Modern Hotel with Bistro and full Bar facilities plus TAB, Keno and Gaming Lounge. Recently renovated with a lovely deck area plus footpath dining. Great for relaxing with a delicious meal, cocktail or an ice cold craft beer straight from the tap. Friday and Saturday kick on with a live band or DJ set after dinner until late.
