Lay from Malaysia
Stayed one night in September 2016
comfortable stay
The bed is good. We had a good night's sleep. The room is aged. What we wanted was a good bed to sleep on. We were looking for bedroom slippers but was told that they do not supply. For a hotel with aged carpet, I would think a bedroom slipper is necessary. The shower water pressure is not great but the bathroom amenities are fairly good.

Friendly staff but facilities could do with a refresh
Staff were friendly but the facilities need some attention. While the linen was clean and the bed reasonable the décor is dated. Furniture was tired and worn and my room had something of an unpleasant odour. Really didn't like that the bathroom in the no-smoking room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke on a couple of occasions. My room overlooked South Terrace with a view of the park but suffered from traffic noise. A shame really. First impression on check in was that the hotel seemed cosy but my room didn't live up to that impression.

I would bulldoze the place if I were you. I have never stayed in a place that needed so many repairs.

no elevator after hours
Elevator was closed at 11 pm till morning during my 3 night stay. I found it hard to climb the stairs with arthritic ankles as I came in late after visiting family. Elevator should be running 24 hrs.

Definitely will come back
I forgot to bring my ID, but they were very helpful. I feel welcomed, taken care of. Staff are genuinely friendly without being over the top. Magazines and newspapers are abundantly provided. In room Breakfast is value for money. Room is spacious and looking out to park, with high ceiling and common balcony. Parking is free and plenty of eateries around. Very small grievance is the old and noisy elevator, but it's nothing compared to great staff!

Comfortable stay at Chifley's
I had a 2 night stay at the Chifley's. It was a convenient location. There are places to eat food around the hotel. At a 10 minute walk - there is a tram service which is free to bring you to the city which is 3 stops away.
