The staff is friendly and try hard to help us for missing equipments in the room. However, the dusty carpet and blanket makes me sneeze and blocked nose entire night. I am allergic to dust. I don't think the cleaner actually vacuum the carpet at all. Very dusty ....I would only give 0.5 star but the misleading advertisement rated 4...

We found the staff friendly and helpful. The room was great for our stay. The drive to Nelson Bay is effortless. The area has great sites and restaurants. It is only a short drive to the Hunter wineries.

We stopped here for a night and had a great stay. The pool is refreshing and the restaurant makes some amazing oriental food! The rooms are nice and the on site parking is also good. One great benefit was the free guest laundry that we took advantage of.

Great budget...

The main positive about this hotel is the price/value. It is decent enough and the price is more than fair, especially considering it includes breakfast. But make sure you adjust your expectations accordingly. The room is adequate but dated. It was reasonably clean, but it could use some upgrading and fixing. For instance, there the nightstand lamp is attached to...
