4/5 Good

The facility was as we expected having looked on the internet regards location , rooms (nice and clean) etc so overall rating is good. We had one request regards beds and this was no trouble to the helpful staff. Understanding that it is a holiday location and the town was very well patronised we still think the room price was high for what was available (or not) to guests . Wifi was intermittent and the facility had rooms only so no restaurant,pool or other guest areas. This may well be the standard in Kalbarri but considering the investments in attractions ( the skywalk is truly world class)
