Awesome lamb! Great restaurant onsite...
The restaurant was absolutely awesome - 10/10, I highly recommend the lamb! My room was large, the bed was firm and comfy, bathroom was a bit tired but functional. The shower had good pressure and a nice bath. The TV was the smallest I've ever come across on a wall! The hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

Great staff, lovely location, rooms very tired
Great staff, lovely quiet location. The dining area and outside veranda overlooking the gardens was lovely. Wifi was not great. The rooms need a good overhaul. Very tired looking

This hotel needs to be upgraded match the asking price. The rooms were quite old and it had, I think, a 12 inch TV ! Abit off the track from the main town and activities but breakfast was good.

Great Staff, hotel was old
The staff were fantastic, they were very helpful and the food at the hotel was fantastic, but the room we were given was old with peeling walls and smelt rather musty. The mattress was ancient and the springs popped when you moved, and the TV was about the size of a laptop screen on the wall. I hope they do the rooms up soon as it would be a lovely room if it was fixed up a bit.
