Location and the venue itself

Keith is a great host, friendly and helpful.The location of Maxwells is in a quiet suburb yet close to arterial routes. Beware that traffic is heavy at peak hour but ok if you travel counter flow.The morning view of the mountain from our room is spectacular.Would recommend for out of CBD stay.

The guest house was adequate for our stay and served only as a place to sleep and get ready for the day's adventures. The manager is friendly enough but the house is badly in need of maintenance and the breakfast is nothing to write home about.
