We have stayed before and like the hotel. The location is fantastic, walking distance to many great restaurants and also shopping in Oxford St. The rooms are smallish but the beds are comfortable. I like the decor, although the furniture is now starting to be a bit tired. Will stay again.

Good location, close to city and to transport, Individual feel to the hotel, which is a major plus over chain hotels. Thoughtful decoration.

After a wonderful stay at another hotel this was a big disappointment. It's a very weird place where the dominance of dark atmosphere and black color seems to be employed to hide the dirty rather than being stylish. The room they got us had a steady leak from the AC and was really humid - thanks God they agreed to change us to another one! The region is a kind of red light district with both go-go and normal night clubs, very near to a train station. Well, that's the good part. The bad is that the area is stinky, dangerous, dirty, with homeless, drunk and high people around all day long... I'm telling: it's stinky... Well, as you may see the price, I was expecting something REALLY different, because we pay so much!

Unfortunetely we didn't have the best experience at the Kirketon. The room stunk of cigarettes, there were long hairs over the bathroom floor and on the towels, and I narrowly escaped being electrocuted by the kettle in our room after it blew up (the electrical products have never been safety tested and are quite old). What made this worse was the way staff dealt with it - they basically pretended it was all okay. I wrote to Kirketon management about my experience and they never replied. For this reason they won't get a second chance; I will never stay there again.

Staff were pleasant and very helpful. The hotel was probably uber cool a couple of years ago, but is looking a little shop worn now with the carpet on the stairs being threadbare. Worst problem was lighting which was quite moody, but made it impossible to apply makeup. Also wonder about the thickness of the walls, having been awoken at an early hour by bonking in the next room.

This is possibly the darkest hotel I've ever been to. It's so dark that it's depressing. There is no light in the rooms and everything is black. The fact that there is no elevator means you have to haul your luggage up sets of staircases. It may be 'chic' but certainly not somewhere I would ever recommend to stay.

Excellent location but the old building is very noisy from other guests at night. Noise travels in the corridors too easily. The hotel is overpriced for the size of the room and the poorly designed bathroom. Design features are elegant but design should not be at the cost of functionality.

This hotel was a real disappointment. We booked a "fancier" hotel for our 10 year anniversary, and were really disappointed. They don't even have a toilet for use, or a place where you can change when you arrive if your room isn't ready. We'd just had an overnight flight to Australia, and wanted to freshen up and change into shorts as it was such a lovely day already (at 7 or 8am). They sent us down the road just to be able to carry out what ought to have been a simple task! I couldn't believe it. The reception and communal hallways are painted black and feel very dark and unwelcoming. Definitely not worth the 120 pounds plus price-tag. The room was nice enough, but the hotel did not live up to expectations, sadly. I wouldn't rush to go back again, or to recommend it to others.

Enormously noisy hotel with very small rooms. Nicely decorated and good use of space but totally overpriced.

Used to love The Kirketon but it's showing it's age now. Not quite shabby but certainly well worn. My room was very small (double bed size room) and windowless which would make it very claustrophobic unless it's just a place to shower and put your head down at the end of the night

This was a delightful stay. Very upmarket botique style hotel with friendly staff, very conveniently located. Rooms are small but well furnished and clean with nice size bathrooms. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would seek to stay there again if I was in the area.

Hotel seems to be getting abit tatty now, appears to have been once the trendy place to stay and has probably now been surpassed by shiney new venues. Compact rooms have beds that are really too small but otherwise it's quite a comfortable hotel with very dim lighting particularly kind to hungover eyes. Very entertaining to see the clientele in the bar some of whom are trying rather too hard

we thought it was fantastic! perfect location - close to oxford st and close to Victoria St with brilliant cafes. Also, well within walking distance from the CBD. The restaurant and bar are absolutely brilliant! Great food, great wine list and spirit selection. We will definitely be back!

Great location, lots of very chilled out bars and bistro's nearby. Chic and simple rooms with everything you need. This is a budget hotel so do not expect big hotel facilities or concierge type service.
