Will come again. Very nice room, fast wifi and friendly staff. Convenient location as well. Price wise it was very affordable and worths every cent. Restaurants and shops nearby makes it a good location to rest and spend a night.

All good location, rooms clean and tidy, and comfy bed. Bathroom great with the twin handbasin, very handy when both trying to get ready the same time. Staff very helpful. Keep the reviews short and sweet and more people will make an effort to write a review.

After a long drive, it was nice to have an easy check in and to soon find myself in a spacious and well cared for room. The modern bathroom with double sink and massive shower was excellent.

Couldn't fault the facilities - very modern - so handy for Sovereign Hill Heritage Park - just across the road and only A$7 taxi to town. Receptionist was extremely helpful and had taxis organised in minutes. There was a # 21 Council bus 1/2 hourly to town outside
