We stayed overnight and found the room clean, the bed comfortable, the shower hot, and when booking I asked for a quiet room so we were allocated one away from the road. The check in was friendly and informative. It was very good value. And I especially appreciated the really milk!

We stayed overnight and can recommend this hotel. Quiet, clean and within walking distance to eating places. Comfortable bed and pillows and excellent wi-fi. Electric blankets if needed. Rooms are only small but well equipped. The fan in the bathroom was a little noisy though.

Stayed here on our way from Victoria to Queensland, Double premium room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and manager very helpful. Included in premium double was air con, electric blankets, kettle, toaster, and TV. Good value for money. Recommended.

Clean room with enough comfortable seats for watching/ reading/ eating.Refrigerator good size. Air con/ heater is new so we slept well. Also provide chamomile and peppermint tea. The only con is shower curtain is too short so shower will wet the floor.
