Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

JJ's restaurant looks like a roadhouse bar from the outside but the best steak I have had in a long while.

Nice accommodation

Two bedroom Unit was just right for the family, absolutely no complaints. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Is a bit of a walk into the main CBD area but we all needed the walk. Ate at the Lone Star - Excellent!!!

2 stars - yeah right! Should be many more.

The room was spotless, well appointed, comfortable, well laid out and had lake views. Car parking was immediately outside the apartment. We were at the back of the hotel away from the road and it was very quiet. We liked the commitment to "green" values and easy recycling. No question, we would stay again.

Watch your Back

Clean and modern motel but the bed needs upgrading - severe 'roll together' meant spending the night 'climbing' back up to the outside edge resulting in bad back pain next day

Good room but problem with shower:

Good room but problem with shower: what's happened to taps or flick mixers? It took 24 hours to work out how to get hot water to shower. Manager was more officious than efficient.
