We've stayed here twice in the last couple of months and the accommodation is very good value for an inner city location. It's also possible to park free on the street overnight although during the day it it limited to 2 hours. On our second visit we booked a studio unit which came with a simple kitchenette, microwave and crockery....

We had a quiet room, directors suite, which had a kitchenette and small bath tub. This room had everything we needed to get through a tough few days with baby's molars. Staff were very helpful when we needed baby Panadol at a late hour. Recommended for parents with babies.

Great friendly and helpful staff, lovely people. Really comfy bed and nice...

As we are unable to carry suitcases up a staircase we asked for assistance. However, there was no one available as the receptionist was on her own and also...
