    Superb

    The staff were very friendly and helpful; for example, when we asked about the nearest Internet cafe as we needed to check in for our flight home, he instead offered to do it for us. The room had a cool, design-led feel. Also, fab location (especially if you know your way around a bit). around a bit).

    There isn't a lift, but the staff did offer to help with bags. Room had rather subdued lighting - great for atmosphere but may not always be practical. Would have been good to have free wifi access for the price.

    uber-groovy, but comfortable and faboulous location.

    the standard rooms are tight, though well designed. uprading to the end rooms is nice for a longer stay. This is the only hotel in the world where room numbers and floors don't align: memorise with care or you will never get back to your room.

    Superb

    The Kirketon is unbeatable in the combination of quality, comfort, cost and location.

    The bathroom tiles and sink were a bit one the worn and chipped side, this did not bother me too much, but to fellow patrons, it could be seen as a bit dull on the side of the cost of the room.

    Good

    The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

    The hotel is in a great, central location but the noise from the street below on a Saturday night was enough to wake us up several times - they could definiltey do with some extra sound proofing. The room was a bit tired looking which was surprising considering the high room rate - we had a broken light fitting and a missing fixture on a wall panel which both should have been repaired. The facilities were very basic.

    Great bed, very good iron. Great staff.

    No cupboards, bad lighting, hopeless hand basin, no tv guide and no abc on the tv, stupid mirror, cheap ironing board and the felt too thin, safe 2 inches off the ground and very, very inconvenient. Who designed these rooms ??

    Superb

    Very desing and stylish. We were upgraded for free and the room was really nice. Great bed and concept bathroom. Staff was really welcoming and helpful. Location is great for restaurants, bars and also central.

    Only a small thing : the shower was almost completely in the dark so not very pratical.

    Good

    The room was incredibly small. I basically had one foot of space surrounding my bed. The bathroom was so tight that when I sat on the toilet, my knees touched the wall. There was no space at all for storage. The closet was also very small with very limited shelving. Also, my fridge was never re-stocked during my entire four day stay. The guys at the front desk were all good. The phone system did not work well, as I had two people who said they were unable to leave a message. The hotel might be okay for a one night stay. But, for anytime longer than that it seems unacceptable.

    Fabulous

    Location was excellent right next to Victoria St. The room was clean and comfy.

    The room itself was quite small and the taps were dripping. Hardly a five star service. The street in front was a very heavy traffic pass through street.

    Location, friendly staff

    Dirty windows, leaking taps in bathroom, chipped tiles, poor water pressure in shower which was only lukewarm.
