  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Love the bistro and close location to the private hospital. The accommodation was basic but clean. Traffic from a major road was noisy even with the window closed. I think with a spruce up, new paint and flooring the accommodation would be improved . Will bring ear plugs next time.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very noisy with construction running outside. Not what we expected, extremely misleading ad. Images on add only showed the ‘expensive’ rooms. Kitchen had roaches and the door in the kitchen which lead to the back of the property was always open which didn’t help with the mess. Shared bathrooms were ok.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Room was not as pictured was so small could hardly get past the bed. Bed was badly curved to the centre

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Its under renovation and the pub is pretty noisy. The kitchenette is 1950s at best, with a TINY fridge so not really suitable which makes the pib the only rwal option for food as theres nothing else near by either. Good for a place to stop but dont expect too much, just the basics

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The facilities were quite old, but the price of $66 pre night was really good. I was ask to have ID and credit card scanned, and a $100 pre-auth was taken when I checked in.
