  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Lovely room, very clean, comfortable beds , and great location. Would recommend this to everyone

Stayed 1 night in Feb. 2020


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Not suitable for older people with knee issues with all the stairs and uneven brickwork. Painfully to lug bags upstairs if you don’t get a ground level room. Less than helpful or hospitable front reception staff. Old musty rooms, terrible beds and less than decent bathrooms. We saw a 4 star standard when reviewing this property, but perhaps they gave us one of their worst rooms as it was terrible! So stayers, beware! We also booked for 4 nights and on the 2nd day (after 1 night), requested to check out early. The terms said that changes must be made 48 hours prior, which we did. We were told we had to ask the manager - I guess it was not clear to reception staff. We booked through Expedia who made the request on our behalf, and were told a refund could be offered, after we were told this, they called back to reneg their offer and eclined to reimburse us for the last night claiming only that “it had been declined”. They mentioned the 48 hour rule several times despite making the decision to check out early more than 48 hrs prior to the last nights stay and this wasn’t good enough for them. Do not recommend this place at all as the only possible benefit is the location and free parking.

Loved the old Dutch style building, and the staff member who checked me in was great

  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Amenities

The property is all character, a time piece to remind us of yesteryear. We were aware of this as a little bit of fun booking the accommodation and it was just that. The rooms were clean, front desk staff helpful, we were thankful for the pedestal fans in each roo as it was quite hot without aircon. But again it was all about the experience

  • Liked: Staff & service

3 levels so not great for people with mobility issues. Beds were very uncomfortable. Location, while great for access to the gorge was very very noisy - road noise. The only plus was That is was great viewing of the Australia Day fireworks from the lounge room.
