Great value for the price

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Mar 2022
We stayed here for one night as we travelling through. While not a 'scenic' location, the grounds were well-maintained. Clean and quiet, family-run accommodation. Linens were fresh and wifi coverage was good. We really couldn't ask for more for the price. Highly recommended if you're driving through.

A pretty good and well priced overnight stop- definitely nothing fancy. We stayed in the 'family suite'- 5 adults and an infant ..rooms were spacious and clean and the shower was big and worked well which was a plus! however a few negatives- it's pretty noisy ( close to the highway and also 2+ dogs behind the property who bark A LOT during the night and only 1 socket worked in the whole room ?!? ..plus the carpark is a little tight with only 1 space allotted per room and people's boats parked up etc ..it may have just been the position of our room and the fact we had 2 utes ...overall would definitely stay there again / recommend for a short stay if your not too fussy and a heavy sleeper !

Reviewed 21 February 2021 via mobile

There are three barking dogs that are next to the property. Ridiculous noisy!
The hard bed.
The curtains are broken, we had to modify them, so the property next door couldn't see in our room.

The lack of communication when I left a message for the property. No reply at all.

On the good side!
It was actually very clean and the owner are nice in person.
