    "What security???"

    room was smaller than advertised on the internet but clean - unfortunatley the toilet would not flush and refill and there were no rooms to move to that night so had to move again the next day.

    Moving from the 2nd the 1st floor meant more street noise as all the smokers congregated under the windows and talked loudly and drunkenly for hours! along with the trams there was no sleep to be had until around 2-3am in the morning!!!

    On our second to last night we had the unpleasant suprise of a staff member and the girl he had picked up for the night entering out room at 12.50am to find someone to have some 'fun' - so much for the advertised 'security?'!!!

    Very disappointing as the continual parties meant continued noise!! and the dungeon kitchen is awful!! Would never go there again and would no recommend to friends.

    Would you recommend to a friend? No

    Hi Clint, I was sorry to read your review about your recent stay with us. Am hoping I can quick address some of these issues. Firstly the most serious one : that of security. Please note this was not a staff member. This was a guest who had found a guest key which was misplaced that day. The key opened several doors on the second floor. This was a coding error on our system which was a ‘one off’ situation and was immediately corrected when it was brought our attention the following day by yourself and the guest in question was evicted immediately. We can understand your concern and assure you that this was an isolated occurrence. Again our sincere apologies. Regarding the toilet. We pride ourselves on a 1 hour turnaround for minor problems and an 8 hour rectification if the issue requires a tradesman. In this case unfortunately we were not able to have the loo fixed until the morning at which time I believe you made the decision to move rooms regardless. This would have been an annoying inconvenience and we thank you for being patient with this situation. Finally the noise. This is certainly an issue we take seriously. The weekends especially can be noisy in stkilda. Luckily trams only run until 12.30 but people walking by and coming home can be disruptive. To combat this we provide free earplugs, and carry out several security checks during the night. Having your sleep disrupted must have impacted on you stay and we are sorry for this. I hope you will consider at a later date giving us another opportunity to accommodate you. Indeed you may enjoy our kitchen also next time. It was renovated earlier this year with no expense spared and receives outstanding feedback. Good luck with your future travels. Regards, Bianca (Rooms Manager)
