My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at George Powlett in mid-February 2009. I hadn't read all the negative reviews before we booked. Given our stay was completely trouble-free, I feel like I should defend GP. Our apartment was clean, came with all the appliances etc you'd expect from a 3 star hotel room (since when do DVD players or VHS come as standard?), and we were given fresh towels every 2nd night during the week (and then every night on the weekend). GP is in a great location (10 mins walk to the CBD, train & tram closer). You can also catch the free Skybus hotel shuttle there from the Skybus city terminal. It was cheaper for us than a double room in one of the budget hotels with a shared bathroom. I would definitely stay there again.
