Reviewed 28 January 2014

For the price of the hotel it is not worth it. I got stuck with an online booking and was not able to cancel or modify the dates of the booking.
I would recommend spending a little more on a much nicer hotel closer to the CBD.
Room very old, street noise is awful for light sleepers.
Bathroom old fashioned needs renovating.
I will not be back!

Wouldnt waste your money had a terrible stay and the Allan and his team have offered no customer service at all in regards to the matter. I mean who would have thought that if you book a spa room and pay for a spa you you expect a spa that actually works.... If I could rate this any lower I would

Bad hotel. Our room was infested with bugs and the manager solution was to spray it with raid and vacuum the bugs. We had to leave as we couldn't deal with the bugs are the smell of raid, they charged us for the night as well saying they solved the bug problem. Unprofessional staff.

This is OK for the price ($145) and is in a good location, close to the Clarendon Street bars and restaurants and a short tram ride to the city/Southbank. Room was clean and tidy, bathroom was adequate, with excellent shower that almost washed you down the drain! All in all, a good budget location; needs a bit of refurbishing, but that's about all. Very quiet considering it's located on a major road (Kingsway). Note also - free, secure undercover parking.

We were there on business, room was clean and fresh, guy at reception was pleasant, good shower, good air con, good size TV, the bed was as hard as you could possible make a bed, great if you like hard beds of course but not for me, hardly slept a wink, my work mate in the next room is 20 years younger than me and he was even winging about his hard bed, would love to make the owners sleep on the damn thing. There was a great little pub about 100 metres from the hotel and a Chinese restaurant next to it. There are 2 coffee shops about 200 metres from the hotel for your morning fix. We were there for work, not play so we didn't want to stay in a fancy hotel it suited our trip perfectly, except for that slabs of granite they are passing off for beds.

Yep! It's pretty tired but the rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

If you're planning on spending time in your hotel room then this is not for you. If all you want is a bed at the end of a busy day/ night then it's hard to beat value for money.

BEWARE there is NO restaurant,bar,playground,secure parking in minimal, spacing is ridiculous and "smoking area" is a chair next to hotel rubbish bin under tripping water. The rooms are clean but stuffy, staff are friendly, lift is a bit dodgy windows don't open.
