Lovely and friendly owners always keen to help ya and crack some jokes. The room was very modern as apposed to what every one is saying, nice beds,... More

I would agree some of the rooms are dated but the furnishings were new and stylish (bedding etc) Had no issues with cleaning either, clean rooms and no bad smells. Well stocked kitchenette although we didn't use but full size cooker, fridge, etc. Friendly welcome and good central location. Easy to walk to bars and restaurants. There is a launderette... More

We definitely would not stay here again felt it was overpriced for a very basic and dated room. Advise if travelling with a dog make sure you check the price before handing over your credit card details they charge an extra $30.00 for cleaning.

Needing a place to stay nearby, we booked into the Tudor Lodge, a fifteen minute walk away from the hospital. The Tudor lodge is very reasonably priced and whilst it may nor be five star, it is very comfortable... More
