8.6 Excellent

Stayed on two separate nights in different rooms. Both times we found the beds to be terribly hard with the feeling of the springs. The car park was very tight for a vehicle of our size (hilux). The rooms were clean with very good sized TV screens on the wall opposite the bed, making watching tv in bed a pleasure.

We booked a room for three and were given a room with only one queen bed. This was remedied by reception - for an extra charge of $20 per night! When you book for three you should not be offered a room for two. The hotel is clean and comfortable but the extra charge left a sour taste as we chose the property on value for money.
