“Very nice Hotel, better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Stopped in this Hotel with Retrak, when I went out there for a week. The food was of a decent standard, the Hotel rooms were very clean. It was a lot better than I expected. The staff were very nice, service was slow but cannot complain at all. I very much enjoyed my stay at this Hotel and would recommend it to any one.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very reasonable prices ($45 for single) and the rooms are very spacious and clean. Not the easiest place to find as it is out of the CBD but worth hunting for, Solomon the manager will ensure that your stay is as hassle free as possible. Free WiFi which is very useful and secure parking.
The only negative point was the restaurant, poor standard of food and constant shortages (no coffee during breakfast????), no eggs, no bread. However, I believe that the head chef is being changed (end of Nov 2012) so it should improve.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but dont expect a balcony
