Had a great stay, sadly only one night but oh so impressed. We will be back. Great staff, clean bright and modern accommodation. Comfortable bed and great bathroom. No traffic or other noise, this place is a gem.”TripAdvisor
By far one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a long time. The greeting from the hotel staff and information were pleasing. After driving all day the room was excellent, clean, roomy and bright. Massive plunge bath for two, great for those romantic getaways. Great location if going to Sovereign Hill. Will definitely be back to this hotel.”TripAdvisor
The staff were friendly and helpful. The Executive room was of excellent standard, and was maintained to a high level of cleanliness. Our room was perfectly quiet, even with the reverse cycle heating on, and was equipped with a blackout blind, ensuring an excellent night's sleep. It was an absolute pleasure to have enjoyed a wonderful stay there. Would definitely stay again.”TripAdvisor
