Ok, but not great
Great location, with amazing views. The place is clean, but really run down. Price is a bit steep for what you get.

Great room.
A great place to stay, however it's at the opposite side off town to the only hotel, and it's own restaurant / bar is closed two days a week.

6/10 Good

The view great.. The bed was disgusting you roll into the middle. Brick work was a pain lent against it and left your hair pulled. Bath sorry how do you get out of it no hand rails. No lift to help with your case for top floor. I work in aged care so look for thing that don’t suit the older person…Thank you but I did enjoy it,?

Whereas it felt like we had just time travelled back to 1975, it was a positive experience. Room was very clean, well appointed and the bed was comfortable, bathroom was spotless and had all the amenities required, staff were nice and helpful and parking was easy and secure. views were exceptional, a good experience.
