The was dingy and smelt terrible. There was a pedestal fan for air flow. Window wouldn’t open. I realise that we stayed in peak holiday time, however $140 pn was overpriced.

Don't bother staying here. It's ancient. The door room doesn't close. (room10) . It's noisy, above the bar. Doors slam or don't close at all. Room 10 above the bar and at the front got all the noise. Have barely slept. Road sweeper at 4.30 am. And in July it's freezing. Definitely not a family room or hotel. Won't be staying again.

first experience of backpackers situation

Pros: The staff were OK.
Cons: The accommodation.
Because the scheduled accommodation was so bad I ended up looking for accommodation at Maclean hotel. It turned out to be a bunk bed in a small wooden room with no windows and 5 other guys apparently asleep even though karaoke was booming downstairs. When I opened the door the room was hot and stuffy and pitch black. There was no way I could stay there. I got a refund and with no alternatives left ended up sleeping in the car at an all night garage.

Clean room - free internet doesnt connect in room

Friendly old pub. But 'free wifi' is not really true as such bad service u cant connect in your room. Also no cold tap available in our room - only hot. Plus ' breakfast included' was misleading. Did not include meal in dining room but lf serve cereal and toast in common room.

Overpriced really

Booked a room for 2 adults and 2 children, showed up on the weekend to find we were getting a room with 2 bunk beds, changed room for a room with one double bed. Felt it was way overpriced for a room with just a bed in it with no other facilities in the room
