Very friendly staff made sure we felt welcome, neat outside area and well presented and very reasonable rates will definitely recommend this to friends. Good location close to restaurants and city center.

Stayed three nights with two young children in the Luxury Apartment and could not have been happier. The hospitality was outstanding - the young girl at reception could not have been more helpful or welcoming. Beds, food, spa, heating, wifi - all perfect for a cosy winter stay. Thank you!

Bed was reasonably "ok" and there were lots of nice pillows. The bathroom was spacious and modern. My room had two beds in it but my colleagues room had a comfy sofa in it instead... More

Beautiful updated rooms that are furnished very tastefully , The rooms are Comfortable and spotless. The bathroom had a walk in shower and the owner supplied fresh milk which is a bonus as I do detest the long life milk in my cup of tea.

From the moment of checkin, to showing us to our room, how everything worked,including the Nespresso machine (rarely found in motels in Australia) and the spa bath. The bed was comfortable and we heard no noise from... More

The room was very quite as it faces a side road. The receptionist showed us to our room and explained everything which is very rare in travel these days. She also provided us with a... More
