We had the family room- one queen and three single beds. Room was very clean and tidy with lots of room to move about. We stayed with two teens and there was ample space. Beds were very comfortable. Very quiet location - perfect for a great nights sleep. We had the breakfast in the dining room which was delicious. Everything...

Stayed as two couples in room 32 & 33. Very clean and comfortable and bathroom which looks new had toiletries and a great powerful shower. The reception staff were really friendly and $10 in a taxi will get you to the town centre. Would recommend as a great value stop off.

quiet and comfortable room, good value for money, very friendly management. Problem with heater quickly resolved. Wifi worked well. TV could not pick up all stations which was frustrating but not a great problem in the end.

Good clean room, friendly staff, free parking outside room, value for money accomodation. A little out of town, but reasonably quiet area. Was a good starting point for our trip to the Jenolan Caves. Acces to the highway is about 100 yards from the hotel driveway.

We stayed here as the base for our bush walk on the 6ft track. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The owners are friendly and the price was great. For a family of four there was plenty of room and the beds were comfortable.

We stayed here for three nights with friends and booked a couple of rooms here. The service is very good and the rooms are clean and well maintained. It's about a 20 minute walk into the town centre for something to eat. It is very close to the main road so you will hear trucks passing all night though to...

A short drive from town, offering typical motel rooms with some extras for the summer such as a BBQ and outdoor pool. Rooms could be more comfortable and modern but the price reflects this. Breakfast was great and great value too and service here is really friendly.
