Stayed two nights. The staff were fantastic the little touch of calling someone by the last name is an old touch of class. The room was ok and had a refurb a few years ok. No seat for sitting outside. The room was comfy. Would stay again and is at a good price.

The staff at the front desk, Paul, was excellent. Very helpful, very fast, able to multi-task, polite, smart chap. He's very clear, explaining how to work the key to the door and so on. Very good. His colleague, a guy from China, the next day, was also alert. Even though I didn't speak to him/deal with him at all, except... More

Stayed here when seeing a concert in Southbank which was only a 20 minute pleasant walk away. Hotel was clean and facilities were fine. Appreciated the under cover secure car park at the hotel. I would definitely come back and would recommend this hotel to others.

Great location for free ferry to city centre & extremely friendly staff, but the room was terrible very run-down and dated, bathroom was not clean. The pool was not pleasant, and there were people living there!! I know it is budget accommodation, but not good at all.

This hotel has a lot of plusses going for it: free wifi, secure parking, a swimming pool in a private courtyard setting and with it being in a good location at Kangaroo Point just off the main road, this means good transport links into the city too. A few niggles meant that it lost a star or so along the... More

A short distance from the city was just what we wanted, this was perfect. Comfy, spacious and quiet, what more could we ask for. Onsite parking easy and plentiful, as well as being secure overnight.
