I booked a queen room at very short notice. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom was tight,but immaculate. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay again on my way through.

We stayed in a Standard room which was small but OK for a quick overnight stop. The owners/staff were helpful & friendly. The room was clean & the bed comfortable.

My family and I came to stay here during a weekend of history hunting at the local asylums. We stayed in the family cabin and it was beautiful and clean. It slept the 4 of us comfortably!

Stayed overnight en route to Melbourne. Very clean and staff were very accommodating. As we suspected (being right next to the highway) it was quite noisy from passing trucks throughout the night. Would stay again though.
