The Best Western Bakery Hill is clean and comfortable with free parking and limited wifi so it is ok for the rates that they charge, but the rooms could do with a renovation to brighten them up a little. That said the rooms have everything you could need including a stocked mini bar at reasonable prices. And it is only... More

You get what you pay for I guess. Cheap accommodation. Room was dated, but a good size. In a good position. Close to shops and eateries, but being on a main corner, the traffic noise is a problem. Parking is also awkward and congested. Wouldn't stay there again.

Surely this would not take a lot of time/money to fix. We chose Best Western because of our recent stay in 1 of... More

We had a 3 night stay here. I am okay with hotels being older and perhaps a little tired, but I can do without the mould in the shower recess. There were indications that changes maybe being made, i.e new taps in the bathroom, but this was overlooked due to the rusted 'disability' rails, broken and unclean grout / tiles,... More

This is a great place to stay in the centre of town. Family friendly, walked into reception to hear piano practice in the background, felt like walking into a home rather than motel reception. Motel is at the top of bakery hill, across the road from a variety of eateries and short stroll to supermarkets. Room was spacious and comfortable.... More

As far as hotel rooms go it was pretty average & seemed a bit cold and dated with the internal exposed brick. The toilet was in a very small space and felt uncomfortable. Shower was hot with good pressure. The highlight was the king size bed with comfy pillows. Checkin was seemless and service good but it was lacking atmosphere.... More

Ice cube trays were filled and freezer a good size for a medium stay. Shower had a handy grabrail - good. Onsite laundry facilities and parking right outside the... More

We had a family room, no complaints around $140. The bathroom was really nice, beds comfy and linen clean. We checked in ar 2130. That was no problems. The room had a microwave and some basic crockery and cutlery.

Starting with the good points: central location, easy to find, free wifi, comfy bed with clean linens. That's it, parking on site is awful, bathrooms and cleanliness are abysmal. Hair balls in amoungst "clean" towels. Grouting amateur job & mouldy. Streaks of a dubious nature on the walls in the bathroom. Toilet dirty/used & not cleaned on our arrival. Sinks... More
