    The Bad – Tired and overpriced, rooms not cleaned properly, walkways to rooms have loose tiles everywhere. Not worth the $360 per night. The Good – The Ilkari Restaurant is fantastic, we ate here for three night and every meal was outstanding.More

    The pool did not appear to be heated. When we were there in September, a few hardy kids were swimming but it felt much too cold for us to go in! I imagine when it gets very hot as the summer moves on, it will be lovely!

    Definitely there is a safe. It is such a lovely hotel. I loved the pasta in the restaurant. There was a distinct flavour of bush Tucker in it. possibly Lily Pily
