Yes, this hotel has probably been converted from a 1970s 'beer barn' and has popular pokies - at 1130 on a weekday there were at least 25 people playing them - but I don't quite understand all the negative comments. I arrived early for lunch...More

We had a large family catch up for lunch on a Sunday. As soon as I walked into the dining area, it smelt quite musty. The staff were all lovely and the kid's play area is fantastic. The meals were hit and miss. I ordered...More
