A perfect base for the few days I needed. The benefit of having a small kitchen area was the great appeal.

The location of the property was excellent or our purposes on the weekend. The room was generally clean and tidy but the floor tiles had not been cleaned for sometime and our feet got very dirty once we took our shoes off. On arrival we were requested to pay an additional $20 per night for parking i.e. an additional $60, which was not mentioned on the Wotif website. after negotiations we paid only $20 but this should be covered on the Wotif website.

While the hotel looks good in pictures and does have good furnishings, the floors and walls etc were filthy. It was so dirty that we couldn’t go barefoot in the room. Hair, dirt, dust and food were under the table, in corners, in the bathroom, and don’t even ask me what was under the bed. Glad we only slept there the night.
