4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Broke our trip from Sydney to Melbourne here on a recommendation from our son. Our room was in the older part of the building however the room itself had a clean modern bathroom and modern fixtures and furniture. The king bed was large and comfortable. The hotel offers a happy hour which was well attended on a Thursday. Had the eye fillet at the restaurant for dinner which was nice. Large portion and cooked well, I personally did n't like the pepper sauce (tasted a bit herby) however my husband enjoyed it. The breakfast next morning was good however the orange juice was n't, made from concentrate. We found all the staff to be friendly and efficient and seemed happy in their jobs. Great price for room.

Hotel in great location. Nice, clean and spacious rooms. Nice pool. Very pleasant staff in bar and restaurant apart from one particular grumpy bar waitress who could not be bothered and made it clear to patrons and residents that she did not want to be there. Excellent breakfast. Same cannot be said of the management. They are of a poor standard. Management does not communicate with key staff. Manager openly blames night staff for not talking to day staff. Manager does not communicate hotel policy to staff leaving staff confused and residents dissatisfied. Manager needs to take responsibility or move on. Expect staff turnover at this hotel as morale decreases. That would be a shame.

Great for a one night stay over A little expensive for where it is. Shower flooded entire bathroom due to no door or screen. Mini bar over stocked. Balcony nice but too small. Bed comfortable, air con ok noisey location. Staff friendly

Very friendly and professional staff. Could not fault check in or any other part of our stay. Older Building but very well maintained and nothing was to much trouble to the staff. Highly recommend this Inn to stay.

Had a recent overnight stay in a family room. Room clean, bedding comfy and fresh, bathroom clean, nice location across from Murray and park. I did however deduct 1 star due to the terrible smell coming from a blocked drain in the bathroom. As soon as we walked in the room it nearly knocked us out. The smell improved when shower turned on and door closed. To be fair we did not notify management due to not spending a lot of time in the room.

Room was clean & large. A/C was useless, considering it was 40 degrees it would’ve been nice if it had been switched on prior to arrival. Otherwise it was comfortable & reasonably quiet. Late checkout was good.

Consistently good. Food and service was as expected. Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Bar was ok, staff in the bar could have been more attentive. Restaurant staff were extremely helpful and engage.

From the outside it looks pretty much like any other 4* motel but what a surprise when you go inside! Courteously greeted at reception and directed to our room we were astounded to find such a spacious, modern king room. The small kitchenette is perfect for anyone wanting to dine in on a longer stay and the balcony refreshing (although beware they DO allow smokers on balconies) We had drinks at the bar overlooking the small pool before going elsewhere for dinner. Breakfast was a decent selection for continental including pastries & fresh fruit. Cooked breakfasts and barista coffee available freshly made at additional cost. The undercover car park is a bonus. Really enjoyed the riverside park across the road for an evening stroll and a little bit of exercise in the morning. Also an easy walk to the CBD.

We were disappointed with the customer service we received from reception. When the room was booked we asked for an early check in due to a function in the afternoon. Was spoken to rudely when ringing to see if the room was available for us to check in. On checking in and getting into the room it wasn’t the room we had booked. I had booked the same configuration of room as the last time as I knew the showers where walk in. One guest on crutches. We had a spa bath to climb into to have a shower. Was told that we couldn’t change rooms. The original room booked had a queen size bed in each room. Needed up with one queen and two singles instead. However, I will say that the room was spotless so the cleaners do a top job with the rooms. The beds are very comfortable to sleep in. The service we received at breakfast the next morning was exceptional and the food was delicious.

We were traveling from Sydney to Melbourne, and this was a good stop. We were a party of four - my husband and two kids aged 6 and 3. Too bad we checked in so late (9pm) but that was our fault. Late checkout was only a one hour extension. Food was exceptional. We had a late dinner, and our package included breakfast. For brekky, we had one dish each, and access to the buffet (bread, cereal, fruits, juice, drip coffee). The room was good... minor problems like aircon noisy and one side of the bed a bit depressed. But overall, ok. Comfortable and clean. We enjoyed.
