Stayed 1 night (as we are travelling south), an old building with very thin walls. Even though we paid for a superior suite (which looked great) and requested a quite room, it was very noisy (squeaky floors and banging doors and thin walls...and loud shower/water). The reception was on the 2nd floor right outside our room (Room 9).

Hello and Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry if you found that the walls were thin, all our walls are of standard thickness as according to the building code. Room 9 is one of our more quiet rooms because it is stand-alone and it is not next to any other room. However we are very sorry to hear that you were disturbed by loud noises. Out hotel is 100 years old and as a historic building yes there are some creaky floor boards and we also have some 6 inch solid rock walls which are very old, so some of those noises are the rustic charm of staying in a 100 year old historically protected building. With regards to doors slamming Yes unfortunately some guests so slam their doors instead of closing them quietly we apologise for this and we are taking steps to install slow auto-door closers with padded buffers so that when a door closes by itself it will make less noise, So please be aware we are addressing this issue and we Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Room was well appointed and comfortable renovated old lodging, share bathrooms clean but a bit tired, more facilities in men's side than ladies! No significant noise from street or nearby pub the night we were there. Continental breakfast was a bit marginal, with water cooler run out of water, limited qty cereal, out of date milk cartons in fridge - luckily found unopened UHT in cupboard, and adequate toasting bread and toppings. Free wifi worked. Overall fair value for what we spent.

Thank you for your feedback, Sorry the Watercooler had run out of water we try to fill it once a day but sometimes people fill their waterbottles and we will try to keep an eye on it more during the day! The Continental Breakfast is museli with fruit, or Cornflakes both with milk. We keep UHT milk both in the fridge and there is a spare carton in the cupboard just in case the one in fridge is empty. As well as this we also offer toast, so in the freezer there is brown bread, white bread, Fruit bread and Gluten free Bread. With Toast we offer marmite, vegemite, peanut butter, honey and strawberrry jam, as well as butter and margarine. The Breakfast is complimentary and available to everyone, regardless of which room type you are in. Please be aware that guests may store their own food or milk in the refrigerator as well, so be careful to label your stuff so that other guests do not accidently eat your food in the shared refrigerator. Rooms with a private ensuite do have a private fridge in the room.

Great staff but the lodge is unmanned most of the time. Just the one key is not helpful, especially since the front door is often locked. Great balcony. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the premises. A drawback for smokers who need to go outside on the footpath.

Quirky motel. Reception directly outside my room in a corridor - paper thin walls so felt like I was partaking in every check in. Very clean, comfortable bed and awesome shower.

not worth the money

Pros: you can walk to the shops
Cons: extra staff on hand
Location: close to everything walking distance
it seemed like the owner had little idea about running the place very casual but nice the office was very untidy papers all over the floor i have been there 10 years ago but it would be cheaper to stay across the road were the pup is for cheaper

Thanks for your feedback. Having extra staff on hand I thought was a Pro not a Con but hey thats just me? Yes my office is messy we concentrate all our efforts to ensure that the guestrooms and suites are spotless and squeaky clean so that our guests have an enjoyable stay.
