Hi, According to the law and regulations in Australia, smoking is strictly prohibited in most of the public places. Smoking is not allowed at the balcony. Heavy fines apply for violating these rules.

Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
