We arrived at 1:30pm, tad before the 2pm, only to be sent back. Didn’t even try to help. Wifi did not work. The excuse given was that it does not work with iPhones. Then we were told that they don’t have fibre. After a conversation that fiver has nothing to do with wifi not connecting, it worked miraculously for few minutes and then stopped again. The kids were not impressed.

Great setting close to all amenities. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable and clean. Highly recommend for anyone staying for one night to several days. Good base for exploring the amazing region with many adventure companies within walking distance.

Allways a nice clean place to stay

Pros: Clean rooms friendly staff. Right across from hot pools
Cons: Beds and showers
Location: Short walk for food and right across from hotpools
Rooms are always nice and clean and staff are always friendly, but I think it is time to get new beds. Also shower heads are not good the water sprays everywhere but on your body.
