restful room, in a great location close to Thirroul Beach

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my 2 day stay very much, a large, quiet room, lovely bathroom,

and easy going host.

Thirroul has much to offer in cafes, restaurants, and the beach. Take time to to visit the war memorial located in a garden park near the railway station.
