What a pleasant surprise. Arrive tired after a long weekend as a stopover back home. The reception as in greeting and service we got was very 4welcomed. The registration was painless and expedited quickly. The room was modern and very clean and very comfortable. I didn't advise in advance of what configuration I needed travelling with my son. The room was a queen and a sofa bed. On unfolding the sofa bed there was no linen. I took myself toward the reception office when I came upon what I suppose you would call back of house. The lady who was on the phone I'm guessing a private call asked the caller to hold on (impressive) and asked what she could for me. I explained the situation to which she took me to an area that you could see into. It was there laundry. Now usually back of house slips a little its tardiness but not this one. Very clean, very well organised and set out. They said they would come and make the bed to which I replied its ok I am a Nurse I figure after 30 odd years of making beds I have got that one covered(no pun intended). Shortly after returning to my room another lady knocked and asked if I needed a hand and we made the bed together. What more can I say if your in the Hay area and certainly I will great place to stay. Thanks Saltbush

I’ve stayed here many times as a stopping off point between NSW and SA. The staff are always friendly and the rooms are large and clean. I have never had a bad experience.
