This old coal town has or is or seems to be dying. Avoid unless absolutely necessary. Food and wine were passable and atmosphere not good, but I felt for the staff who are working with old infrastructure. Try Copley instead at least for the bakery

My rating is based on the following . Rooms need updating they have late 80s early 90s decor including not having a lounge to sit on . Lack of information provided by the resort. Times the shops are open, 4wd maps, information about what is around and things to do. Office opening times and where to leave the key when you leave. . No WIFI in the rooms. . Lack of plates and cooking equipment . Probably not a resort or I have stayed in the off season?

Finding the reception to the motel accommodation is difficult because their is no signage. Once located we were given a map to find our room,however the map was not well presented and once again there were no signs to locate where the units are. The room itself was quite comfortable but the town itself is virtually empty with many empty houses. Reception also houses the tavern and restaurant but is only open for a few hours in the morning and the same in the afternoon.Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent with a range of continental and a very large cooked.

Thanks for your positive response to the meals. We are working closely with the local government on better signage at the resort. Hopefully we can fix that soon!
