The staff and food were fantastic, the room was dated and there is no parking, the no parking was the biggest problem because the bar is in a busy street in the city, expensive!

Good that it was right in town, but would've prefered if they didn't leave the reception unattended all night and in the morning when checking out. Basic rooms and amenities. Alright for price I guess

We were in the twin room. The shower door leaked and flooded the floor every time we had a shower. We had no issue with the noise from the bar downstairs, however we were not warned that there would be a very loud party on our floor only a couple of doors down, where there was very loud music until well past midnight. The room was also very stuffy as there were no external windows and no ventilation, so we had to leave our door open half the time so that we could get some fresh(ish) air in.

There were no blinds on the window to stop the morning light. The room was stifling hot but opening the window let in the noise and smell of the extractor fan from the kitchen, and a prodigious number of mosquitoes. And the previous guest's toenail clippings hadn't been vacuumed up.

Rolled in on a Sunday, very quiet had the place to myself, the location was perfect however no free parking left me to move the car at least 1km away every day to avoid getting fined rather than paying excess $25 a day, staff were great pricing was decent

You have to be kidding

Due to start a wilderness walk in the morning, retired for hopefully restful sleep.....Star Bar Saturday night included a jack-hammer loud doof doof DJ type set up 4meters and 1 single pane glass door from my door/ear drums, through to 12.30. No pre-warning, zero duty of care, NEVER again. Advice, don’t go there.
