The staff are lovely, although the room smelled dank and the TV didn't work.

We attended for the Wellbeing Australia Conference and stayed in a 2 bed apartment. We didn't realise that the apartment was actually a one bed apartment and another twin room adjoined, and we didn't realise it was in another building. ... more
