Pretty good once we found it!

Bit of a confusing set up with a big Rydges sign and much smaller signs to signify Aluxstay and Sleep and Go etc.. Staff were friendly and helpful and the Courtesy car driver was particularly nice (although we didn't end up using that benefit) Room was a good size with a compact but useable bathroom. The Kitchenette facilities were handy but could have been better laid out. I found the bed fairly comfy but my wife didn't. Preston is a little bit far from the CBD but only a short walk to Plenty Road where the # 86 Tram takes you into the city in about 30 minutes. It was reasonable value for the price we paid.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The Colonial Tram Car Restaurant does a 2 hour tour of the city and 4 course lunch with drinks for $85 a head. Very nice treat (we would do it again) Well organised and the food was tasty.

Only the second time I've stayed

Only the second time I've stayed at this hotel and definitely won't be the last time. Well appointed rooms and facilities. Only critisism is walking into the ensuite, kept stubbing my toes.
