    This is the second time I have stayed there now. Warm and clean facilities - Spa and movie room an added bonus. Very easy to find and very well priced. Awesome owners and I would definitely recommend.

    Don't forget your swimsuit to enjoy the jacuzzi, huuuuge kitchen and dining room which is really convenient, really warm blankets and nice place to stay! The manager has been really helpful to book the shuttle due to my late check in (after closure time).

    We arrived late at night and found our map etc waiting for us as per the booking email. Had made a mistake initially booking the wrong night but a quick phone call and that was sorted. Thought the $35 for the shuttle was a bit...More
