Stayed one night. Was surprised how good it was for the low price. Room was basic but clean. Everything you needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast was supplied in room. Cereal, bread, milk and fruit juice.

My children and I stayed here for one night recently, and it was comfortable. Nothing flash, but we only wanted somewhere to sleep. Family room was big enough for four adults. Everything was clean and tidy, and a basic breakfast was provided and included in the price. I found the room to be quite and couldn't hear the traffic from...

Reading other reviews thought this place was a dump but more like a hidden gem. I found the crockery in the microwave oven (brilliant place to put them). The refrigerator though noisy can be switched off at the wall keeping the contents cold overnight. The breakfast great. Very comfortable bed and pillows. The two local pubs nearby have a great...

The place is old and a bit run down, supplied breakfast was cereal with UHT milk and no bowls. I would not recommend this for a family for more than a night or 2. The people going up and down the back stairs sounded like a herd of elephants.

I would think twice about staying here. The price is ok. BUT rooms are a little rundown, fittings look in need of replacement. We had an issue on checking in when my found hair on the bed sheet. This was replaced quickly but not a great start. This place is well served by transport with lots of eateries round it....

Found this hotel for a boys weekend in town and for this and only this it fit the bill. This hotel is not the Hilton by any stretch of the imagination, but it was cheap, and in the right location. Might come back...but not with the wife!

I stayed 4 nights with my husband. We had an incredible time. The motel is located a few minutes by train from the CBD. The room was very clean and comfortable, well equipped. Jimmy, the receptionist was very helpful. Includes a nice breakkie for two. Will certainly recommend this place for a good time!

essentials missing. I was given breakfast ceral packets but no bowls to eat out of. I was given a shower cap but no face washer, so that was a bit weird, no reception open to ask at night. It was a little noisy as the rooms are basically on top of each other and close to very noisy stairs. Apart...

Booked in, whilst I was in Melbourne, room was clean enough, bed was comfortable, air con worked well, the fridge in my room was very noisy, made terrible noises all night to the point I would switch it off, bathroom was not cleaned properly, but the BEST water pressure I have ever had! Was supposed to have a DVD player...
