I stayed here 2 nights and given the price (cheaper) in comparison to other motels I was pleasantly surprised with the room as it was nicer than I had expected. I was looking for somewhere near the State Netball & Hockey Centre and this was as convenient as I could imagine. I requested Internet access and was put in a room which had this, not all rooms do so you need to ensure you ask for this if you need it. Continental breakfast was included in the price of the room which was basic but convenient as well. A nice no frills budget priced place to stay which suited me perfectly. There was a lot of noise in the early Sat morning due to tram works on Royal Parade but this is not the inn's fault and the second night was quiet and I very near the front of the inn. I will stay here again if attending another event at the SNHC. Parking right outside your door is a plus. Reception were very helpful when asking questions about the local area.
