Well, what can i say?! Compared to where i had been staying, The Cavenagh (hostel/motel) was THE place to be. With great social facilities, this place is the way to go if you like a drink and music!
The rooms were great, not to small and with great facilities such as TV, fridge, unlimited tea and coffee and although basic, a bathroom. Also available are dorms with a communal kitchen and bathroom facilities. Facilities available for everyone include laundry facilities, a place to eat (for public use as well, same as the bar), internet access (open during reception hours) and a great pool and surrounding area. Also a bottle shop next door at reasonable prices! Laundry was dearer than other places i had been - $1.50 for powder, $3 for the use of the washing machine and $2 for the tumble dryer but free washing line! People staying at the hostel/motel also get a discounted internet fee.
Pool parties occur on a sunday with a live band and plenty of drink! However, the party can go on until late so that can be frustrating.
The menu available is varied with anything from pizzas to speciality sandwiches and more filling meals. The breakfast menu also has a great selection and prices are reasonable.
Unique Quality: The pool was very refreshing especially with the high temperatures.
