Convenient no frills hotel
Nice little place, reasonably priced. No special frills, but definitely not "cheap looking"

Will definately come back again.
Right from the front desk, very kind owners and very respectful. The room, kitchen and showers were spotless. Lovely neighborhood. Close to the town centre at very affordable price. This is a review from someone who has been to more than 100 hotels and hostels in NZ, USA, Australia and so many other countries, I never rated other hotels as this one because I was really surpised with everything. Keep it up always like this. Many thanks for your awesome service.

Small in size, but big on service
The room I booked, a single, was not available, due to a mix up with availability via THIS website, so the room I got, was a small 4 bunk bed room with an aisle between, the width of the doorway. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable enough but the room was hot with only a very small window for ventilation. The hosts were excellent, the kitchen facilities that i saw were very clean and tidy.Overall a great little place in the centre of town. I would not stay there again though, unless I booked it directly with Astray myself. HOTELS.COM you let me down, and Astray did the best they could to accommodate me.
