“Clean, Extremely spacious but a bit dated”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

We had about the biggest motel room I have ever stayed in. My husband had stayed before many years ago when it was a lot newer for a conference.
It was very clean but dated. Plasma and foxtel
Would stay again.
Plenty of outside room and central garden.
Cleaning staff were very helpful and polite when I needed a bandaid.

Reviewed 27 October 2010

I stayed in one of the executive spa suites and what a delightul, character filled suite it was.
The king bed was so very comfortable and the room was large and very nicely furnished.
The complex/grounds are beautiful and well cared for...
It is close to Newcastle and well placed to travel into Sydney.
I am looking forward to my next stay in this beautiful accomodation....
