Fabulous 8.8 From 44 reviews

Very good 8.0
Modern Boutique hotel/hostel with great facilities
Modern boutique hotel/hostel and very good value for money. The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms good, separate for men and women with good showers, full length-mirror, hairdryer and straighteners. One problem was that the showers sometimes flooded the bathroom floor because the cleaners didn’t regularly unblock the drainage area. The place is modern and clean and has a lot of places to relax from the window seat by reception to the lounge, big arm chairs in the hallways and the balcony upstairs which looks out onto the beautiful park. The kitchen is in the basement so a bit gloomy, although the facilities are good and they provide a free breakfast. The main complaint here is that the seats are fixed to the floor and backless so you can’t move them into a comfortable position in relation to the table for your height in which I found very annoying!! But all in all I think you get more than your money’s worth here.

Curates Egg - Doesn't satisfy business traveller
Beautiful comfy king-size bed. Nice and warm (pre-heated) on a cold night. En-suite was quite spartan. No hanging space and small cupboards. No desk or anywhere really to work except on lap. Obviously didn't finish clean out of room, as mini-fridge had several have consumed drink and food items, but no milk to have coffee in room, and shower recess was still decorated with several long clumps of hair from previous occupant/s. Had bar/restaurant on site, but when I went in search of some desert told they didn't have any. I realise its a Backpackers and Lodge, but often ensuite room at the price paid have more to offer in attention to detail.

Room was comfy and clean albeit small. At 6am guests were talking loudly in front of entrance which woke us up. Great location close to town center and park.

Good but very loud garden area
It was quite noisy out in the garden and didn’t close until 10.30pm which is very late when you have a 5am wake up! Otherwise it was a lovely spot

Lovely place to stay!
Possibly the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in, and a great location! Really nice facilities with mostly friendly staff. The only thing is there's not as much of a community / backpacker vibe as with other hostels. People aren't hanging around in the common room much, for instance (it's a really nice area but not that cozy or homey). If you're looking for a clean, quiet stay though, this is a really great choice!

Highly recommend.
Excellent standard of accommodation in most pleasant surroundings. All rooms tastefully furnished. High standard of housekeeping. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location right in town with easy street parking close by. Stayed 4 nights in an ensuite room and would definitely return.
