Our package for the Ghan included a 4 night stay here before the train. Although good location and staff friendly I was a bit disappointed in the hotel. The first room we were offered had 1 little tiny window so the room looked pretty dark and dingey, although the size was ok.

Dear Mandurahmum, Thank you for your review. We appreciate hearing from our guests so we know what our guests like, what we did well and what areas of the hotel we can focus on to make improvements. The hotel design is environmentally friendly and the window size maximises the airconditioning efficiency throughout the building. The hotel has a number of improvements we are rolling out over the next few months including new bed linen and dinner restaurant. Thanks for sharing your experience and valuable feedback. Regards, Michelle Davidson General Manager
