Liked how quiet and dark the rooms where at night for sleeping. Price per night was great and convenient to where we were located over the weekend. The bathrooms need an update, tiles cracking on the wall and paint peeling off in the rooms. Room does feel dark overall- maybe pain entire room white to make feel light and bright. Foxtel control confused me when it didn’t work, that feature would be nice Overall would stay again

Good value, friendly service and seemed clean, although there was a very strong smell of cleaning products which was a bit off-putting.
