au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The layout and location is great. The cafe 'Little Nel' is amazing. It would he great if they could do a breakfast rate at hotel to include this. The only downside was no staff around over night. The room next door to us was having a party with multiple guests. I believe this was just bad luck so will definitely stay again
