“Great time”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The place has a great atmosphere and it is nice to dress up and go somewhere nice. Plenty of choice to gamble your money and very attentive staff. We went with $50 each and the three of us came home with more money after 4 hours of fun. I love the roulette wheel!

“It's not for everybody.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Once upon a time, there's a dress-code for the place but then, due to declining numbers of patrons, the code is loosened. Then, you attract some low-lifes to the place too. Here, you get to see lonely Asians, opportunists that are trying to leach off those unfortunate people, creatures of the night. Come here if gambling is what you love to do but apart from that, it's not of the same standard as the ones at Las Vegas. There's Club Aspinall upstairs catering to the VIPs but for a brief visit, you will miss it altogether.

“Very classy casino!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had to kill time here as our flight left late. We were expecting another tired dowdy casino but were pleasantly surprised by the decor. Rather swish and well laid out. The place was very modern and had a bit of class about it. Free coffee near the pokie machines. Mostly 2c machines but a couple of 1c near the cashier. I have been in quite a few casinos throughout Australia and this one would be better than those. Give it a visit, free parking underneath if you punch your ticket at the cashier's desk before leaving.

Had an evening meal here and were not overly impressed with either the quality, the price or the service.

“Good enough”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Nice enough range of food for slightly too much money. Can't complain but not raving about it either.
