One of the best hotels/hostels we have stayed at on our journey! Toilets/showers cleaned to a very high standard! Ultra helpful & friendly staff! Cosy beds and all at a very good rate! Great bar with great food just downstairs...and only minutes walk away from the cbd :) Would highly recommend! A+

Old style pub with musty carpeted floors but was comfortable to watch the game and have a few drinks. We did get a large bar platter but I would not recommend again (too much batter on deep... More

Great place! Near everything you want, shops, waterfront, museum etc. Really clean and super helpful and friendly staff, and a great price compared to other places in the city. Wanted to stay longer but they are all booked up! Would definitely come back.

Staff are awesome and always smilie. :-) Very homely feeling - not a toffee nosed expensive place, just nice and comfortable. The locals were pretty chatty and... More

The motel is located in a suitable places for everyone with close shops, transport and friendly people, this giving it a suitable area for everyone staying here. The motel also provides rooms with beautiful views, and it's close to the stadium we are having our game which is good for us.
