Very good 8.0
Naomi - at reception is great, very welcoming and helpful. Units are a bit tired, though I understand new owners may be doing some upgrading. Fine for the purpose of my stay - I had no vehicle and I could walk to supermarket or catch bus to larger shopping centre.

I wouldn't return. I travel a lot for work and I thought this was overpriced. The room smelt terrible, so musty. Unfortunately a smelly room gives the impression of being dirty. I don't think it was dirty but the smell was very offputting. I would have paid $90 to stay here, not the $165 I was charged.

A disappointing experience.
Disappointed that we were not taken to our room, just shown on map. It was dark, hard to find, and the outside light was not on. It was scary walking down the ramp or the steps in the dark. The heater had not been turned on, and once inside we had to feel our way around to find light switch. I had booked the room with a king bed, but the bedding was too small. The sheets came untucked, the electric blanket was so small that the control part was about a foot in from each side of the bed, which meant we were lying on them. Hard and uncomfortable. There was no bigger one available, and the man in the office said it was not worth getting a bigger one for just one bed. We took it off to get some more comfortable sleep. The duvet was also far too small. We had to turn it sideways to get some duvet each. Then it just made it to the sides of the bed! Overall, it was a disappointing experience, and the manager was not interested in our comments, and seemed very bored with the whole thing. Don't book the king room if you come here, as it is not worth the money.

Comfortable and clean! Attentive to our needs!
Was perfect for the four of us as we needed a separate room and this had it! We were a late arrival as their desk closed but they had the room ready and directions on the lobby door with a note for us. We felt they had our backs!
