    Clean serviceable rooms for a good price. Easy walking distance to parliament house. Bathroom was rather compact but good pressure from the shower. Complimentary newspaper was a nice surprise. Would stay there again.

    Clean comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. Although the bathroom is a little poky. $10 taxi ride to Parliament House. Breakfast was one of the nicest breakys I've had in a long time with friendly efficient service.
