The room I stayed in was a superior studio which was very nice with plenty of room and very little street noise. It is very close to the centre of the city an to bus stops which is good for those who wish to explore.

Just stayed overnight but would stay here again. Close to town. Great kitchen with everything you need. A bit of road noise but nothing that bad. Good heating for we northern Australians too. Free wifi was a hit with the teenager.
