Large room with all the required facilities - lounge, kitchenette and bathroom. Lovely wooden floors with high pressed ceilings. Very comfortable, cost effective and highly recommended. Breakfast was excellent.

The rooms (or rather mini-apartments in the case of the suites!) are lovely, and the combination of location, price and loveliness of everybody involved couldn't be better. I'd definitely stay here again.

Friendly staff/owners. Comfortable beds and very large rooms. We wanted to stay in the heart of Melville and this establishment is perfectly positioned. Only 2 minute walk to the strip where you find all the restaurants. We enjoyed our stay.
