Great location, clean rooms. Balcony room was a bit noisy but they close the pub at 1130pm so it wasn’t too bad.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the property and room was clean. The hotel is in a good location easily accessible by light rail and close to the Honeysuckle precinct with restaurants and bars.

Well located, close to Civic Theatre so the perfect place to stay if seeing a show. Very clean and tidy rooms and the staff were super helpful. Food looked awesome. Unfortunately the kitchen closed for dinner way too early (our show finished at 9pm. The kitchen had already closed). So we will never know if the food tasted as good as it looked.

Thanks for your review and feedback - we want to let you know that all of our windows are sealed shut. This is common practice for hotels and something we must do. All of our windows are also double glazed for soundproofing. We are excitingly looking at a refurbishment soon!
