      Comfortable and clean, fun place to stay

      Only stayed for a night but I liked it. Quiet enough to take a nap during the day after a long flight. Worked for a bit in the bar lounge next door until about 8PM when it got pretty busy. Nice place to get a private room in, would recommend.

      Great location. Well priced. Easy to get to city. Can be noisy at nights with bar down stairs. Staff friendly and helpful. Clean and great adherence to covid protocols.

      Nice and clean and friendly staff, although severe confusion when I didn’t have a physical credit card (I don’t know anyone that carries these anymore?), and needs a more powerful air conditioning unit in room during summer.

      Did well what it said on the packet

      We stayed in a twin room which was a tiny room with bunk beds, though it met our needs and we were very pleased to find the en-suite is right next door and shared with one other room. The bar downstairs, Birdees, was having an open mic night (Tues) so it was really lucky to be staying there and meeting some of the incredible local talent hosting (Caillin Malley) and they did a great job of getting the guests involved! I even got a gig out of it... We had a great time, scouting a Thai restaurant across the road (as recommended by the lady who checked us in) and breakfast nearby. Happy campers 🙏 Pepper Jane
