Fair 4.0
There was a mouldy smell in my room which made it difficult to breathe. Linen and towels were clean but towels were hard and had a tear. The communal kitchen also had a bar smell, a mix of old oil and a gas leak. staff were friendly. I didn't stay for breakfast.

Fair 4.0
Dirty place
The place was very dirty. The shower was very inconvenient because it was in the bath and water was all over the room when taking a shower. The dog nearly bite me and the cats follow guests. Breakfast was acceptable. There was loud noise on daily basis from the neighbouring place.

Poor 2.0
It was very disappointing experience. When we walked in to hotel we couldn't find anybody in the reception for 2 hours almost. And the guy appeared with robe on him.. the room was terribly dirty. We saw the dogs on the aisle of rooms..

Exceptional 10.0
Nightlive and Secluded
Absolutely fabulous place, 10 meters from Mellville 7th Street but secluded and quit. The owners are lovely, the service is great and the house is a piece of art, all fits just perfect!
