                          The suite was tiny a small sofa.

                        • Location and the impeccable renovation of a charming mansion, great Stay, lovely building. And good price and friendly staff. The room was comfortable, we dined at the Charsfield's restaurant and our meals were wonderful.

                          Old hotel in need of refurbishment.

                        • Great location and access to everything by tram, the hotel reading room is very pleasant.

                          Narrow bathrooms that appeared much bigger on the website, restaurant quite expensive.

                        • Pleasant surroundings, wonderful boutique hotel and appointments of the well maintained heritage building. Convenient and good price, nice old style + free internet, the staff were very helpfull and friendly. The bed was comfortable and the food was great.

                          The room was quite small, no beer on tap and the beer was too expensive $ 7.50 for a stubbie.

                        • Location is good and the hotel is a lovely Victorian mansion that has been refurbished. The room is very nice and the restaurant is excellent.

                          Bathroom quite small, the dinner/lunch options too were a little limited and expensive.

                        • The location is convenient, the amenities of the hotel are as expected and the little flat screen TV is just nice for the room. Restaurant food is very good.

                          Very narrow bathroom, expensive breakfast.

                        • Area is very quiet and the Hotel employees are very nice, friendly. Service is good and would recommend to others, perhaps different rooms have a better setup.

                          The bathroom was dirty and the breakfast was ok, and I thought a little expensive at $23.

                        • In a good location and a quick tram ride into the city. The hotel is extremely charming and the staff is delightful and very helpful. The rooms are very spacious, unusually large.

                          I loved the old building has been lovingly restored.

                        • Location is quite good, trams are just across the road and 5 minute ride in CBD, the situation of the hotel is very near to downtown. The staff is very helpful, room is fine and excellent wine list, cheese board and deserts.

                          Lovely old building and price was not too expensive either. Shower was not great, food was not acceptable.

                        • Just outside the city, parks and is excellent value for money, the hotel itself has great ambience, very romantic decor, snooker room etc_, really lovely place. The prices are reasonable worth every penny and the personal to reception is nice. The bed is very comfortable, the breakfast are very good.

                          Its a big old house in between several modern office buildings, staff unwilling to undertake services like confirming flights.

                          This hotel is old world.

                          The relaxed atmosphere, fantastic old building and reception recorded incorrect expiry date for my credit card. Free internet is limited in your room.
