The room was really nice and very clean but the smell of the room was not pleasant. Old musty smell. The stairs going up to the rooms were not ideal as they’re very steep and an elderly person or one with knee problems would have trouble going up them.

Hi Niki and Thank you for your feedback. Please tell us immediately if there is anything amiss in your room, we could have changed you to another room or taken steps to make sure your room smells nice. We are sorry to hear that you had a musty smell in your room. Rooms are sprayed with Lavender nice smelling spray after they are cleaned and surfaces wiped down and we also regularly check/clean our drains in the bathroom which sometimes can cause a smell, we also have carpets steam cleaned on a regular basis to keep them fresh and clean, anyway we apologise if your room smelled bad we will make sure this is checked prior to check-in, especially if a room has been empty for a few days. If any guests have difficulty with navigating the staircases please give us a call we have staff available to assist with carrying your suitcases down to your car at check-out or carrying them up when you are checking-in. The reason we do this is because our Historically protected building does not have an elevator, it is original, just the way it was 101 years ago.

Unfortunately the experience we had wasn’t as we’d expected. Whether it was a fault of Wotif or the property itself, I’m not sure. When we booked the property, our search was set for 2 adults and 3 kids. Wotif’s offer also mentioned free continental breakfast. Not only was breakfast not included, we got there to check in and were staggered to find that we had to pay another $90 for the children. Check in was phoning a number and getting a code which I’m fine with, however there was a staff member readily available at 9:30pm to knock on my door to tell me that the card I’d given for the safety deposit had failed. Whilst the $150 safety deposit was refunded in a timely manner, it seemed excessive and wasn’t mentioned when booking. I can’t fault the room, but the experience with the staff has put me off returning.

Dear Guest Firstly Thanks for your comment "I cant fault the room" This is a positive comment about the 3 bedroom Executive Spa Suite with a Spa Bath, 2 single beds, 1 Queen bed and 1 King bed. It has a separate lounge with couches, Huge Flatscreen TV with DVD Player and surround sound system and a separate dining table with 6 chairs for the family to share a nice dinner, a full size kitchen with flat glass top 4 cooker stove, a full size oven and a Large family size refrigerator/Freezer. We are very sorry to hear that you were unable to have the complimentary Continental breakfast, unfortunately this directive is from SA Police that we can no longer serve free continental breakfast as part of our COVID19 Safe Plan. If we dont follow this directive, then as a business, we can be shutdown but more importantly someone could accidentally pass on a virus. With regards to paying extra for the 3 extra guests in the apartment. You made a reservation for 2 people. Two Adults. The reason you paid $90 extra is because you made a reservation for 2 people and you showed up with 5. When you are making a reservation it is very important to be honest and accurate. You don't get on the bus with 5 people and buy 2 bus tickets? Same in a Hotel. If you are a family of 5 people, make a reservation for 5 people, not 2 people. If there is a fire and the lights are off and its dark a member of our staff or even a Fireman may enter the room and drag out 2 people. What will happen to the 3 other people left inside??? because they were not recorded on the reservation? The Safety of our guests is of Paramount importance to us. I use Expedia/WOTIF to list my Hotel as a Supplier. I also use WOTIF to book Hotel rooms as a customer /Guest. When you make a booking there is a drop downlist where you have to select how many people are staying. If you had selected the correct number of guests in your party you could have paid the correct amount and a staff member would not need to charge you $90 more at checkin. Just to explain. the reason a staff member had to come to your room was because your card did not work. a $150 security deposit has to be paid at checkin, this is refunded on the day of checkout. There is NO point in having a card that does not work as a security deposit. If you had consumed a bottle of wine from the minibar, there is no point to charge a creditcard that does not work. So once again, use a card that works, not just with us, but with any Hotel that you are staying at, and then you will not be disturbed by Hotel staff. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

I stayed at this property with two children over a very hot weekend. This property is deceptively good! It's in an established heritage style old building and on first glance appears it will be tired and uncomfortable. Note there are steep stairs yet this was made clear before booking in so we were aware. The age and setting might suggest a downturn in quality. Truth is once you enter the rooms they are of an honest 5 star quality in terms of linens, shower facilities and cleanliness! We opted for the Deluxe King suite - as we'd read the description and knew this secured a private bathroom. There are ones with shared bathroom, which was still very very clean, however if privacy concerns you choose one with its own facilities. The cost is still very reasonable for such. The room was sparkling clean, the air conditioning and ceiling fans work extremely well even in 42 degree heat, and everything "quality". Sleepmaker mattresses. Tontine pillows. Crisp 100% cotton bedding. Lovely choice of Bremerton wines if mini-bar attracts you, and good crockery/cutlery. It did not feel like a low to mid range hotel once you're in the rooms themselves. Don't let the exterior deter you. It's truly a case of don't judge a book by its cover. Breakfasts are simple yet convenient. Staff are lovely and management very reasonable and understanding. Be an informed traveller here and you won't be disappointed. We loved our time here.

Thank you for your feedback and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the double shower which all our ensuite rooms have. Yes some of the floors have creaky floorboards and we have made no effort to change that because we believe that is part of the character of staying in a heritage protected building which is over 100 years old. but as you know our ensuite rooms are redecorated to a more modren style on the inside. We will investigate and repair to make sure that the bathroom lock is working. Thank you for letting us know about that

Liked the bathroom and sofa and that we had a back room. Foot traffic noise up and down the hallway was a bit concerning buy only happened in the morning. Generally ok.

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.
