2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The staff were pleasant. If you are used to sleeping in a tent or hut, the rooms are fine but not ok for 4 star hotel. Room smelt damp, was likely due to the water and mould in the window sills/frames. Room was cold and the bathrooms, blinds etc were dirty. No cups, one odd champagne glass, two dirty miss matched teaspoons and the smallest fridge in the world. Room could be made much more welcoming with a good clean and some homely touches easily.

Really enjoyed our stay here, room was great and had a large covered deck with a fantastic view. Dinner was a set menu, but was awesome and the decent serving sizes were much appreciated after a long day on the QCT. Would definitely stay here again.
