We booked a family room for Northcote through laterooms at the last minute and, after reading the reviews on here, I wasn't expecting much; how wrong could I have been. My Wife, Son and I were greeted by a lovely lady who couldn't have been more helpful. She was brilliant with my 4 year old boy and showed us up two our room which was absolutely lovely. The decor was great and the lady explained that if we needed anything then just to shout. She also said she would change the sofa into a bed for my son whilst we were out.
I don't know if these are different owners or whether the owners have made changes from the reviews they got on here but the Northcote was defintely a different place to what had been described. A short walk from all the attractions of the North Bay made it an ideal place to stay whilst keeping our son occupied and we would certainly recommend it.
There were one or two things that made me give the Northcote 4 rather than 5 as a rating 1. The towels provided were far far too small to get dried on and should be replaced with bigger ones and 2. The shower was a little tricky to get right and was only warm enough to go in at a very low pressure. Lastly the curtains could have been a bit heavier in order to keep some of the light out early in the morning. Apart from these things the Northcote was great.
