Whilst Shower was excellent bathroom was too small and the basin too small and shallow in depth. The toilet was too close to the wall and door to sit comfortably. TV was tube type - too old and reception and channel poor.

The location and general theme of the hotel was great, quirky and different. We loved the ivy covered exterior, the location and the idea of the decorating. The customer service was, however, awful and detracted so much from the experience! All the staff except one where rude and not in the least welcoming, warm or helpful, never smiling and unapproachable! The room cleaning service wa!s poor as was the general cleanliness of passageways, stairs and pool area, with dirt, stains, animal hair and the ever present smell of cigarette smoke lingering! So sad to see wasted potential

I stayed in the budget original room, there are nicer rooms but this was very budget indeed, should not be priced more than $70, but I paid around $98. Scruffy walls, the tap in the bathroom was dripping the whole time, the air conditioner didn't work, the bench in the room looked like they had picked it up from the side of a road somewhere. Also watch out for the parking if you need it as it is very tight. Other than that the bathroom and sheets were clean, the room was quiet and it was only 5 minutes walks from trams into the city.

The location was very good and the bed was quite comfortable. However the room was very old and it smelled badly.

It is a good hotel with an interesting concept (rock bands and references to the 1960-ties) at a relative low price. The staff of the hotel were competent and very helpful in an active and open way.

Great Location. Has a lot of character and the staff were great. Our room could have used a little TLC(having said that it looked like the motel maybe going through a few reno's) but it was clean and had great comfy beds as well as value for money.
