Positive Reviews

Convenient Location

This inn is situated in a convenient location in the suburban neighbourhood of Newtown. There is a supermarket and bottle shop just across the road, so you'll be able to stock up on all the necessities. In addition, there is a nice casual restaurant and bar just next door. If you don't feel like driving to town, you can use the bus to get around. The closest stop is also conveniently placed, just outside the inn.

Clean and Comfortable

Guests were pretty pleased with their accommodations here. The rooms are clean and spacious, the shower is lovely, and the beds are very comfortable. You'll have everything you need for a relaxing stay. Most appreciated amenities were the free and reliable Wi-Fi, and the complimentary off-road parking.

Morning Treat

The continental breakfast is highly recommended if you're looking to start off your day on a positive note. The price is quite reasonable given the amount and quality of food provided. For a small fee, you'll receive a generous hamper with lots of delicious items.

Negative Reviews

Road Noise

Some rooms are prone to traffic noise from the nearby busy street. Mostly the rooms at the front of the hotel have this issue. If you're a light sleeper, you can always request a quiet room in the back, but make sure to bring along your earplugs as well.
