The owner, Burt, was exceptional - helpful in every aspect and provided superb local knowledge and recommendations. The bed was amazingly comfortable, the little freebies (I'll let you discover them for yourself) were a lovely treat, the linens so soft and fresh, the views and location perfect. We are seasoned travellers (over 100 bookings in the last 2 years) and highly, highly recommend this place.
One day we put a Do Not Disturb sign on the door one day (while we were out) but they still made up the room. We were happy to reuse the towels so this felt like a bit of a waste. Minor gripe that hasn't affected the overall experience though!
Very clean and comfortable room. Many restaurants and Victoria and Alfred's Waterfront on walking-distance. Nespresso coffee, nice cookies and fantastic sweeties on my room! And this all for a very reasonable price! Highly recommended. Nice tips from the host.
I can't think of anything. I'm sorry.
Wonderful welcome, excellent facilities, standards are so high it’s incredible! Great location for a fine wander along the prom and to the Waterfront (30 mins safe walking). No hesitation in recommending. Do yourself a favour and book here.
Burt is a friendly host who gives super cool recommendations and gave us a safe feeling. we’ll come again!
The view, cleanness, hospitality, the location, very quiet and safe
