Receptionist was helpful and welcoming and the room was nice and clean. Great sized comfortable bed and simple layout, the large window had a nice view of the old church opposite and made the room have brilliant light. Definitely worth your money and was a great price. If you're staying on a weekend be prepared for noise from night clubs... More

Ok people, it's a budget hotel so please keep that in mind. Pros: clean, great location, has a shared kitchen for those on a budget. There was a farmers' market practically across the street (Saturday morning), is walking distance to the Cataract Gorge walk (beautiful), a wonderful City Park, and great eateries. Cons: it's the bare essentials, price isn't 'budget'... More

With a family of 5 the room was spacious enough. A short walk to the botanical gardens and monkeys which the kids enjoyed. Was a bit hard to sleep when above a night club with loud music, parking was a but limited and difficult to get car in and out.

Lets start with okay/good - good bedding, okay bathroom. Faulty tv. Good supply of coffee/tea making amenities.
