want to get a copy of their policies. Phil and Cheryl were most understanding, but . . . be prepared.
