A very nice friendly, clean and relaxing place to stay. They put on a great night for a BBQ that gave a good cultural experience and let you try all these exotic Australian meats. It also had individual safes which are a great idea so you don't have to worry about your special belongings.

It is a place that you really enjoy relaxing. The garden is just perfect for chilling and thinking about your life and so on. Pool always cools you down, when you are feeling hot in this grazy climate. It is a truly loveable place!
