The hotel is located just behind Lygon street which means that all your culinary needs are just a short stroll away. It is also a short cab ride into the city ($10-15 AUD, depending on traffic conditions of course) so it is a viable solution for a cheaper city alternative.
The rooms are pretty small, however, they are clean and have all the amenities required for a comfortable stay.
The service was great. Couldn't figure out how to get the heater working and a staff member was up in no time to have a look at it and got it working.
There is free on site parking, but beware that this is on first come first served basis. There is also a car park next door for $15 per day and also on street parking as signed (most of the ones I saw were 1/2 or 1 hour).
The breakfast was simple and there was not much for choice, considering it was only $10 per adult you can't really expect a 5 star spread anyway. My word of advice would be to utilise the area and take a walk down to a local cafe. This way you won't need to wake up early to make it in time for breakfast (finished at 9:30am on the Sunday morning) and you will get a wider variety and most likely much better quality.
All up it was a good value hotel, and I would stay there again if I was looking for a budget alternative in the city area.
