On arrival it appeared Agoda had passed on the incorrect reservation information, however I believe the receptionist mis-read the reservation details. The receptionist was rather rude. I was extremely disappointed with my first impression of the hotel. However, the receptionist on duty the following day and the staff in the restaurant were very pleasant and helpful.

Good value overall. The location is a bit out of the way though. There were lots of rules on the form I had to sign upon check in. The person on the front counter was very helpful and friendly. The room was sizeable enough and quiet except for the air rush noise from the air conditioning. I could not adjust the fan any lower. The room had a good size TV. The bathroom was very good also.

A bit claustrophobic ”

There's a door inside the room leading to another room so you're never quite sure if you have your privacy. There's just glass to look outside and have a view - but the windows can't actually be opened. This brings a lot of issues, like the smoke detector gets activated easily even from shower steam because there's no air circulation. If it does get activated - you need to pay considerable amount of money. Quite surprised this there wasn't any warning about this on the booking. Staff is friendly though.

comfy size king bed”

The location was good if you have a car. It took us no time to drive into the city and beaches. The facilities were good and the king size bed was fantastic. Food upstairs (figtree) was good and next door (wests) was very reasonable. I was disappointed about some people in the room near us who were being loud and banging doors up until 3am. I called reception and they said they spoke to the people but I couldn't sleep well after that and suffered the next day for it. I thought I should have been compensated with some breakfast vouchers or something like that but nothing was offered even though I asked. I also made a call prior to my arrival to ask for a quiet room as I can be a light sleeper but i was put on the side of the main road and I would have preferred the side facing the football oval.
