Entry door was warped and did not allow second closure to engage; peeling paint and mould in bathroom; some surfaces with visible dust and dirt - would not recommend.

Clean, comfy, fairly basic

We chose this hotel for convenience while attending a friends wedding. It was walking distance to nearby restaurants. The room was clean, the bed comfy and had a really good shower.

Had Wotif booking but no room

Front desk rude and didn’t care that I was booked in but there was no room and offered no assistance. Interacting with their cell phone was far more important! Later when Wotif called to find out what happened they claimed I was a “no show”. My car’s GPS tells a different story.

It was conveniently close to the venue we attended

The biggest shock is that we paid $120 for the room, yet they gave us a receipt for $102. Unfortunately I did not have my glasses on and merely trusted them to give us the correct details.
