Good location
The owner was friendly and helpful. The location was close to town. Our room was on the Road front so we were overwhelmed by the noise at times.

Old but well maintained. Spacious. Spider webs. Bad Internet.

10/10 Exceptional

We liked the quietness we had a unit in the back corner which was very private. The only concern was a damp smell in the bathroom maybe needs attention.
Verified Wotif guest review

10/10 Exceptional

Stayed with a friend for a girls weekend and were easily able to walk to both the lost springs and town. Older room was dated, but very functional and clean. Tapware has all been updated and the shower is amazing! Had a weird glitch where our key didn’t work and we were locked out afterhours. The manager was quick to come rescue us and swap out the key, all within a couple of minutes. Would happily stay again.

Met with a smile and a friendly greeting. Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Only there for one night but close to everything that was required. Would definitely stay here again.
