James Finger

29 March 2010 James would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms are great and well appointed. The rooms are broken up into units so each 3 rooms have their own kitchen and lounge, kinda like a uni accom setup. Not too long a walk to a few pubs. They did throw out my big bag of food though. Kinda my fault, I forgot to label it, but still, over $40 of food gone :(

Liked: The staff wern't the most talkative however they were helpful whenever I had any enquiries and even loaned me a towel at no extra cost. I stayed in the dorm room and it is one of the nicest I have stayed in so far. Was clean and well furnished and had everything you needed to relax and look after yourself in comfort. Fully recommend

Liked: The manager was very helpful in picking up & dropping us off at the bus terminal & booked our trip to Fraser Island for us. The accommodation is in apartments, 3 rooms to an apartment with one kitchen, lounge & bathroom to share which is good as there aren't any queues for the bathroom in the morning or to use the kitchen at night.

Suzanne Greenop

23 June 2009 Suzanne would recommend this property

Liked: Lovely apartment-style accommodation sharing with only a few others. A real homely feel - great bedrooms complete with teddies on beds! Clean bathroom and sociable kitchen/diner and lounge areas. Only a short walk to the main street with shops and cafes, although a bit further to get to the supermarket I recall. Bicycles available to borrow - nice for a ride along the seafront down to the pier.

Disliked: Suzanne left no negative feedback.
