We (retired couple) needed a basic o/nighter and decided to try Rollo Street based on positive feedback here. We agree: House is airy fresh and clean. Our lower level twin room was quite narrow but well ventilated . Plenty cupboard space. Hubby is a big fellow and missed his deep mattress but we both slept well. Fairly steep steps lead upstairs – we used the bannister ‘spokes’ for grips as both of us have dickey feet. Modern, light airy kitchen upstairs; well organised and stocked with practical Ikea crockery (nothing chipped). Drawer full of clean tea towels. I appreciated condiments from the general-use cupboard. We had tea on the large patio and breakfast inside. Range of books in small sitting area. Light placement in bedroom not good for serious night reading as one might expect: best to take a non-intrusive personal reading light. Still a bit chilly at night so did not bother with the pool which at rear of property. Downstairs bathroom /laundry arrangement typical of older ‘Queenslander’. Water hot. Decent thick towels. Place looked well maintained and well managed, with the usual 'No Smoking Inside' policy, so one felt comfortable regarding safety. Noticed cycles and helmets downstairs. Street parking for car.
