Positive Reviews

Everyone is so kind

The efforts of management and staff are truly appreciated by guests. They go out of their way to ensure that guests’ stays are memorable for all the right reasons. It is their attention to detail which, guests say, particularly impresses.

Spacious and cheerful; inside and out

Guests are impressed by their cheerfully decorated and spacious rooms, and find the patio or terrace space a bonus. Guests like the fact that there is plenty of space outside too.

A cheery location

There are cheers for the location. Guests like the convenience aspect and the easy transport access to attractions. Any non-driving guests are happy to note that the local bus stops about 100 metres away, on Main Road. From the accommodation, it is only about four kilometres to the airport, and 400 metres to Saxton Field where the kids can let off steam. Surprisingly, a number of guests say cheers as they admit to sloping off in the direction of the food, beer choices and pre-booked brewery tours at McCashins Brewery, which is only about one kilometre away.

Negative Reviews

A long walk to shops and restaurants

Guests admit to being somewhat picky but, in an ideal world, they would be able to wander out to a restaurant, or to a grocery store for supplies. OK, they say, it is a very short drive to these places, but a drive, nevertheless.
