My Stay at the Olims

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2005

The Olims is a very old hotel. About 100 years I believe. If you stay in a newer section of the hotel, your upgraded rooms will be a different exerience from the 'standard' or lowest priced in the old section. I booked in advance and got a rate of $89AU for the standard room as part of a group. The rooms are comfortable (as are the beds) and have a fridge, coffee/tea, TV (5 channels) & LAN internet but are in need of some updating. The bathroom has a 'mini' tub with a shower. The carpet wasn't the best , the floor creaks a bit (to be expected in such an old place) and much of the room needed repaining. The old windows had many chips and the screens were a bit dirty. I had my room changed to the sunny side of the hotel (looks to the court yard) and found that room much more inviting than the darker standard room I first had facing Ainslie. There are several fireplaces in the hotel and the 'standard' section hallways always seems to smell of them. That said, the staff is generally very nice and accomodating!!! From time to time I met a few ladies at reception who were not quite as informed or helpful as some of their male supervisors but the staff was very good. On three seperate occasions they were very accomodating to assist me with some things I needed. I tried their breakfast buffet and it was lovely, if a bit pricey for a budget traveller. I ended up getting breakfast supplies from the market and keeping them in the fridge. Attatched to the hotel is a 'bottle shop' for wine & beer but I preferred to get my wine at the liquor market. Olims is a 5 minute walk down Ainslie St from a huge shopping center and the hotel is fairly close to many things other to do too. OveralI, found the Olims experience very nice.

Olims Hotel, beautiful garden!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2004

Olims has beautiful sculptured gardens and almost a French provincial feel. The interior has heaps of old world charm complete with a leather clad "cigar lounge", albeit quite small! Don't expect a huge party here, the bar is quite small and mostly empty, and the "cigar lounge" appears to be "just to look at", though Im sure if your game enough you could go in and use it!
The food in the restaurant was more like your average, fried pub meal.
The rooms were simple but confortable warm and clean. There was plenty of parking and you can walk into the centre of town. The war memorial was pretty close too. A great place to stay if you have a family.

Unique Quality: Beautiful gardens.
