Room a bit tired, but had everything we needed in it. Was pleasantly surprised to find cutlery and crockery in the room, so could easily have done our own breakfasts. The restaurant was excellent and the staff very friendly.

Decent sized rooms, well heated, and plenty of parking. Stones throw away from bar and restaurant. Staff are nice, and everything seems clean. However the room had a lot of cluster flies.

The eggs were cook to perfection, bacon was crisp... Coffee was good and for $17 it was definitely value for money. The staff were polite and friendly and the place was clean.... Definitely one of the best value and best cooked breakfasts I've had in recent years... Would recommend if you like good old fashioned breakfasts.

Found the rooms quite suitable with a good restaurant and bar available across the courtyard. Participating in a Reunion so facilities suited the needs of the group (all in upper 70's) Weather helped as fine and quite warm. Had it rained may not have been so enjoyable getting to bar & restaurant
