Message from the Manager

Hamish Allardice

General Manager

Living on-site gives me a great advantage to be available anytime of the day or night. Don't hesitate to call me if you have any queries or need a helping hand. Else drop by and see me at breakfast, lunch or dinner in the dining hall or at the reception desk during office hours.

What other's have said, from Google Review

Clean rooms, aircon, good showers and food, no bugs, really enjoyed staying here for nine days with all the integrated water cohort while we travelled the area. Good place for large groups to stay. Courtyards and pool area make it easy and pleasant to socialise at the end of the day. Thanks Hamish ...
