Cons: Have nothing negative to say
7,0 Good
Pros: Location was nice, across the road from the beach. Restaurants / pub were walkable. Got upgraded to a single room, which was nice. Nice and clean.
Cons: Internet was terrible, I was hoping to spend my evening researching my next destination, activities for the next day etc. I ended up having to go to a pub to get wifi. A little disappointing. Unfortunately, due to my arrival and departure time i did not come into contact with any staff, therefore they could not help me either (arrival was early evening) If you are requiring a good nights sleep only, this is probably not the place for you, rooms lead directly onto common areas which were quite noisy during my stay. not an issue, but if you are a light sleeper might be problematic.
6,7 Good
Pros: The place was clean and the staff were really friendly. The common room was really large and warm perfect for relaxing in the evenings.
Cons: The room was a bit too small for 4 people, there was no room to store bags or hang towels. The bed wasn’t too comfortable and was squeaky.

Pros: Very friendly staff, good facilities (kitchen provided everything, clean bathrooms), not too far away from town center with many restaurants, cinema, spa, car rental, harbour, etc.). Awesome hiking activities in the area (Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Shakespeare Cliff and many many beaches).
Cons: The bed was unfortunately very uncomfortable because of the mattress. It was impossible to sleep and I had to take painkillers because my back hurt that much. The bathrooms do not provide a sink big enough to wash your face, brush your teeth, etc. So people do that in the kitchen which was very disgusting.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Kitchen was spotlessly clean with all the utensils you could want, rooms were spacious
Cons: The WiFi wasn't great and didn't connect in the block I stayed in and the soap dish directly above the miniature sink made brushing teeth very difficult

Cons: Nothing special.
7,5 Good
Pros: Nice beach views
Cons: Wifi doesn't reach the building where the dorms are which was frustrating
9,0 Excellent
Pros: We were lucky enough to get sole access to the area with the room, kitchenette, and bathroom. My husband and I appreciated the unexpected privacy and short walk into town for dinner. Sue (I believe her name is) was absolutely lovely. She was prepared, knowledgable, and easy to talk to.
Cons: Only possible improvement could be WIFI that reaches all rooms. However, I am not someone with a phone addiction who requires wifi to enjoy my stay. It's simply the only area I can recall that could be improved.

7,1 Good
Pros: Location is a 15 minute walk to the wharf, restaurants and shops, cab fare is a flat $10. Self contained unit, would be great for families. Office manager Shivawn was helpful with the booking.
Cons: The rear entry door could do with a roller blind so the room stays dark in the morning, the glass is opaque but does not dim the room.

Pros: Lovely views and extra facilities on offer
Cons: Plug in the bath didn’t work therefore unable to have a bath. Unfortunately this was noticed after the office was closed. Also a number of cobwebs and dead flies on the outer closed patio with including dirty windows. Such a shame.
