“Good value”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

The past six years we stay regularly at this hotel. The staff are friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable. The rooms we have stayed in could do with an update, but overall good value, good parking spots and in a good location. The restaurant has great wings!

The hotel has a good location, around 30min by walk away from downtown (and it is a easy and nice walk) I did not try the bar, grill or pool.
The staff is very friendly and try to help you in any case. It is quite so you can sleep well during the night. Wifi is working perfect and fast. Parking spaces are enough there and they are very fast to clean your room.
The room himself was clean and big enough, you have a fridge and a microwell, also a loud air con which you usually dont need. No breakfast included but the staff is friendly to show you cafes around the area (Starbucks is not far away)
Would come again!

Very nice hotel. Friendly frontdesk, willing to help with anything! Rooms were clean. Good airconditioned room's. Just across the street is the bus, which goes to the middle of the centre. The pub next to the hotel is not that nice.

We stayed here on our weekend away to Victoria, which was our first time travelling with our baby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was your basic hotel room, but it had everything we needed. It was very quiet (3rd floor, facing the parking lot), but a little too warm. We kept the fan/air-conditioning on pretty much the whole time just to keep it less muggy in there. Good location as well, being close to downtown, but far enough out to avoid the noise and crowds. Overall, a great place to stay.

The hotel is quiet (inside and ouside). Not too close to downtown though (10 min ride).
My room was clean and quite comfortable.
Too bad the pool was closed for annual maintenance during all my stay.

No breakfast included but Tim H is just 300 m away !

This is an average older hotel. Staff are friendly. The furniture and fixtures in the room are older.

If you are easily offended by a few scuff marks or lose wall paper in a few areas then stay somewhere else.

If you are looking for a comfortable bed at a reasonable price this is not bad. Given the price it is good value.

I've spent 2 nights at this hotel, and let me tell you, the hotel staffs here are pretty cool! They are kinda funny, especially the manager! Excellent service overall. Hmm, I had a pretty big breakfast here. There is an indoor swimming pool here and that was totally unexpected. If you don't mind staying in an aged hotel, then its all good. Will visit again, especially just for the great hotel service!
