Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Stayed 2 nights in Apr 2021

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Not my cup of tea.
Neat and clean but dated facilities. Easy parking. Easy walk to the township for dining, supermarket, water, jetty, shops and museum. Bed extremely soft causing back pain for myself and husband. Around 5 visible maintenance items that detracted from visual appeal but did not impact on stay except for bathroom door that jammed and no window in bathroom so as enclosed spaces affect me psychologically, I felt discomfort using the facility. Limited kitchenette with plastic tub for washing up. Tap water was not palatable for us so purchased bottled water for our hot drinks. The staff were pleasant and efficient in their service. Too many, this facility would be most suitable, it is just not what we are used too.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Deluxe cabin is not free standing and is attached to a large garage/carport with a caravan alongside, with guests. The garden setting was overgrown and a large amount of tree prunings was piled adjoining the garden area.
