Positive Reviews

Lovely hosts and staff enhance the stay

Everyone who works here reflects the same kind of warmness that the hotel itself exemplifies. The hosts are two of the loveliest people you will ever encounter at a lodge, and they've instilled a great dedication towards customer service to their staff.

Resident wallabies are a delight to see

Many guests find it charming and part of the enjoyment of staying here, to see the resident wallabies come and go about the property. It's become part of the appeal of this hotel, to have such a direct connection to the local wildlife right there for your experience.

Great location for the area

You'll be very pleased if you're looking to explore the natural beauty of this area, since the hotel is a great base to see much of it. It's the kind of place where, after you wake up to the amazing views from your window, you can take an easy drive and see what makes this such a nice getaway.

Negative Reviews

Minor grievances about Wi-Fi and amenities

There are a couple of minor gripes that affect guests feeling completely happy about their stay. The Wi-Fi is spotty and not always working, the arcade games are also out of working order at at times, and the lack of breakfast annoys those who would prefer an immediate onsite concession.

Questionable cleanliness with reports of bugs

Some guests have reported bugs in their rooms, and there's no clear answer as to where they are coming from. Keep this in mind, look over the room, and tell staff if you see something amiss.

Uncomfortable beds and musty odours

The beds are very firm, too firm actually, for many guests, and some rooms are also plagued by off-putting, stale smells.
