        • Single
          7.8

          It was economical and very close to where I needed to be. It was also very clean.

        • Couple
          6.6

          It's location to the centre of Victoria. The TV cabinet and matching bed would have looked fab new

          The room interior was very old and used, the bathroom fittings definately in need of replacement including a wobbly tap and a very, very used plug (which may have been white 10 years ago!!)

        • Single
          7.8

          Quiet

          not enough towels and breakfast too late for us early birds

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          We liked the hotel room, the location was good. Our neighbours were noisy in the hallway, being situated beside the Stickey Wicket--which hosts 3 bars, probably added to the noise of our neighbours--security had to be called to stop the revelry. One more complaint, the police were going to be called.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Great Location

          Some staff in the Hotels Bar/Front Counter were extremely rude.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          The location was very good for us. Staff told us the best bet of pasta restaurant. Besides, we can enter the club with no money!!

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Even thaough there are 4 different Bar/eating areas, you feel like an old friend who stopped by for a while no matter where you go in the hotel

          almost always stay here when in Victoria and no problems yet,,,except someone does empty the garbage bins at 5 am in the alley

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          rooms over noisy rooftop bar

        • Older travelers

          romance toRelax in the chity center

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The large screen and the Pubs and the patio.Friendliness of the staff.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The hotel was right downtown and close to restaurants and shopping. The room was very comfortable and the staff was great.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Great value for money, excellent location, real "Victoria Atmosphere", free continental breakfast

          It was noisy, but we've read the reviews so we expected it.

        • Couple
          6.6

          Excellent position, better price compared to other close by hotels, one of the front desk lady, Kara, was very helpful

          The hotel is not totally renewed, and as other reviewers said, there is a club next to it very very noisy. However, if you request in advance, the staff try to give you the best position room, relative to the club. The breakfast was poor, but at least included. I really didn't like the hot milk was not available (only cold) and the serving laidies were unfriendly

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Good location for the main sights and central to the area, clean comfortable easy to get to, adequate parking offered. Breakfast included more than adequate for setting you up for the day.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The room was small and uncomfortable with no extras-hair dryer, coffee maker etc, that you would exspect . it was advertized as deluxe but nothing deluxe about it.
