Excellent location, staff were very helpful.

Location and staff
Excellent stay, staff were very helpful. In house dining was good and even the mini bar was very reasonable. Excellent place for a group of mates, couples and also singletons. Would definitely stay again.

Fabulous boutique hotel in a perfect location

Immaculate rooms, excellent staff and an ideal shopping location
The Olsen was perfect for me as a solo traveller. The rooms were well equipped and stocked full of amenities. The bed was really comfortable and bathroom kept very clean. The hotel is in the best location for eating, drinking and lots of shopping.

Location, Style, Check Out
I found the location and style of the hotel to be excellent. The staff seemed lazy and disinterested. They were short and not very friendly. When you made a request whether it be for fresh towels or room service, they were very rude and sometimes the request had to be made again. They didn't deliver on what was requested, consistently getting things wrong. Given the period of time i stayed there i had hoped for some change - nothing changed. Understanding the hotel would have been at capacity i certainly hope others did not have the same poor experience as i did.

Lacking Customer Service

Organised a late check out, however two separate staff walked into our room to clean it and front desk also called. None of the three were told about our late check out which was very annoying

location, pool, larger rooms
I have stayed here 5 times and had 3 great experiences and 2 awful ones. My last stay consisted of a TV that didnt work so we had to sit in the room with the room service lady on a chair trying to fix it for about an hour then we had the cleaner come and vacuum a broked light bulb we found underneath the couch that my partner happened to step on cut himself slightly. So all in all we had planned a romantic night together (my boyfriends birthday surprise from me) and it didnt turn out. Shame because I really love this place.
