Fair 4.0
When we got there we didnt know where to go and check in then we found a sign that said go to gaming room for all enquiries.Then the one and only staff member finally told us to go to the gaming cashier to sign inw which i didnt think was appropriate.Then after a while we got to check in and as we walked in the door there was a sickning terrible smell of moldy wet carpet on the stairs also the bed was very old and hard with springs just about coming through. Overall not a good place to stay for the weekend we will not be going back there.

Good value for the price, interesting dining room menu. Would be nice to have a place to sit with a drink and not have to listen to loud poker machine noise. I will stay again on my next trip down that way , the aircon was a welcome surprise.
