On arrival, from outside there was a run-down feel about the place.However location was good, with eateries convenient and there was easy access to the city.
Central air conditioning was hardly 'climate controlled' as stated on the website and was switched on and off by the owners. Normally probably sufficient, but was inadeqate in the very hot weather at the time and quite noisy, especially as it was on all night.
The en-suite was built into a corner of the bedroom and was only suitable for one person at a time. The basin was so small and tight, it was difficult to lean over it.
The bed was a comfortable king, not queen as stated (and pictured) on the website. This is not a criticism, mentioned only to reflect another website inaccuracy.
There was no guests' lounge or pool as stated on website and nowhere to relax in comfort outside the bedroom in the hot weather.
Towels were not renewed daily, one small round of soap for 3 days was provided for two people and no hand towels. Some toiletries had obviously been used by previous guests and not replaced.
Breakfast was adequate, but far from 'first class' as described on website.
There was no off street parking as stated on website and with Hyde Park opposite, getting a spot was a bit hit and miss.
Good wi-fi internet and a desktop computer available was convenient.
Excellent large flat screen TV in the bedroom.
Cleanliness - dust on bedside lamps and very obvious under furniture was not good.
Steve and Hoon were friendly and helpful enough hosts.
Overall, this B & B seemed 'tired' and was not good value for money, compared with hundreds of other B & Bs we've stayed at and especially the 6 others we stayed at in Western Austraila on this trip. We go by website details to help us choose our B & Bs and accuracy is expected.
