My wife and I stayed here for a night. We chose this hotel due to its proximity to the city center and the ferry. We got a pretty large room, well-kept and clean. The bathroom was tiny. Storage space in the room was limited. A major downside is that the room didn't have heating. This is a problem if you...

It's a good option if you're staying only for a night. Gets noisy in the night because of the front street. Breakfast is served at a common table outside and then not looked upon even if it needs refill. Parking option is a great relief. All in all a decent place at a decent price.

The WIFI would lose connection frequently and the sky TV did not work at all. Luckily we were out of the room for the most part of our stay. The on site parking was convenient and the fruit in the hallway the next morning was nice.

After a long day of traveling this place was perfect for us to stay overnight..... once rest of family arrived. Great atmosphere in bar and dining areas. The food was fantastic which also had good selection for those who are Gluten Free. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The unit I stayed in had a large spa bath, quality carpet in the room (although it may not win any awards for design), and super clean, crisp linen on the bed. This is not a fancy place but for the money it was good value. Quick trip into the city makes the location good. Easy free parking was great....

The bathroom we had was very small with a shower and toilet where you were hardly able to close the sliding door. The bedroom was a good size but could have done with additional cleaning i.e dusty light fitting etc. However it was in a nice area close to the botanic garden and the cable car and had a good...

As the title, the wifi signal no good, and eventually even not showing up on the wifi list couldnt log in. The room just okay. But the tv is old style like a box not flat screen and it's small. The shower room is old too. Anyway, just okay. Wish the wifi works better.

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, a little disappointed really. The room was grubby thick dust on most things and ants crawling all over the place. Advertised guest parking, however only parking is in the pub car park and first come first serve. Staff are very friendly though.

For the price ($70 for a single room), very good, relaxed hotel. Free parking behind and WiFi. The WiFi is sometimes hit and miss in the rooms, but generally pretty good. The price includes a breakfast but slightly disappointed that this consisted of a bowl of museli and tinned peaches. Rooms are clean and comfy. Kettle, tea bags etc. Shared...

We stayed in this hotel in Mid January and we enjoyed our three night stay. We were in room 4 which overlooked the street, which at times was very busy but it did calm down at night so a good nights sleep was possible. There wasn't any noise from the customers down in the bar or once the hotel closed...
