Spacious and comfortable unit, but a little dated and tired. Curtains, windows and balcony area in need of attention or cleaning. Otherwise clean and very well located. Very friendly staff at reception.

Loved the staff, location (light rail almost at the door), cleanliness, blockout curtains...best sleep in ages, 24 hour check in a bonus Not like: location of pool, gym and sauna (unavoidable though), parking isn't just hotel guests

Centrally located this Hotel ticks all the boxes for a young family. Having had to evacuate the NSW Bushfires at short notice with 3 young children and leaving my partner behind, it was comforting to walk into hotel and be greeted with such a friendly smile and relaxed vibe. The restaurant is convenient, yet delicious. But what makes this property a 10 out of 10 is hands down the staff. Every.single.staff.member was courteous, polite, friendly and just overall happy. And as someone with extensively experience in the hospitality experience, I can often be quite critical regarding this. I did find it a little expensive ($1432 for 5 nights) but given our circumstances and the last minute booking I had no choice.

Fantastic location, right near restaurants and bars in Braddon, which saves having to take the car everywhere, but it's still nice and quiet in the room. Plenty of parking spaces, and the room was spacious, clean and bright. Staff were super friendly and helpful, so check in and out was quick and easy. Only issue is a personal preference - the pillows were super soft (but so we slept on two each) - would be great to have the option of a firmer one being in the room to use.
