  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Food was good in lounge and restaurant. Liked that it had NRL in lounge area, plenty of parking. Quiet during day and night.. however, on last morning of our stay.. Didn’t like noise of mowing the lawns, whipper snipping and sawing down tree branches with chainsaw from 7:20am while I’m trying to sleep after a late night out 😡 Also, during our 4 night stay, we had to make 3 unnecessary trips to reception due to our room entry card not opening our door. Frustrating. Overall not a bad pub. Liked that they have bands on in beer garden area on Sunday afternoons.
