Property conditions & facilities




2/10 Poor

Room with a bed.
We are a family of 4 and there was no fan or aircon in the room. Floors did not appear to have been properly vacuumed. Suspect the room is not used very often. Bunk beds flopped from side to side. Staff took us to the room via the smoking area, rear loading dock and fire escape. We didnt see if fit for a family to stay in, so left and found other accommodation.

2/10 Poor

Dirty tissues behind "box/bedside table", room tiny, 2 multi power boards, instead of power points. Bathroom badly designed. 1 metal chair in room - no room for this really or anymore. Staff unhelpful. Told need to book for the dining room, but when arrived for the booked time, advised that kitchen/dining room not working so best to go elsewhere. No assistance as to where we could go. Upon our return, dining room with large groups of guests enjoying dinner!

6/10 Good

Basic and comfortable
Room was small and basic but comfortable enough after driving from Hobart. No hairdryer in the room. Good meals available for dinner downstairs. Included continental breakfast was basic but sufficient. Easy to check in and check out. Plenty of street parking available.
