The hotel is well located but looking tired and overdue for a makeover. The room was clean and comfortable. A big fault is the lift is shut down (for a rest?) every night from 11 until 5.30am. Staff seemed friendly and helpful.

Well placed on South Terrace and a short walk to tram stop on King William or cafes/restaurants on Hutt St. I also understand the hotel restaurant itself has won numerous awards although we did not try it. The hotel facilities themselves suffice for an overnight or very short stay although don't expect to be wowed! The rooms are clean but...

Reading the advert as renovated studio apartment and not having stayed for a considerable amt of years because of dis-satisfaction I thought I'd give it another go. Really, it's worse than ever and completely falsely advertised. Rhubarb Chiffley

Hi SunbusterSteve Thanks for your comments, sorry we have not met expectations. Your comment regarding falsely advertising is concerning and on reflection our Studio's in particular were completed in approximately Aug/Sept of 2014. We are therefore undertaking a review of our room and property descriptions for more accuracy. On a happier note, we are also looking at our public areas...

Great hotel for the price. Good location, comfy bed, carpark easy to access, lifts don't work after 11 (assume cos they're too noisey) not a problem though. Great view over parklands. Bathroom dated but fine. All relevant to the price considering the great location

Reasonable hotel for a budget, very creaky doors and stairs. You can't use the elevator at night, and with the door and stairs creaking, it's hard to move around without causing some disturbance. Balconies are shared between rooms as they run the length of the building, due to the age of the building, you can't smoke on the balcony and...

I needed a hotel that would not break the budget. This was my choice. The staff were friendly on arrival and there is parking available. I had a room in the 4th floor. The ride in the lift was an adventure, badly needs fixing, I used the stairs for the rest of my stay, until I left and had another...
