I wouldn't say it would be my first choice again. Got a budget room,so what that means we don't get clean bathrooms. I could see dirt on the grout in the shower, cant say I have seen many shower curtains in motels in this day and age, don't want to see again either. A room where you have to go...

A disappointing venue with mixed conditions. While the public venues on the ground floor are fine, it was a different situation on the top floor where we were located. While clean, our room clearly needed maintenance, as did the corridor. Dissapointingly at breakfast we were entertained by a staff member vacuuming the breakfast area. No wifi is available on site...

Hotel in a great location, the room was clean and had everything we needed and the staff were good. In need of renovation, but it's a work in progress and some rooms more modern. Limited places to eat in the area so we choose to eat in the hotel, big mistake, on the coast we expected fresh seafood, the fish...

Do not stay here! As soon as we arrived in our room we knew we made a mistake. Unfortunately we had already paid. The first room on the ground floor was so old, dated and small we were shocked. The bed was too short for my 6ft 3 husband so we had to 'upgrade'. The second 'honeymoon suite' was not...

Don't even think about staying here. Make the effort to drive to the next accommodation. I had 9 workers staying here (myself included) under the workers package! Meals were pathetic! Dry meat and veg! Not one happy man amongst us! Two didn't eat dinner because a filled in voucher needed to be handed over at the time of ordering the...

A very comfortable room with nice views of the sea and inlet.. Meal was good. A pity the male proprietor decided to berate a member of staff in front of customers in the Restaraunt. From earlier comments to us about the choice of salad and/or chips with certain meals he had not read nor understood the menu. This appeared to...

The accommodation is okay and the staff that checked us in were friendly and helpful but in Scamander there is really only one place to eat and that is downstairs in the hotel bistro. We ordered the fish of the day (flathead) expecting it to be fresh, well I have thawed out frozen fish from my freezer that was 6...

Definitely 2 to 3 ⭐️. Such a lovely position however it's time for a major revamp and clean up. Still locked in the 70's. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was very basic. It was great to have an elevator to the 3rd floor.

We stayed here for one night while travelling up the east coast. This hotel is not your most modern but the necessities are provided such as hot water and water pressure, comfortable bed. The rooms are of a good size but walls are a bit thin so you hear your neighbours chatting. Dinner was a bit pricey for the standard...
