Nobody at reception when we checked in 5pm - no bell to ring or sign to inform you of what to do, waited over 10min before somebody turned up. On website they advertise compliment parking - but then want to charge you $20 for a car park? We ended up parking in a secure car park behind the hotel for the night and we only had to pay $15. Room was nice and spacious. If you want peace and quiet for the night don’t stay here as it is on the Main Street and local bars/clubs busy/noisy late into the night-this however didn’t bother us. Probably won’t stay again as their rates are quite high for what you get.

Like = right in city (location). Beds comfortable. Not like = had to pay for parking but car (ute) couldnt fit in any of the parking anyway. Ive stayed there a few times and this is the 1st time had to pay for parking. Curtain ripped. Paint coming off walls. Ornament thing was chipped and had tape covering it/holding it together. Other people staying were very loud, coming in making heaps of noise early in the morning and then playing music in their room which we could clearly (& loudly) hear.
