It’s in a good position though parking is difficult. We had to move the car every two hours from 8am. Room is tiny. There were no blankets just a sheet and light cover so we had to keep the heater on all night as it’s the middle of winter. Ok for a quick overnight overall. Like a youth hostel.

Was over charged twice to the sum on nearly $300, every contact number goes to message bank or is ignored.

Only downside to my stay was other guests being inconsiderate with the noise levels.

I was there for a very short time, but the room was clean and staff helpful. Some guests weren't very good at flushing the toilet in the shared bathroom facilities but otherwise it was a pleasant place to stay.
