The double room feels quite old and not maintained very well, with marks on the walls, light shades missing, chipped soap holders etc. In saying that, the bed was really comfortable, the shower good and hot and the bar fridge cold. Most of the staff were really friendly and helpful. One...

Whilst not expecting a lot from a $14.95 "Full Buffet Breakfast" my two mates who accompanied me commented that cholera carts in Asia look more appetizing. The usual bacon, eggs, baked beans, spaghetti, toast and savory mince were all there, but there was a noticeable omission of fresh products, as everything looks to have come out of pre-packaged cans, boxes...

This room was half the price of the next best option ($70). Had two single beds, private bathroom and tea / coffee / tv / aircon. It had a tiny balcony and unfortunately the balcony door was impossible to secure. I'm not overly security conscious but I think the average person would be very disconcerted by pub accom that you...

Checked in they had no record of my booking. I showed them the confirmation on my phone even offered them the booking ref number, when I asked...

I ordered fish which was overcooked. My husband ordered chicken parmigiano and although it was a very generous serving it was only ordinary. The chips were awful. Wouldnt go...

Located in The Strand esplanade tourism precinct Hotel Allen is close to shops and restaurants. It is a sports oriented hotel with plenty of TV screens and gaming machines. I have stayed in the motel style rooms out the back several times. Accommodation is adequate (certainly not flash) and location and value excellent. On weekends tariff will often include extensive...

The bed was clean and the room didnt smell. There was stuff in the toilet bin when i got there and gum in the bottom of the shower. Ive stayed in better for that price, though nothing killed me and i didnt get infested with anything from the bed.
