4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel in a relatively convenient location. Rooms are well equipped with kitchen and laundry. Marked down for not having a tv in the bedroom and a pretty average breakfast. Found better value at the Avenue down the road.

Clean and tidy and conveniently located to restaurants and shops. Reception staff efficient and taxis arrived when requested. Apartment didn't have oven or TV in the bedroom if that's important to you.

Great place to stay for a family. Close to cbd. Rooms adequate. Easy access from car park to room. Staff were friendly. Easy check in and check out. Close to shops and restaurants. Kids loved it had a ball.

The staff were very friendly, courteous and obliging. Great location however room lacks soundproofing, we could hear next door guests activities and movements and the brawling noise from the streets at night. Still good value.

Convenient to the city, friendly and professional staff, and secure parking. parking charges were reasonable. The only disappointment was the fact that the room amenities were not up to standard. There were cleaning residues/water marks on the kitchen bench and the the shower arm was not secured.

The room was a good size but there were a number of issues with our two bedroom suite: 1. the stove had not been cleaned at all. There was burnt noodles under the elements some sort of creamy sauce had spilled and had not been cleaned up and the whole stove top was just filthy. 2. Many of the cooking pots had not been cleaned at all, one lid was dripping with oil and herbs from a previous guest. All had to be cleaned thoroughly before use. 3. The mould in the shower was disgusting! For goodness sake buy some mould killer, or a good scrubbing brush and clean the grout, around the taps, handles and shelf. 4. there was a large rip in the bedroom curtains 5. For a two bedroom unit you would expect at least 4 plates, bowls and glasses. plus crockery but alas, this was not the case. I complained to the front desk and housekeeping was sent up to clean the stove. This motel is in a great location, but there are other hotels close by that we have stayed in before that are much cleaner.

After 6 years of using this hotel one of my staff arrived last night to find the room unprepared.This was despite twice informing Reception that I was flying out and he was flying in. They had no record of his arrival, so he sat at Reception for 30 minutes.

Very comfortable rooms and friendly service. The location is fantastic for those who like to walk or ride and explore the city. The bathroom in our room was of an older style and require stepping up into a bath and this may be a problem for older people or anyone with mobility issues. there may be more mobility friendly rooms in the hotel.

We thought our first greeting very professional rooms well equipped & comfortable restaurant very friendly food very nice & well priced location excellent walking distance to restaurants & cafes staff were friendly parking tight but okay would stay there again.

We stayed for one night over Easter to visit the war Memorial with my wife and teenage son. We had a one bedroom apartment that included a fold out for my son in the main living area. On the plus side the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked well and staff were accommodating. On the down side the sofa pull out was extremely uncomfortable, the $15 to park is outrageous and the buffet breakfast selection is one of the smallest I have ever seen with nothing replenished in the 45 minutes we were there.
