10/10 Exceptional

The rooms were quite the surprise. Upon walking up to the building it looked old and tired, but the rooms were a real surprise. Freshly updated bedroom and ensuite. Clean and comfortable. The only down side was we were up the front of the property and the restaurant next door was noisy when cleaning and shutting for the night. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice basic property. Great location right in the centre of town. Lots of free parking. Rooms are very basic and small but everything worked, beds were comfortable and the bathroom had been renovated. The hot water system is very wasteful in that it takes at least 5 minutes of running the water to finally get hot water - what a waste!!! Note that the rooms are on the second floor and there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue for you, take note.

8/10 Very good

It’s def a motel - easy to check in and out. It’s something you don’t book if you want a bed with a view. The room was a great size, basic but good amenities, tv that has Netflix was nice and the staff was very friendly. The bathroom could be cleaner- it smelled slightly of urine and the toilet seat was stained with urine when we entered the room.

6/10 Good

Very mixed feelings. Room was lovely, very modern, lots of nice details; though very small, so a squeeze between 2 people and luggage. Window only had a black-out blind, so would have to put that down just to get changed - a blind that offers privacy but still let’s the light in would be better. Had the worst nights sleep the second night of stay - there’s some sort of sensor/alarm that was beeping in the hallway outside the room door. Was very loud and kept me up all night - not great with a 3.5 hour drive the next day! Cannot fault it for location - in the heart of town, and super easy parking.

The property itself is very old, and we were a little bit shocked when we arrived, as the photos on Expedia do not include clear photos of the exterior. The rooms have been renovated, but the carpet in our room was dirty and a gap in the window in the bathroom had been sealed up with duct tape. We could hear other guests through the walls until fairy late in the evening. It was serviceable, but I would not stay here again.
