Exceptional 10.0
Spent one night - Arrived very late at night after a long flight. Staff at reception were very friends. I booked one of the cheapest room as i only needed a bed to sleep. Room was small but hey i had what i needed. Clean and nice room to sleep. Overall had a good sleep/ rest. Would recommend place if you spending one night. Not sure how a long stay would be. But considering its close to everything makes it a wonderful spot. Thanks

Much Needed...
Complete exhaustion after very little sleep travelling which began 72 hours earlier on the Sunshine Coast, Qld and included work on the southern stretch of Victoria's coastline. All on wheels - no planes. So was precisely what I needed; an easy check-in, tasty meal in the attached restaurant and a comfortable bed. A very spacious ensuite larger than the bathrooms of some houses I’ve lived in also and perfectly quiet for me to replenish my sleep and then work from over my stay. All for a surprisingly valuable, competitive price.

Poor 2.0
Disgusting smell
When you reach the room floor, it was already full of smell of smoke. The water tap in the bathroom was movable and dripping. The toilet is full of urine smell. The bed is OK but the carpet is dirty. No one would feel easy inside such room. Some of staff was not helpful but luckily not all of them. Since a good discount was offered, we decided to bear with it for 2 nights. Amazed to see it was a 4-star hotel?!!
