Ii is in a beautiful settling, calm and peaceful. My room was more like an apartment, with lounge/study, bedroom and bathroom (no kitchen). The mid-century furniture is well preserved,

Uni House is in a great, quiet location. Despite it being an old building it is clean and spacious. Check-in is always easy and the staff are friendly. Fellows bar is also nice for a drink in the afternoon. I would recommend this especially to people who have a car, as it is a bit of a walk into civic.

2/10 Poor

I stayed 2 nights. There was no air conditioning. The shower was cold. I told the front desk about it the second morning and they said they would check it. Still cold on the second night. It was like staying in an army barracks.

It was what I expected for the price, although they didn’t mention the shared bathroom facilities until the confirmation phone call on the day before I checked in.
