    The sheet was not clean, there was one dirty towel hanging on the hook behind the door.

    I asked for a clean bedsheet to replace the one on the bed and I was told: “this one is clean I promise”, even it was obvious that the sheet was left dirty by a previous guest. The sheets are not always washed after the previous guest in this property.

    The location is great. The room was adequate in a Hotel setting. It was quiet

    A little breakfast. All rooms were fully booked. A mirror in the room. An extra power point, seeing the only one services the T.V & is secured to a side board protective panel. $95 per night for one twin room is somewhat out of their market value. But it was Saturday night & its supply on demand.

    The staff were polite and friendly, the room was clean

    I wasn’t expecting all that much but for $95AUD per night I do expect a bar of soap (particularly when it states that toiletries are provided in the booking.com description!) The small electric oil heater in the room was not adequate to heat the room and there was no chain to close the roller blind on the window (or any way to reach it to pull it down) The location might be okay if you have a car but if you’re on foot be aware that it’s a good 20-30min walk away from the centre of town, a factor if you came by train from Melbourne to visit
