This hotel is old and lacking in maintenance. There is a heater in the room (note: heater, not air con). I've counted 3 electrical problems in the room. Now that I've got my complaints out of the way, the room (upstairs) has a comfortable bed, a bathroom and a LCD TV, which is what's most important to me (especially the...

It's a cheap motel, and as such was fine. Clean and quiet, very central. Could do with new duvet covers and the rooms are tired, but it's also very cheap. It had everything we needed. The lady on the front desk was lovely and friendly, i slept like a log so bed was fine. I got an ensuite room and...

Rooms we rented were run down, old carpet, old bench tops, run down bath/shower But as we were on a budget and it was super cheap it was all we needed for the night. Was good location. Friendly staff.

The picture on the web didn't quiet match reality. I knew we booked a budget room for a quick stop in the middle of the night from an international flight, however I didn't expect the mattress to fold in half when I sat on it. Staff we're pleasant and polite, room and shared bathroom was spotless although old. I felt...

Very basic and outdated which would be fine if the price matched. Slept comfortably but water stains on ceilings and bathroom needs repairs. Our previous nights accommodation was $50 less and was far superior.

Used this hotel because they accepted Bartercard. Rooms were shabby. For instance a hole in one of the doors had been plastered up and not even sanded and painted. Staff were generally a bit 'stand-offish". Not quite rude but bordering on it. Very expensive for what was on offer and the area it is in and it didn't even have...

Rooms here are way overpriced and very outdated, Was disgusted with what I paid for, I have stayed at other motels which now seem to be luxury accommodation compared to this at the same price. There was a few of us that had booked in for a nights stay, all disgusted.... The lady on the reception desk was rude when...
