              location, comfort, cleanliness

              we had an overnight stay at The Slipway . The room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. bed comfortable. The bistro at the hotel was satisfactory, and we enjoyed our meal. The hotel is centrally located and very close to the river, so enjoyed an early morning walk along the river broad walk and down the main street/shopping area. We would stay there again.

              Central, comfortable bed, good size room. Air conditioner was the loudest we've ever heard, luckily we could turn it off overnight even though it was really cold. Meals at the attached hotel are really good. Note that you need to check in at the bar as there is no reception. Good value for money.

              Our stay was just what we needed. Considering the motel is above a pub is was very quiet and the rooms were spotlessly clean. We stayed here as it was the closest and most affordable place we could stay while attending the Splendour festival.

              Look, the Hotel was a place to put your head down, and the rooms are large. However, the TV didnt work (I didnt have a switch on, but a staff member showed that to me but buggered off before we realised that the actually TV only had sound and no picture. The Remote control was broken as well. At least 2 of the lightbulbs didnt work, and the tiles at the entrance to the bathroom were loose underfoot. Overall probably a bit run down. Bed was comfortable and facilities were OK. Pillows were hopeless. Needs a bit of TLC probably.

              Booked in April, and rang hotel twice (documented) to ensure there were 4 seprate beds for 4 males in two rooms. Arrived in September, - each room had one double bed only. Nothing else available, no reduced tarrif for 2 persons instead of 4, and had to pay for another room in another hotel (which they did help find). Can't comment on other points as I didn't get to stay there. Booking system doesn't facilitate requesting separate beds, so had to follow up with phone call to premises, which weren't acted on.

              ▪ Barely maintained lean-to behind a malodorous pub. ▪ Housekeeping starts at 08:30, checks occupancy by knocking on the sliding glass doors. What a way to be woken! ▪ All facilities - and their condition - benefit or favour the owners or staff; the occupant has not been considered. The worst room I've yet to occupy this side of Asia.
