Have stayed here before. It is getting a bit tired. Pleasant enough, but a bit tired.

The rooms were fine. The bar and eating areas could be much improved.

Very clean, they upgraded us to a loft for sleeping, which provided a lot of space for us downstairs and therefore was very good value. The only thing we did not like was paying $10 a day to park our car in the hotel, that is poor form.

There was a pipe, probably air conditioning which banged intermittenttly all night long in the ceiling or wall of our room so it was hard to sleep. This needs to be fixed.

Liked the history and charm of the hotel. Also liked the fact that a bar was located onsite. Will be visiting this hotel in the near future as it was handy to the city and AWM.

It is a character hotel I have stayed at before many years ago. A lift would be a bit of modernisation I could handle.
