If you are visiting from out of town, anywhere on lower Trafalgar Street is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk along the river to reach the Trafalgar Centre.  Most accommodation on the perimeter of the city centre will be no more than an easy 20-30 minute walk.  Here's a few suggestions:

Collingwood Manor

Five beautiful rooms, each with its own private ensuite, as well as heat pump / air conditioning, flat screen TV and DVD player. Book and DVD library,  guest lounge, veranda and garden. All guest rooms also have tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. Every booking includes a full continental and, or cooked breakfast.

Trailways Hotel

Palms Motel

We can also brag about our cycle ways and river walks, a plethora of street art and locals always willing to answer questions and point vaguely in the appropriate direction. We've also booked sunshine for the weekend, so no excuses.
