Very affordable, you get what you pay for. Didn’t like share bathroom/toilet. Not very well marked to find room. Dinner average, grilled fish tasted as if it had been defrosted and not cooked at all, cold. Staff friendly and pleasant. I suppose you get what you pay for.

Hi Damien! I'm very sorry to hear that the cleaning was not up to our standard with the coffee cups this is disappointing to hear. I will pass your review on to our cleaners to ensure they are checking every thing in the room.

Old fashioned but clean. Right next door to Dan Murphy's. Might be good for some but not us, especially getting written up at 6am by the alarm! Otherwise close to everything and house of schnitzel good
