Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The lodge was located in a convenient location, close to restaurants and the city. Ample parking is available on site. The room was spacious with a table and two chairs, two lounge chairs. Some cooking facilities were available, microwave, toaster and electric fry pan. Bathroom was of a good size, light and airy. Within walking distance were numerous restaurants.

Receptionist and Manager friendly, informed, helpful. Rooms clean, large size, beds warm (warmer than in the states: they actually give you blankets! ) Walking distance to restaurants, grocery, botanical gardens, museum, access to tram, activities, city bus (which by the way is very convenient and inexpensive. Don't mess with a taxi or a shuttle if you don't have to). Laundry...

Good hotel, we checked in with heaps of gear after a rally, staff accommodated us very well, provided storage etc. Tip top. Well worth the money and a good location, walkable to CBD and city attractions.

We'd a spacious room but it was a little dark. We had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The lady on reception was very helpful also! There was noise from the room upstairs though via light floorboards but it wasn't disruptive.

This room was quite large with a separate bedroom. There was a full kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a large TV in the sitting room and another in the bedroom. You are within walking distance of downtown and many restaurants.

I don’t want to be too harsh but we simply wanted peace and quiet – we got that here 10 years ago. These days, generally speaking, it seems that’s an ambitious goal. In fairness, my initial one night stay in Unit 9, whilst on tour with clients, was perfectly fine. No issue. I should have asked for this unit again...

We were a party of nine (extended family) and moved here after a bad experience at a nearby motel. Our unit was modern, clean and well equipped.
