Very well located close to all tourist attractions and the city centre. Also walking distance from the beautiful Lake Wendouree. We were very happy with the service from staff who were very friendly and accomodating to any request we had.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room was very comfortable and well-appointed with a fridge and Nespresso coffee maker. The Inn is near the lake, close to a supermarket, pharmacy,deli and coffee shop so the location is very convenient. Parking was onsite and included in the rate, so altogether we had a great time and found nothing to complain about.

Location - just one short block from Lake Wendouree - was excellent for our visit, with meal options at lake-shore venues very close by and the botanical gardens not far beyond. Staff - Rhonda particularly - was most helpful and obliging.
