Stayed here for one night on a trip from Brisbane to Sydney. Called in overnight to catch up with an old friend - booked through wotif.com... Regretted it the moment we opened the door.
Pros: - Was clean, and reasonably maintained. Nice hot shower! Receptionist was friendly enough. Location is great! Pity the owners don't capitalise on the location! Heaps of passing clientele for sure.
Cons: - Draught stoppers supplied to stop the cold coming in under the door?? Really?? It's 2012! Aircon was beyond loud - too loud to even use. Bed - absolute shocker... Was barely able to walk the next day! I swear I spent half the night counting the number of springs I could feel! LOL Room furnished with second hand 'at hotel auction' furniture.
Just felt it was over-priced for what it is... $50 a night is probably where they should be charging for what it is...
