Back to nature! Aug 12, 2010
There are only 5 lots of accomodation close to the National Park entrance. This is the furthest one but it isn't far. It is in a bushland setting which is great. This hotel is basically a long building with a corridor down the centre. It is not square or highrise. We got one of the cheaper rooms which was good and all rooms had a sliding door with a balcony. I do find the word balcony a joke as you can only step on it and nothing else. Ours faced the carpark. The dearer rooms faced the bushland. Walking from our room to reception, we passed a library area where there was a wood fire and glass sliding doors. I think there were 3 or 4 library/sitting areas altogher. You could go outside and walk on the boardwalk through the bushland setting. We did this and came back in through the library further down.
There was also a guests laundry. Near the reception desk there was 2 restaurants and a bistro bar. Across the carpark was a gallery which we had free admission to because of staying in this hotel. Really, you don't have to go anywhere, it is all here. There is even a day spa, although we didn't use it.
