Location, location & location
Excellent location, but poor hygiene, I must have spent around AUD$100 worth of cleaning agents/products to clean the room. The blankets are particularly filthy, the housekeeping staff although very friendly but lacks proper house keeping training, the reception staff mostly very helpful but they can also benefit from more training. The hotel is badly in need of a major renovation, no matter how tidy the room is really dirty, the only saving grace to this hotel is it's location. Also despite telling the front office reception person not to wake my husband and myself up in the morning (before 10 am), housekeeping kept banging on our doors and several times try coming into the room. It was quite embarrassing that one time my husband was not fully dressed and brushing his teeth...:( They only managed not to wake us up on the last three days of our stay and we stayed there for 11 days and prepaid in full for the most expensive room. All in all, I would only recommend this hotel if cleanliness or hygiene is not an issue and you need to be in the town center.

Worst room in the place
Location, comfortable bed, location
The front of the hotel and the reception area give the impression that this is a very nice hotel. However our room 202 was very dark and the only window/door looked straight out onto a concrete pillar. This room should only be used for storage - never rented to paying guests. The glass door/window looked inward so everyone coming and going from the lift could look straight in. The room itself was quite comfortable but the bathroom was old and needed updating. I wouldn't stay here again.

Hotel has potential to be v. good but let us down
Location - good & attractive outdoor space between room blocks.. Clean. Has safe parking.
We were let down. First room key was bent and didn't work. Very worryingly the outer mesh door didn't lock - no key- yet we got stuck in our room and reception had to come to let us out in the morning. Apparently this has happened before - a major risk in case of fire.(room 201) We had booked a triple room mid winter. No towel or blanket left for third person - had to go down to reception twice. Again, only 2 chairs at table despite sufficient space. Some of food at breakfast ( eg tomatoes) cold. These things could have been simply rectified and avoided. Definitely potential for quick improvement to make this a very good hotel.

Very average hotel
Location, restaurant pretty good
Average. Couldn't sleep with people talking loudly in the common area and smoke drifting in through the window. Comfortable enough but ugly little room, no charm
