We picked this hotel/apartment because it offers a kitchenette with a stove, oven, and fridge. If you don't like to wash dishes, there's also a dishwasher. There is even a washer and dryer (all in one) so you can do a small load of laundry. There are spoons, forks, butter knives, plates, glasses, and bowls. There is even a small... More

We were late for dinner cruise and asked Hotel Clerk if we could store our baggage. She went and asked the manager and she agreed. We put our bags behind the counter. As we were trying to get a room the manager came back and in a rude tone said "what can I help you with" (like she did not... More

This place is still boasting about its TripAdvisor award from 2014. Unfortunately it looks as though they have not cleaned or done maintenance since 2014! The shower was mouldy, bathroom dirty, the drawers in the kitchen were falling apart and there were broken tiles on the floor just sitting loose. There was a dirty/used face cloth on the vanity when... More

As far as first impressions go this place couldn't have gotten off to a worse start. Checked in at 2:30pm. Was informed that my car park pass that I was paying $25 a night for wasn't available because the previous person hadn't returned it yet. Had to then pay for parking at a nearby car par while we waited they... More

I booked with trepidation after some of the reviews, however at the time it was the best value. Firstly the not so good - The reception is, as other reviews state, a desk in someone's room, which as a single female felt uncomfortable. My room was on the top floor and the lift only goes to the floor below so... More

Dirty, hard beds, very worn and dated. The reception is located in one of the rooms on the second floor and appeared to be where the onsite manager lived. While I didn't expect a 5 star hotel it wasn't exactly a cheap place to stay and I haven't stayed in a place this bad ever (including back packers accommodation).
