4/10 Fair

Not suited to overnight travellers, more of a hostel/resort setting, hard to find our way around after hard day driving.

4/10 Fair

The guy at reception was friendly, and the only positive thing there. Checking in required walking through a crowded bar (not what you want after a lengthy drive). The room was dated and basic. The mattress and pillows were saggy. Huge cobwebs filled the corner near the aircon, and the mouldy shower was completed with a mouldy shower curtain. The bistro staff were unpleasant and refused to bring my meals over to my room (despite plenty of staff standing around with sour looks and doing nothing. The meals were cheap and awful, and ridiculously overpriced. Being served spaghetti bolognese with TINNED bolognese and being charged $20 for it is disgraceful. Overall, a really disappointing and overpriced stay. Absolutely do NOT recommend.
