the room we had certainly could of done with a freshen up walls, fan and blinds were dirty and paint peeling off the wall. the exhaust fan needs to be replaced as it does not extract steam from the bathroom and plumbing is very noisy. Bed was comfortable.

The Ansonia on Lydiard is a very lovely boutique hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel has plenty of charm and Cameron was extremely helpful when we checked in & out. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again.
