  • 2.0.Poor

    Nobody there when we checked in, cleanliness very poor. Parking on site was full. So had to park on the street. $110 was a rip off for the quality of the accomodation. We are told to holiday in our own backyard & when we do we get ripped off. I wouldn’t stay there again.

    I thought this little backpackers was a gem. Great staff and good facilities. I mean its not a five star hotel, so get a grip and keep it in perspective. But for cheap quality place to stay for a few nights, it was a winner. 5 minute walk to shops and lakefront. heaps of parking. Big ups to staff.
