“Budget hotel, but fitted the bill perfectly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

All I wanted was a bed for the night. It was a cheap room, perfectly clean, great service, no frills but cheap.

Reception was friendly, prompt check in, and arranged a good and reasonably priced shuttle for me, would definitely return.

NB: Would be a tight fit for a couple with several bags each. Also suggest travelers take small change to use in vending machines in foyer, as there are NO Tea & Coffee facilities in the rooms, but coin operated vending machines are in the foyer

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Rooms are TINY, no fridge to keep the bubbly cold, and a family trying to sleep in these pill boxes is near on impossible, since the mattresses have some plastic coating on them, which amplifies the sound of every twist, turn, and rollover of each person in the room....needless to say, not a lot of sleep, and not the way to start an overseas holiday. We will not stay here again.

The hotel was everything we expected it to be. For the price we paid it was just enough for the 1 night we needed. Just a general room, bunk bed, TV, air con and a bathroom but for a short stay is great. Very clean, comfortable and the lady at the reception desk was very nice. Free parking which is a bonus aswell. For being on the side of a highway you barely hear anything!!

Since our last stay the management appears to have changed, for the better, and, it has been refurbished. Some small differences which make a big difference are bedside shelves & extra hanging space plus mirror.
Unlike European FI these are en suite rooms, however, not in line with Australia is no kettle in the room. However, there is a kettle in the reception area along with microwave & frozen meals, cottage pie was OK.
At $90 per night who can complain, it is $135 in Perth in a lousy location !
We always use this F1 when flying out of BNE, less stress.

Room Tip: If you have luggage ask for a ground floor, they are still working on the upper floor & there ar...
