Excellent hot breakfast. That snacks/tea/coffee/water were available throughout the day was an added plus. Staff was on the whole quite friendly.
Having a shared bathroom was not ideal, but that is what I had paid for, so I am not really complaining. I would have liked to see greater security with left bags after checkout, which could have been just handled by means of bag tags.
Very warm welcome, comfortable bed and ultra clean bathrooms, plus multiple bathrooms on each level so you never feel like you are in someone's way. Lots of fresh towels everywhere. Good selection at breakfast, including fresh fruit.
Coffee was bitter/burnt (but this is being really picky, Aussies are coffee snobs). Wish the cost was a bit lower given that bathrooms are shared.
The decorum, the staff, the breakfast, and the little extra touches such as the framed daily weather report next to the guest book and free postcards and postage.
The size of room was a bit small, however, our bathroom was en suite so I suppose that was a fair trade off.
Excellent breakfast (Although it was the same exact breakfast for seven days.)
No modern air conditioning; description states air conditioning. Found no room a/c vents;Hallways at 75 degrees; staff said air could not be adjusted. Rooms- hot and stuffy;must open windows at night;given a loud fan to cool off the room. Miserable.

I had a hard time getting into bed. It was literally touching the wall
