Positive Reviews

Wizard accommodation in Oz.

Reasonably priced, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Everything works fine. Thankfully, this includes the air conditioning. Basic, cost-cutting meals can be prepared in the kitchen which comes with utensils, microwave and stovetop. The pool is beautiful and a real feather in the hotel’s cap.

What a great location!

Quietly situated away from the main rat-run, it’s good to know that you can walk, very easily, to cafes, bars and restaurants. As for shops, don’t miss out on Coles and a bite to eat at Brumby’s Bakery. There’s even a gymnasium, plus secured play areas for kids.

Incredible staff.

Managers and staff members are so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Their input adds significantly to the enjoyment of any stay here. The fact that they are happy to join you for an end of the day wind down and chat, is an indication of the level of dedication they have for their roles.

Negative Reviews

A step in the wrong direction.

There’s no lift here and the stairs leading to some rooms can be a bit tricky – particularly for elderly or infirm guests.

Lack of a pack.

There’s a great deal to do and enjoy in the area but there’s no information pack, or anything like that, in the room. Yes, you’re invited to contact the proprietors, but unless you are particularly hard-nosed, you’ll feel guilty about imposing on their privacy.

Hot and cold reactions to the Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi is only in the communal areas, but these spaces aren’t covered by the air-conditioning system which, incidentally, works like a dream in the rooms. Consequently, you are unlikely to hang around longer than is necessary in the stifling heat and humidity.
