Ron H. Couples Australia, July 27, 2015
Not again

Location, location, location
We have stayed at this hotel several times under both the currentr ownership and the fdormer (Sebel). In our view it has gone downhill and seems to have a overly focus on cost cutting (not even a biscuit in the room although a good variety from the mini bar). Room service was prompt but the tray remained outside our room with leftovers on it for over 24 hours. Evening snack was just OK; breakfast of bircher muesli and yoghurt was more than ample, both being far more than we could consume. Reception service was polite but somewhat understated. We were not asked 'how was your stay' and once payment was made there was no 'thank you for your stay' or 'hope to see you again'. Consequently the opportunity to hear we would not return again - and why - was missed. As stated above, our view is that the hotel and service has gone downhill since Rydges took over particulry in terms of the friendliness of staff and the amenity of the hotel.

Four stars?

Location was good next to train station . Easy to find. Staff friendly
Very noisy room with passing traffic and fellow occupants. The lift worked occasionally. We asked for a replacement hair dryer which never came. Bar fridge not stocked. Buffet breakfast overpriced at $34

Enjoyable stay

Location, comfort, amenities.
We loved our stay here. Didn't dine here at all so can't comment on that but the room was nice and spacious. There was a lot of noise from surrounding rooms but nothing too annoying. Our daughter made use of the pool and spa and loved the 'Glam Clam' and under floor fish tank. We were within walking distance of everything and would definitely stay here again. Staff were very pleasant and free wifi was also handy for our young daughter.
