Hi Anon, I am sorry you only thought there was 1 shower available. There are 2 showers available for guest use which I show people when I check them in. You are right, 1 shower would definitely not be enough. Apart from that, I do hope you enjoyed your stay with us. Cheers Kim

Great value for money in a very central location. The room is basic, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Very clean and nicely styled. The shared bathrooms were cleaner and nicer than any other budget accomodation I've stayed in, even those with private bathrooms.

Staff were very friendly. Food was great. I found it odd that there were no internal doors on the apartment - there are doorways between the lounge area and the bedroom and the bedroom and the bathroom and the bathroom and the toilet but no doors. Which means everything is open. You cannot close off the toilet from the bathroom and bedroom when you are in there.

Hi Paul, thanks for your comments, especially about the no doors in the apartment. As the Courthouse was built in the 1850's and has had some modifications since then, I think it's fair to say that not all modern conveniences are available in such an old building. As it has been modified over the years, I cannot pinpoint when there were doors there. The doorways are fairly narrow and the toilet and shower are set right back in the bathroom so there is no way see someone using these conveniences from the bedroom, let alone the lounge, kitchen & dining area. The Apartment only has a queen size bed, so therefore the guests should know each other quite well!!! We do not think that doors are an issue in the Apartment and neither have the other guests who have stayed there over the past 12 months. Nevertheless we appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

Historic ptoperty hotel dates from 1857. Basic facilities are offered but at a low tariff. Toilet and shower are located outside the hotel room but both are clean and shower is large. The room.lacks an ironing board and iron and.the wifi is difficult to connect to. Despite a few drawbacks the hotel is centrally located and offers excellent value for money.

Hi Guest, thanks for your review. Yes an iron & ironing board is a great idea & thanks to you bringing this to our attention, we will purchase one for future guests. We are in the process of changing to the nbn network and it has just been rolled out in Ararat and hope that will help with the wifi issues you were having. Thanks for letting us know & hope you have a Merry Christmas.

I had a great stop over here, the bathroom was only a short walk from my room which was an excellent price. There was a slight wait for a bathroom in the morning but that can't be helped, it was a very nice stay!

We very much appreciate your review. Thankyou very much. There is another bathroom right at the end that you might not have seen, which let's us know we need to put up signage for guests, that's why your feedback is so valuable. Thanks again.
