We spent 2 nights here and the beds were very comfortable and rooms very clean and spacious. We located with easy access into town and out as well. We ate at the restaurant last night and the food was superb.

Genuinely nice place for a stop over. Comfy bed, quite clean, friendly staff. Very lucky to find this last minute and reasonable price considering impending motor racing event (v8 supercars). Walking distance to supermarket food outlets ect. Minimal parking for large vehicles with trailers or vans so re-think your visit or park on main road.

Easy to find. Clean, well presented. Very friendly and welcoming staff. They made you feel they were really happy to have you stay. Nothing was too much trouble. They have a restaurant and meals can be delivered to your room if preferred. Meals were great especially the chocolate mud cake dessert!

I am beginning to confirm that with the smallest amount of research and use of Trip Adviser people can be spared a bad experience and have the privilege of staying at venues such as the Colonial Rose. With an early check-in enabling me to attend an afternoon function on time the first of many boxes was ticked. Incredibly professional knowledgeable...
