Hi fellow travellers.
Myself and my partner bought an ourdeal voucher for a two night stay out to the foothills conference centre. Included was two free buffet breakfasts and a buffet dinner.
Upon arriving at reception it was a little difficult to find but once we found it we opened the door to the conference centre and there was a lovely open roaring fire. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful and clear in checking in. We then went to our room which was in a great location and had the biggest bed we had ever seen! So comfortable and the best shower I have had while staying away. Great little fridge, nice touch with the biscuits and tea and coffee making facilities. Slept well except we had some bogans next door shouting and swearing in the morning as they smoked outside (what can you do even bogans like a good deal).
Breakfast in the morning was great, orange juice, tea coffee, toast, bacon, two types of eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns. All good quality for a buffet and we had more than enough. Dinner Saturday night was great – buffet again with a massive variety and all was cooked well. Hotel staff were lovely and helpful even with dealing with demanding customers who wanted the world when on a scoopon!
All in all great value and I don’t think the other people are being fair to the centre, you can’t expect 5 star resort food. The food I had was tasty, well prepared and hot. I had a
Great time and would return any day.
