We havent booked in a shared bathroom facility before but it wasnt too bad. The staff were excellent and reception. If you are after flash then this isn't the place for you but it is really well located and the place was great.
Great location as very vintage looking hotel. Bad smell along hallway, otherwise all good.

This is an older building and very much a work in progress. This isn't our first stay at the property, hopefully we will see some improvements when we stay next. After we left, we reached out the the management explaining how the discomfort that we have experienced from the numerous issues during our recent stay did not not justify the price we paid. We hope the issues of cleanliness, and other inadequate amenities that we raised will be rectified.We advise the potential guests to avoid the rooms facing the Kent Tce. we also suggest you compare the photos of the rooms on the website with the actual room you will be staying in. In our case they were misleading.
