As others have mentioned, this property doesn't really represent value for money. We had expected this going in, as in our experience travel in Australia is often overpriced for what you get compared to many other parts of the world. However, we had hoped this might be different, but it wasn't. The rooms felt pretty average, the beds were extremely uncomfortable, and the breakfast was served luke-warm with not enough staff, so it felt very frenzied and unorganised. We probably wouldn't have felt the same if they charged a lot less, but when you pay more, you expect more. The area is lovely, and there is a huge amount of accommodation around, so there are bound to be other properties to stay at with better pricing and comparable quality.
