The apartments were ideally located and there was secure parking onsite (for an additional fee). The real downside was the bedding - blankets instead of doonas and these proved to make a very restless nights sleep.

Dear Anon Thank you for your feedback! glad to hear you liked the cleanliness of the room we will let the housekeepers know :) Unfortunately the noice are unavoidable due to the location of the hotel being in the middle of everything. However there are gates and night patrols to keep everything in check, looking forward to see you next time!

The only thing good about this property is the location. The toilet ran all night, the bed was so uncomfortable! The general look of the apartment was very tried (ripped carpet, cracked walls) Not a great experience. Was supposed to stay two nights but only stayed one, and didn’t sleep!

Dear Anon Thank you for your valuable feedback, as you probably see the notice on the reception desk, the new management only just took over and are in the process of upgrading the apartments one by one, its an old establishment which needs a bit of work done to it, but perhaps you will come back next time and find a nice surprise :) we wish you a great day and hopefully see you again

Great location but the sash Windows didn't work properly (had to be propped open) but we surely need to air a bit of mustiness. Someone there said they were planning to paint the windows permanently shut - a very bad idea. Otherwise everything worked. Front desk efficient even charming. Price ok. Our one bed flat more than spacious enough

Location is excellent and good value for money. Very clean could do with a freshen up as a bit old and worn.
