“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2008

I recently stayed here and thought the hotel was excellent value for money. The staff were extremely frienndly and helpful, the rooms a good size, clean and with good facilities. Also we were able to get into the CBD quickly and easily.

I am surprised to read the negative reviews on this site as I thought this place was extremely good value and in a fantastic location - you really will struggle to find anything comparible in the area.

First stayed in nov 03 and found the place clean/tidy etc with exceptionally friendly staff..manager drove me personally to where i needed to go after getting hopelessly lost..my motorcycle was put in a locked garage with camera security, hence the reason i stayed again in nov07..staff were once again exellent and on my return trip stayed again a week later and Charles and his wife Jane were back from a break, bike once again under lock and key..best security i had in a 12,000 kms trip from wa and back..I found the place once again clean/tidy and everything worked as it should...I,ve paid lots more for lots less all across Australia and its proximity to the city is great...They also provide lots of info for tourists verbally and with pamphlets etc,,highly recommended as far as i,m concerned...Russell Tatham, Mandurah.WA.

  • Liked — exceptionally friendly helpful staff
  • Disliked — poor hot water pressure, but understandable to conserve water usage.

Have to agree with the other review I'm afraid. First room I was given the door didn't stay shut properly! Thankfully they 'upgraded' me to a better room - right opposite the shared bathroom. People were pleasant enough but I don't think it's worth the price I'm sorry.

An over priced doss house. If you want a budget motel you can do much better. Motel info did NOT say shared bathrooms, run down and shabby appearance, dirty showers, noisy plumbing, noisy street, noisy neighbours ( BP Service Station). We generally stay 3 star and could have accepted all this if it had been budget priced.
