Q: Is there car parking available?

Yes, there is car parking available mostly in the street and we give you a parking permit. There is no cost for parking.

Q: Is wheelchair access available?

We have several studios that are suitable for someone in a wheelchair.

Q: Do you allow pets?

Yes, we do but only by prior arrangement and not in Budget Rooms. Just check with us prior to booking as there are certain size and pet restrictions and we do charge a nightly pet surcharge of $22.

Q: Is there a gym nearby?

Yes, just across the road and they have special discounted rates for guests of the hotel.

Q: Do you bulk bill under the patient travel subsidy scheme?

Yes, we do. We need your local Patient Travel Officer to forward us an Accommodation Approval form prior to your arrival and we need a signed Certificate of Specialist prior to checkout. It’s often confusing and guests are appropriately focussed on more pressing concerns, but give us a call prior to booking and we’ll help you through the process. Our aim is to make it as simple and hassle-free as possible for you.

Q: I want a quiet room, what room type should I book?

Because the majority of our guests need close proximity to local hospitals, we are located in an Inner City area close to a major thoroughfare and we have discounted certain smaller rooms as Budget Rooms because of this. These Budget Studios are mostly located at the busy Ipswich Road end of the building, are double glazed and every effort to reduce the noise from Ipswich Road has been made. If you would like to ensure that you are not placed near this major road, we suggest that you book a standard room and let us know that you would like a quiet room as there are plenty available.

Q: I'm a smoker, can I smoke in your rooms?

For the convenience of all our guests, smoking is not allowed in any of our rooms. However, most rooms come with a private balcony and there are many outdoor areas easily accessible for smokers.
