Room size very good, clean and with all the amenities you require. Price of course cannot be beaten -good quality hotel for such a bargain this cannot be... More

This place was ok to stay in thought the price was a little high for what it was. It says it has just been updated, but for the money we thought is was a little small no couch as there was not enough room and also we had to pay for parking for the night, which we have never had... More

Dear Uniquelady01, Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. With regards to your comments about the cost of parking and late checkout. Certainly most hotels in the CBD do charge for parking and late checkout fees are a common industry practice. On your next stay if you contact me directly I am happy... More

Not a bad hotel, well located but just too many add ons bumping the price up (have to pay for mashing machine, dryer, parking, internet etc) ... and I don't care if the manager comes on here saying is all 'reasonable for local market etcetc' ... its still frustrating, breakfast was very poor quality but the pizza was amazing.

Close to the Westpac Stadium, Parliament and Government Department Buildings and the CBD A great location if you are attending an event at the Westpac Stadium. Clean and tidy rooms and friendly, helpful staff.Note that there is an additional fee for parking.

Good place to stay if only a few nights as you can hear people outside your room and our room was next to the stairs and you can hear people coming up and down. Other than that staff were very helpful and restaurant was very nice

Despite a wet weekend our two night stay was great - lovely warm room. New World supermarket at end of street along with a great fish and chip shop. Tea & Coffee facilities with small fridge - which was modern and quiet. Power outlet for the jug is below the tv screen (hanging on the wall) - so the steam... More

Very handy for the city, nice makeover of the public rooms but the rooms are tired. Short of power outputs, eg only two when I want my laptop, a jug and a light, and the mirror was miles from the basin to shave. TV not in a good position to watch from the bed, expensive internet and only instant coffee... More

Great location especially handy to the ferry. Small but very clean and comfortable room with a good array of coffee, tea and toiletries. Parking is extra unless you take advantage of free parking from 6pm to 8am.

Being close to Parliament was one of the reason we chose to stay here. About a seven minute walk meant it was a good choice. Check in was fast and friendly. We arrived early but this was not an issue. Our room was a reasonable size for my son and I. The bathroom was well laid out, again with enough... More

Dear Ian58_12, Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the majority of your stay. All rooms have opening windows that can reduce any stuffiness but I understand that having them open is not to everyone's liking. Please contact me directly on your next visit and I will upgrade you to a larger room. Kind Regards Jeff... More
