          Stayed here for one night with my overland camping tour, the facilities were clean and great. We had food at the restaurant, had chicken burger and chips and it was tasty. The bar was cool as well and WiFi worked well.

          Stayed here four years ago and despite the website saying that renovations were underway I could not see any change. It's ok for a quick stop over but not a longer term stay. Food is adequate and the bar has a great atmosphere.
