Lee-Ann C. Groups Australia, September 1, 2014
Discovering a new problem everyday

Bedrooms were comfortable, spacious and good television channels
We were greeted by a grumpy receptionist who said that we were too early and early check in was only available subject to availability despite the fact we had given months of notice. He reluctantly gave us a key after 5 mins. When we went upstairs the first thing we saw was a flooded entrance with sheets at the front door as a soaking device. We had to jump over the puddle created by the aircon to get into the room. We had no hot water for the 3 days we were there, we also had to run the water for 2 mins before the water became clear. This happened every morning. The safe did not work and no matter what we put in, the response from the safe was ba-HI. The chair in the living room had a broken leg so was not able to be used for sitting. The cabinets in the apartment are purely for aesthetics. Do not open them or it might collapse on you. When we tried to open the window for some fresh air we realised the windows were screwed shut. On the positive, at least the beds were clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel if you only intend to come back to sleep.

Fair hotel in good location

Location, location, location
Great location where there is good food nearby. Poor carpark facility though and having to continually change lifts between ground floor to lobby and then in another lift to rooms was a hassle

Suite for those group & family traveler to stay

Near Town, Apartment Type, Easy to reach any
Good! Suitable for big group & family to stay together as it is apartment type and more people can together. However lift may need to continue maintenance and it is a bit old & need more services I guess.

Nice simple place to stay for big groups

Location location location
Central location was excellent. There were restaurants/places to eat nearby and many attractions which were walking distance. The 2 room apartment had a simple decor (not to our taste, but wasnt there to enjoy the room design anyway) and came with a fully kitted kitchen (including utensils such as plates, forks, spoons). Room was clean and the said kitchen utensils were clean too. Only issue with the room was that it only had 1 bathroom. So, have to take turns to use the loo or to shower. But it wasnt a major problem.
