Our room was clean but very small.The web photos are misleading and show the rooms in a better light than they actually are. There was no hair dryer or ironing board. The staff were friendly and helpful. Flinders Street is part of the Princess Highway, so a little noisy at times. The motel was full and as there was no...

Stayed there during the university games and it was full, the room was very plain but clean, despite the occupancy level it was quiet and the staff at reception were very nice and helpful, Free wifi, and discount at Thai restaurant was an added bonus

Of course the room wasn't exquisite but that's to be expected of a budget option. The room my partner and I stayed in was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The owners were both lovely and extremely helpful. Amazing value for money! :)
