O could not see any environmentally responsible practices in my room. Not even hang up your towels if you don't want them washed. A shame considering that the region is embarking on a more eco and socially responsible brand. The rooms are a little tired, with worn carpet and

Hi, There is a supermarket which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel or some mini-marts on the same street. The Cowboys Leagues Club is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Hi Jim, we certainly do have hair dryers in the apartments. I will certainly make a note on your reservation and we will endeavour to meet your request for a high floor & river view.

Hi Peter, Unfortunately our pool is not heated and does not have a temperature gauge so it is difficult to be precise. I have received mixed comments from guests travelling from areas such as Sydney as to whether they found the pool cold at this time of year or not. The pool is in full sun, so can become warmer later in the day, when it has been heated some by the sun. I am sorry I can't be more specific to help you further with your enquiry.
