Located just few minutes driving distance from CBD this is most ideal if you want to spend your evening at CBD or Elizabeth Pier pubs and then want to get back to your hotel without the hassle of long drive. Especially it's reasonable price compared to rest of the hotels in the...

Budget accommodation only 5 minutes drive from the CBD in a quiet location on the banks of the Derwent River. The room was a good size, clean and well appointed and there is plenty of parking available. Free wifi is available in all rooms

Ok check in, ok room, ok shower room, clean. Easy to find, after passing the bridge from Orford. Quiet area in the suburbs. Microwave, fridge, good bed, what can you expect ? Good value, you have it. You won't spend your day there, so, it's ok.

Very disappointed room was so tiny couldn't even walk around the bed. Clean and tidy. Shower so tiny could hardly fit in it. Not enough parking on site. Bed hard and uncomfortable. No kitchenette as the pictures show. Only items in cupboard. Very disappointed. Ok for 1 night but no longer.

How do you stuff a queen bed, closet, bar fridge, desk, toaster and microwave into a 3m x 3m room? With very little room left over. Our room was quite cramped and right on the driveway going into the hotel so it was also quite noisy. Single paned windows. The walls, ceiling also not very soundproof so there was noise...

“We were in a room close to the upstairs exit, which was quite noisy when guests were coming and going.”
  • Small corner shower, good pressure and plenty of hot water. Great shower.
  • Queen bed with single. Small room, but all we needed. The room smelled fresh and clean.
  • Red stain on curtain, looked like jam. Curtains generally not very clean!
