When I visited Mary Mackillop'Place, I didn't have any religious affection. Because of her goodness, for her lifestyle, for her determination, holy, or not holy I respect her. Australia is proud of her as the first and only Catholic Saint of her homeland. In this...More

Location was ideal, Chapel was nice but assistance from the front desk not always helpful. Although the sheets/pillows weren't as clean as expected, the rooms were comfortable enough. I'm hoping others have had better experiences for the cost involved.
