Pros:This stay definitely had a story that came with it (being a retired jail) Staff was very helpful in giving directions to attractions around town (Sink Hole and Blue Lake) Kitchens were well equipped for dinner and breakfast Fantastic break while doing the great ocean road- quaint town with anything you would need
Cons:The location was not the most walking-friendly to shops or attractions Wifi was slow and only available in 1 room There weren't many other guests, so things were a little quiet on a Wednesday night
