It's okay. The room was clean and reasonably quiet. They're in the midst of renovating the place and it really needs it - the bathroom had been done in my room but the rest was vintage '70's, right down to the panelling on the walls, the kitchenette, paper-bagged drinking glasses and the paper tape around the toilet seat ("sanitized for your protection"!) The pillows were very soft and two stacked together were too high for me. There was a stain on the third pillow case that had set in - I'm very sure it had been laundered but it still kind of grossed me out, so I didn't use that one. The air conditioner was very noisy and almost completely ineffective in cooling the room down after a 35C day. There is wi-fi but it's very very slow - I had hoped to research some wineries but gave up after awhile. It's great for kids who love pools - in fact the place made me feel very nostalgic because it's exactly the sort of place my brother and I would have pestered my parents to book us into as kids. (The decor made the impression complete!) At nearly $150.00 including tax per night for my room it's a lot of money and I'm sure there are cheaper places that are just as - quaint.
