Loved the location a short stroll from Lake Wendouree. Some parking spots a little tight for room.

Hi Julie, thanks for the feedback on how clean your room was! We're working through a replacement program at the moment. Thanks again!

The room was very spacious and clean. Loved that the windows could be opened for fresh air and it was quiet and secure enough to sleep with the window open. Great facilities - kettle, toaster, iron. The only annoying thing was that the sliding bathroom door didn't close easily and took a lot of effort to slide shut.
