2 nights here

Location, cleanliness and Location
If you look for a hotel not to far from center and near to Parliament ( 10 mins walk). This is an acceptable one. It is surely clean and meet the industry standard. However, staff here and other things is not much proactive and not meet our expectation for a hotel claimed themselves 4 stars and under given price we paid.

Most expensive but the most basic hotel

Bottle of wine was a nice touch thanks.
Because of the Elton concert pricing was jacked up. Opportunistic and unnecessarily greedy on the part of the industry. Soured the experience. I rated the hotel on how much they charged to find it was a budget affair. Ripped off

An Overnighter

Location, location, location
Carpark was not included even though the carpark area was part of the hotel; we paid an additional $15 for the carpark. Room was clean but bed was lopsided and uncomfortable. Did not sleep much at all due to the discomfort. Only one bedside table on one side of the bed. I think this was more of a three-star hotel. We did not eat at the hotel so the 1 (one) point given is not indicative of that service. Poorly laid out questionnaire as it needs to have a N/A option available.

Great for what we needed, not so much the food

location, price, quiet
Staff were friendly, room was satisfying. The food was average as, risotto was really salty and the pork chop was tiny and tough and not worth the $30 you pay for it. Quiet room and great location for the airport
