    We were very happy with the room. It was very comfortable, everything was really clean, and the little extra touches were wonderful. A really great location, well off the highway meant no traffic noises. We will be back.

    The room was spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful with our questions regarding the area. Location was quiet but still close to everything - the Hospital is across the road and the CBD is only a few kilometres away.
