5/5 Excellent

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

The hotel is small, renovated and close to restaurants and cafes. The room, number 16 is large and suited us for a three night stay. We felt very comfortable. However it was an upstairs room. I wouldn’t recommend the lower rooms facing the public carpark due to a lack of privacy curtains. The hotel is still in the process of being renovated but with a few finishing touches, it will be great. It was also very good to be able to use the laundry. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful.

Lovely premise - the bottom apartment I had felt clean, crisp, fresh and new - however the lack of privacy I was uncomfortable with. The unit I was in backs directly onto a carpark and there are no nets to provide any privacy. I had to draw the curtains at 7pm to get privacy. Extremely harsh lights in the bathroom also.

The room was just immaculately clean, and I loved the shower dome that precluded a bathroom fan keeping me awake! Couldn't find the wifi password though, and it was too late to go knocking on doors by then.
