Stayed in this guesthouse while travelling the east coast. The rooms are nice and the building was quiet. Good value for money I felt. There was a bus about 2 minute walk which takes you to the main train station. Can't really say anything bad about it.

Tucked away in suburbia away from the partying crowds, but moments away from shops & cafe's, this was a great find. I stayed for 5 nights and could happily have stayed longer. The rooms are clean and equipped with a microwave, kettle and fridge. Nala and Jacquie could not have been more helpful with their local knowledge and help in... More

I stayed for a few nights while i was re-locating. It was uncomfortable and dirty. Not to mention the half way house for ex prisoners across the road with frequent police visits in the middle of the night. There was a mop and bucket outside my door with dirty water in it. This is so you could mop the shower... More

We stayed at Ellie's Guesthouse for a night. Not good for the money charged. A tiny room, no aircon, only a fan,very uncomfortable on a hot night. No soap.We decided to leave the next morning and found a 10-times better accommodation at Spring Hill, with a balcony view and soap and it was 4 dollars cheaper! The lady would not... More

The outstanding feature of Ellie's Guesthouse is hospitality extended by the owners. They are ready to extend help and brief you about all possible activities in... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here on two separate occasions on our backpacking tour of Australia. The room we had was on the top level right off of the kitchen, the room itself was by far the nicest of any place we had stayed in during our backpacking experience. The room was very spacious with a comfortable bed with a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of days at the beginning of our Australia adventure, and a couple days at the end. I have nothing but nice things to say about our stay here. Cleanliness was very important to us, and this place was spotless. The rooms are very clean, and there are two kitchens which are... More

Stayed for 2 nights while away from home with work. I was looking for budget accommodation without the backpacker/party all night experience ..... Ellie's certainly fit the bill for this. Will definitely be returning.
