    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    Flooring clean but a few pieces of lino missing. Water mixing in the shower very hit or miss and z shower in the bath is not very practical for people with balance problems.. The door lock was also hit or miss as it was a problem to lock it.

    Stayed 4 nights in Oct. 2019


      Only stayed a night before flying out of Tassie so it was only to have a bed. The cabins are small and if there is more than 4 then you will struggle for space unless you are ok with that. We didn't look to closely to the location (my fault) when booking as everything in Hobart was booked because of school holidays only to find when we arrived in Hobart that it was directly across from the Risdon prison which did leave the family a little on edge given that 1 guy escaped as we arrived in Hobart (caught him after a week so just before we stayed). When we drove out early in the morning before reception had opened every window had a full metal shutter pulled down over it to prevent break-ins I can only assume so that sums up the area really. Amenities and facilities are pretty basic. Kids get a small area to play (jumping pillow, small climbing) and the condition of the mini golf has a lot to be desired. Got in, got out. Lady on the counter was friendly though when we arrived.
