To start off. I have travelled many parts of Australia and also Europe and asia. Never have I come across such an overpriced and ridiculous establishment. Sure enough it would be acceptable if we had a decent stay, but I was disappointed . The only thing I can say, is the food was absolutely sensational. They are doing some really top of the end stuff in that kitchen.
Staying in the hotel, it was like they were on a budget and everything was half done. Like the cleanliness of the bathroom and overall efforts to satisfy customers. We were shocked to be welcomed by a lady at the reception who simply acted as of we were less of a person. Like hello? We are the guests. She was impollite and mean. Like she was frustrated with our presence. We were then greeted by a young boy dressrd in chef uniform who kindly offered to take our luggage to our rooms. We read the drinks menu and decided to take trip into town to the cellars in town to save money. We then phoned reception to get some glasses and maybe some snacks or nibbles. There was a problem with that, they did not have any snacks or nuts or anything g to offer us. Ok. Well can we please have 2 glasses for our room. She says yes I'll be up straight away. 25 minutes passed . No glasses . Really?
Anyway. In my opinion don't bother staying in the hotel, eat for dinner and you will find yourself in an amazingly pleasurable state with the delectable menu.
Thanks but I'd rather keep my hard earned dollars.
