Very good 8.0
A fine stay.
A fine stay. I was travelling for business so only in and out. A budget hotel but clean and had everything I needed. Close to Coles, shops and walking distance to a really nice nearby hotel. for a drink and food.

Ticked all the boxes.
Service was courteous and well attended to. It doesn't pretend to be 4 star but it is obviously a well tended property and provided a comfortable overnight stop. Particularly satisfied that we weren't feeling crowded with three adults.

Good 6.0
Meh only as a last resort
Room wasn’t made up and we were well past check in time. Reception smelt like cigarette smoke. Offered another room, which again wasn’t made up. No compensation, blamed the house keeping. Funky room smell. Had to ask for fresh towels.
