Dissappointed by the noise from the backpackers accomodation next door for the first two nights. Sadly we had to close the door and shut out the pleasant breeze to be able to sleep, amd even then it was noisey. When we asked to be relocated, we were relocated but on the same side of the building but two floors up,...

Great place to stay. Nice room. Great place to base yourself to explore townsvile. The bed was nice and big. But the TV was a bit small for the room and where it was. A bigger fridge would be good too.
