6.8 Okay
We stay here every year on our way through to the Tweed Coast. The rooms are always clean and the pool is great. Unfortunately they didn’t provide the room we wanted as stated in the booking it was 1 adult and 1 teenage girl so when you arrive to see just a queen size bed I was a tad disappointed and for just the one night it just wasn’t worth complaining. The restaurant has been closed for renovations for 3 years now which is no big deal we go to the bowls club for dinner. So if you are expecting to arrive late and roll into their bistro you’d better make other arrangements.
10.0 Excellent
