Clean and comfortable

Clean and comfortable. Although the hotel is dated and needs modernizing it is still good value for money, it is very close to St Kildas Beach and the staff are friendly.

Friendly staff with adequate cheap accommodation

Pros: Close to beach, friendly staff, great to pop over to the bar and watch the test match.
Cons: As stated above
I enjoyed my stay at this Hotel. I stayed two nights and have a few grizzles: no one made up my room after night one. Maybe they have Sundays off, or maybe it was an oversight. Also some dishwashing stuff would be handy seems they provide dishes? knives & forks etc. And it was annoying that people kept parking in my carpark that was conveniently right in front of my room.
