      Staff saved the day”

      I drove right past the Penny Royal and ended up parking in their adventure park parking area - about 200mt from Reception. I was travelling alone with my 18month old son. I walked down and when I got to reception I was less than thrilled. Then I discovered that the room the had put me in was at the top of a tonne of stairs - which were going to be fun scaling with said child, pram, suitcase etc. The staff kindly offered to move me to a ground floor room, and were super polite about it. Checkout the next day was a breeze. We are going back in a month.

      Pros - Large clean room with a large well appointed bathroom. Parking at the back of the site. Restaurant/tavern just across the driveway. Very close to the CBD, main roads to the north and south plus near Cataract Gorge, river and James Boag Brewery. Cons - motel driveway can be very noisy at night and early morning. Highly recommend this establishment.

      Cosy Hotel”

      Love everything about the hotel. The staffs were friendly during check in and check out. The rooms were lovely and spacious. The only issue we had was we were staying at the top deck at level 2, the soundproof ain't that good and walking on stairways will disturb our neighbours as the residents staying below us came out to keep our volumn down. Didn't really like that since we were only moving our luggages upstairs only. Apart from that, we really enjoyed our stay.

      Very friendly staff. The hotel itself is a historic building which is very beautiful. Our room is spacious and quiet but the only weakness is that there is no lift and we have climbed the stairs with our luggage to the room. Luckily we were only on the 2nd floor. It is also great to have free wifi and parking in the hotel. The hotel's location is good which is close to famous restaurant and Cataract Gorge.

      We really enjoyed staying at the hotel, the stones made by the convicts and transported to its current location - what a piece of history! The water mill is also a great sight, and the historic Gourlay Sweets Shop on site. The staff are helpful and the room is clean. The wi-fi is on a new system so bear with the change. Across the road at Mill Providore the local produce is abundant for a picnic, and Stillwater is a perfect dining place. We will definitely be returning to this hotel!
