    Pleasantly surprised ”

    Large bathroom bench was a plus for me! Loved the soft beige towels (much better than white). Plenty of power points for charging mod-cons and the microwave was an unexpected bonus. Excellent location for golfers playing at Maryborough Golf Course and close to shops/fast food outlets. Would happily stay there again.
