  • Liked: Staff & service

Breakfast was very good. Property and room was very dated. TV was the old analogue and did not work. Good location for P &J venue.

An Excellent Hotel - Worth a Visit

An excellent hotel, wish we'd known about it sooner! It was all positive from booking through to departure. They were most accommodating in a special request I made. The room was spotlessly clean and nice and cosy. The food was excellent, as was the breakfast. It was a pleasure to see the hotel staffed with indigenous workforce all speaking our language! We will return.
