Clean but not for people who have a vehicle.
Clean place, cramped feeling. Parking is very small and limited plus $20 extra. Parking structure is hard to find, download directions before you go. My designated parking spot was taken, so i had to go out of my way to move my vehicle after manys hours drive , i had requested compensation, but was refused by manager.

Exceptional 10.0
At the check out, the receptionist (male) had absolutely no idea as to the enquiry the person who arrived to pick up the guests was asking, in the end, it was the security guard who met the needs of the enquirer and guests!!

mix up but turned into bonus
actually never ended up staying here went to check in and they had no booking for us yet could see it was paid? They were very helpful and booked us across the road to the Liberty Apartments an up grade at no extra cost to us. This apartment was lovely nice and clean lots of room and still very close to everything. Receptionist at Liberty was also helpful in printing off stuff we needed for next part of our trip

Very Good 8.0
Pleasant enough
I was there for 1 night on New Year’s Eve. The room was small but functional BUT it was an inside room and there was no natural lighting. The instructions to access the hotel were ok but the back access door where Uber drops you off was locked and I had to go in via the front door. All good for me as a local to the city and could give directions to the other guests trying to find the front entrance! But not really good enough when the instructions told us to access the hotel by that door! I wouldn’t have wanted to stay there longer. It was pleasant enough for a one night stay.

Great value for money and great location
Rooms have everything you need. If you require a room with a window it is wise to request one. This is not a hotel to lounge around in and stare at the view. It can get a bit of street noise late at night. Very well located, close to the centre of town, close to food and pubs. Would recommend for couples who wish to cook for themselves. We would stay again.
Andrew, au8 night trip
Fair 4.0
Cheap quality, but not price.
No window in the room. I felt trapped. No central air conditioning, instead you will have a stand along air conditioner inside the room with duct going on a wall. The air conditioner is so noisy, that you cannot really sleep when it is on. Catering is located on hotel premises, you need to go elsewhere. Did not feel like it is worth the money. The only good thing I can think about this hotel is location.

Good for short stay
It was fine. The guys helped me out with the parking. It’s a little complicated with keys and functions. A little difficult to find but once you get it straight it works.
