“Well located decent accomodation”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

We stayed in a superior balcony room. The room was clean, it had one double and one single bed. Everything you need but nothing fancy. The room doesn't really have an ocean view - you can see a small bit of the sea inbetween the building in front. Very well located in the centre of Albany. Breakfast is not included in the price and isn't available on week ends.

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment which is not part of the main hotel complex but over the road.. not a big deal though. The 2 bed apartments are actually a 1960's modernised triplex building with common walls and communal laundry..no blaconies..but you do see a fair bit of ocean from the living room window.more accurate to call it a 2 bed villa or flat

This accomodation was pleasant enough but there is no wow factor and it is due for a refurbishment.. the bathroom though reletively clean looks tired and dated and the kitchen is the same. the bed is a little old and there is only an aircon in the living room... yes if you open the windows the breeze is fresh and keeps you cool... but there is only flywire on windows so we didn't want to keep the windows open at night as there is no fences or security and anyone can walk right up to the building. We were lucky or unlucky depending on what you like to have had days in the low to mid 30's when we stayed so it was unusually hot for Albany.

It is close to town and nothing is more than a 5 minute stroll.

Although Albany is fairly quiet and this motel is not on a main busy road the road noise seemed to penetrate very easily and woke us up early every morning. The window treatments do not block much light so the light comes in early too. Not good if you wat to sleep in.

Would I recommend the apartment to friends? No probably not.. not beause it was awful but I know you can get much better accomodation for the same or less money elsewhere in Albany.

Spend the 2 nights at 2 storey, 3 rooms apartment. The apartment located at a quiet location in albany, quite far from the town. Overlooking the sea and park. Very stunning sunrise view. At evening we had a visit from wild kangaroos at the backyard,outside the wired fence. Kids were really excited. The apartment is clean with bathtub in the master bedroom near the window overlooking the sea. Really nice.. The apartment catered for self cooking.. The cooking utensils are clean. Will definitely return in future.

My boyfriend wasn't that "WOW" about the room but I thought it was really nice. Just what we payed for. A nice room, no good view unfortunately (but there was some other rooms with nice views) and mini fridge, kettle with tea and coffee and nice bathroom. It felt clean and safe. Really good location right in middle of town.

Room Tip: Might be an idea to ask for a room with view.

Very happy we chose to stay here, close to CBD. Staff were very helpfull, rooms very clean,we were only going to stay for one night but ended up being for 2. First night we stayed in the King Spa Room, which was awsome, roomy , clean and romantic. Second night we stayed in an Executive Room with Balcony, good view and the room was clean and bright. Next time we go to Albany we will be staying there and recommending it to friends.Great Guys Thanks.

Room Tip: whatever suites they are all great
