The hotel rooms are quite big and its located in a great part of town with easy walking to restaurants and supermarkets. The hotel manager Kevin was incredibly friendly and went out of his way to ensure i had a pleasant stay.

Good sized room, could have been cleaner. We had room at front of property, very noisy. Good location walking distance to mall, walking distance to Leagues Club. Had to ask for more milk as only had 4 small UHT milks in fridge, had 1 coffee each when checked in, 1 coffee each after dinner, not enough milk for morning coffee.

Title makes this place sound bad. Actually it was really quite OK. The bathroom was brand new but the shower had mould around the base, and the floor was quite "sticky" even though cleaners had just left. Room was a bit dated, but was really quite livable. Family room was up a flight of stairs. Bed was very comfy as...

As per other reviews... good bed, room etc. I had no problem parking my large 4wd. Free wifi was an added bonus. BUT the bathroom was very outdated and very mouldy! Was a let down for an otherwise great room. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Good value for money and very central. Would stay again (but bring my flip...

Great main room plenty of room to spread out . ... bathroom very dated and not very clean. We were in room 6 and our shower was very moldy. Exhaust fan not working. Powder room did not have a hand towel rail so washing your hands and having to go back into the bathroom to wipe hands. Easy access to...

Stayed a night on my way between Melbourne and Adelaide. I was tired and the sun in the late afternoon was making driving difficult. Time to stop and get off the road for a bit.

The Best Western Bakery Hill is clean and comfortable with free parking and limited wifi so it is ok for the rates that they charge, but the rooms could do with a renovation to brighten them up a little. That said the rooms have everything you could need including a stocked mini bar at reasonable prices. And it is only...

You get what you pay for I guess. Cheap accommodation. Room was dated, but a good size. In a good position. Close to shops and eateries, but being on a main corner, the traffic noise is a problem. Parking is also awkward and congested. Wouldn't stay there again.

It was a good location, bed was fine. Decor outdated but heater, tv worked etc. I was pining for a hot shower, but was apalled to find mould in the shower recess!!! So gave it a miss. Surely this would not take a lot of time/money to fix. We chose Best Western because of our recent stay in 1 of...
