Business Trip.
Bathroom needs a refit. They don’t follow their environmental policy by giving new towels everyday, even when you hang them up as requested. Won’t be staying here again.

Clean and comfortable.
The room was clean and comfortable. Some of the power points may need looking at as they were difficult to use due to their age Next time may ask for a ground floor unit as the stairs were hard to manage with my case by myself..

Buffalo Inn review
If you want basic accommodation at an affordable price, this is quite ok. The hotel is of an older style and has only 2 floors with no lift. The room had a set of bunk beds as well as a seemingly small queen bed which was not overly comfortable. We stayed for 3 nights and I woke up with a sore back. each day. It sleeps 4 people and while it was ok for 2 of us, it would be a bit too cosy for my liking if it was accommodating 4. There was a good selection of pillows and extra blankets provided if required. Air con was pretty noisy but at least it had one. Toiletries consisted of liquid hand soap and a liquid combo of shampoo/body wash. It had reasonable quantities (about 6 - 8) of tea, coffee & sugar & also had some small milk tubs in the bar fridge. The shower was really good, even though it was over the bath but there was a very noisy exhaust fan(separate from the regular bathroom one) that kicked in every now and then. As far as security goes, it had a safety chain for the door but no safe to keep valuables in. Any staff that we spoke to were friendly and the hotel is in very close proximity to all the action of Glenelg pier, main shopping and entertainment areas - about a 10 minute walk. It is also across the road from a small park & the marina area. Parking and Wifi were included in the price
