This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Airconditioning was not at all good in our room. Good central place for central Australia,. Roger extremely helpful. Guests need to be told they need identification before purchasing alcohol. We didnt know and had to leave our would be purchase behind! Would be useful if guests could vacate tables after eating so that other people could use the table. They stayed there playing with their laptops instead. \Enjoyed the stay there though, nice to see other parts of the country.
