Location location
Very good location. Right in the heart of the Main Street. Close to everything.

Disappointing start with room but ends well. Booked an underground room. It was so hot and stuffy. This surely could not be normal - wasn't it supposed to be 'cooler' underground? There was something terribly wrong with the room, it smelt funky and had no air circulation apart from a cheap small plastic wall mounted fan for a very large room!! We let front desk know, they were very accommodating and offered us an upstairs room with aircon as no other underground rooms were available. The above ground room was superb!! Bliss. We were worried about staying in an above room as it would be too hot - don't make the same mistake! You can very comfortably stay above ground here. Staying underground is more of a novelty. We moved to another underground room the next 2 nights which was so much better, didn't smell, had great air circulation and a metal fan! Much better. We were able to look into rooms when being cleaned and some layouts were better than others and the size varied. We had an issue with the shower in the second underground which was fixed promptly. We used the pool which was clean and dined at breakfast in the cafe which was good. The hotel also has an opal shop and a tour and information on the area which was really good. Would recommend this hotel, great location too.

A good place to stay
Apart from some frustration around our room and tour times, this is a great place to stay. Meals are fabulous and big serves; beautifully quiet in underground rooms so we slept well.
