Food was good in lounge and restaurant. Liked that it had NRL in lounge area, plenty of parking. Quiet during day and night.. however, on last morning of our stay.. Didn’t like noise of mowing the lawns, whipper snipping and sawing down tree branches with chainsaw from 7:20am while I’m trying to sleep after a late night out 😡 Also, during our 4 night stay, we had to make 3 unnecessary trips to reception due to our room entry card not opening our door. Frustrating. Overall not a bad pub. Liked that they have bands on in beer garden area on Sunday afternoons.

Christmas 2019

We enjoyed our stay it was quiet considering it was the peak season and most of the rooms were full. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. My children were impressed with their family room which was excellent value for money. Given the hot spell of weather the room stayed cool enough to sleep however, we would have liked a window in the bathroom to open. Its locality is excellent, shops not far to drive and local attractions handy.We didn't have time to visit the bistro. We will stay again.
