Staff are very friendly. No issue with wifi. Decent sized room. Highlight was having dinner at the hotel's restaurant. There was a great ambiance about it and the food was sensational. Service was also very good. Highly recommend.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room and a well appointed venue close to cafes, shops and other local attractions. My stay was on a Sunday and fortunately the local markets, which were worth a visit, were being held down near the railway station. I also availed myself of a Steam Train trip to and from nearby Victor Harbour. Somewhat...

Sad to see Murphys pub is no longer open and its replacement 'Jacks' is only open at the weekend. As for the rooms. Big comfy space. Aircon being upgraded while we are here. Beds very soft. Whole decor needs up grading. Pool not clean or open. New owners. Wish them all the best. Sure they are sat on a gold...

Our second visit within the first 3 months of new owners taking over is guaranteed not to be our last! The rooms were clean, comfortable & reasonably priced. The restaurant looked so much nicer than first visit & we were disappointed not to enjoy the Re-opening of it a few days later with the new chef & menu. These ladies...

We arrived late evening, the lovely lady answered the phone immediately & came down to book us in, we stayed 2 nights & loved the central location & comfortable room. We were told at the information centre that it had, had bad reviews in the past but I can safely say that you won't be sorry when you stay here

Clean, great location, generous breakfast supplied, wonderful value for money. The beds were comfortable. The location was surprisingly quiet. Small but good shower. Iron, toaster and kettle supplied. Owners have just taken the place over and could not have been more helpful.
