    After a few days of our 18hr stay (we arrived at 2pm, left about 4am next morning), we were charged $30 for a 'missing pillow' we never seen... the place was reasonable for the price and the location was convenient, but being charged for something...More

    Hi there, Most people only come for one night and most travelers have a tight budget so our aim is to keep the prices affordable. For people with a more relaxed budget, we have a restaurant downstairs, with good food and lovely wine! Thanks

    Dear reviewer, I am a bit disappointed with the review title, as your 'pros' seem to be good. We advertise as affordable accommodation, we are one of the cheapest in town, and we do not portrait ourselves as a motel. No where do we advertise...More
