  • The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable and the ensuite bathroom has a great shower and lovely big fluffy towels. There is a separate lounge area with free wifi, and CD and DVD player. The pool looks very inviting and there is a tennis court. There is an easy walk to Blaxlands Inn Restaurant and if it is too dark when returning to your room, there is a courtesy bus.

  • Everything about this property was amazing! Especially the friendly service. Nothing was too difficult for the staff who went out of their way to help us. From the moment we arrived, we were genuinely greeted and every offer was made to be super accommodating. The room was perfect value for money considering we were staying there over a weekend. The room was also a lot bigger than what we thought it would be so we were very impressed. The bed was soft and warm and the shower was good too. It had a separate lounge and bedroom so more then plenty of space for a couple.
