      This place is great, the staff are extremely helpful and the location is central. It also has parking, which is not common in Q'town. I was surprised at the laziness of guests though, who left dirty dishes and half eaten food all over the kitchen and lounge. I would stay here again though.

      Good location and literally right in town to walk every where. Friendly staff and helpful. Cheaper accommodation, but suitable for the traveller who is happy with the basics. Spa was great and had free bikes to cover a bit more ground. Wifi was a bit hit or miss, could only get into certain apps with it.
