Return to the Roost

60 odd years ago when I was born in this industrial city I would have never expected such a transformation. Yes. It is a working harbour and that adds to the attraction. Tugs and ships coming and going day and night but hardly a sound is heard. The location opens up to the harbour foreshore for an easy stroll up to Nobbys and beyond. As long as you don't venture south of the railway you will have a vibrant and enjoyable experience.

Hidden Cost

When we arrived they offered to park the car and the next day when we checked out we where told that it was $28 for parking. No warning of cost, no signage and no mention when checking in. It would have been nice to have been informed. NO FREE WI FI!! As a business traveller free wi fi in the rooms the rooms is a must. I will not be returning.

Convenient spot with great view

The hotel is easy to spot out by GPS. Plenty spaces for parking on the other side of the road. Comfortable rooms with great view. Staff, however, is not welcoming enough.

Good position with water views

Only stayed the one night but it was very comfortable. We thought that $28 for overnight parking was excessive.
