Property condition


  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

We stayed here for two nights in early November 2019. The price was good. The location is good. It is an old building, like many in this part of town - it was reasonably kept, but a long way from charming. The bed was comfortable enough, king size, but sadly made up with queen size linen. The TV worked - the fridge did not. The curtains did a reasonable job of blockout. The carpet was light in colour and showed any stains - there was quite a few. The ‘hot’ water barely rose above the level of warm and was inconsistently delivered. The bathroom was useable, but very small, such that there was nowhere to mount a toilet roll holder (the roll was left sitting on top of the cistern). If price and location are your key aims, you may well be happy. If you are looking for anything more, try somewhere else. (Parking is quoted at $40/night at a nearby Wilson car park - you can book a bay at other Wilson car parks just as close for less.)

Stayed 2 nights in Oct. 2019


    Noisy as it is very central, could do with renovations or sound-proofing/insulation - but great location!

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Hotel room was smelling, mould everywhere. Windows dirty, carpet dirty. Can’t stay there for a night

    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

    Very central which was great. The carpet in the room was a bit gross and had some marks, half of the shower head didn’t work.
