Very good 8.0
Good location helpful staff, could have been a touch cleaner, fridge an example
Stephen, au4 night trip
Poor 2.0
Most disappointing thing is to know that this hotel provides room service only if the stay is more then 7 days, this was advised at the time of check in when you dont have any option to go elsewhere. No ventilation in shower, no soap holder in shower, no fan or aircon in lift. Very bed odour from carpet in common area (specially on 5th floor).

Very good customer service and system. Clean everything in room, free parking, good location. Pillows could be better than too soft.
Sunny, au1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Located on main road. Check out closes at 5pm but instructions were given for after hours checkin. Underground carpark has limited parking. Not luxurious but a bed for the night. Reception staff very pleasant when checking out.
Simon, au1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Could hear doors slamming all night Could hear next level walking A bit short on cleaning
cj, au3 night family trip
Good 6.0
I didn't feel that the room was cleaned properly and during the corana virus pandemic I felt it was a vital service, I booked a queen bed and whilst I received a "king" it was two single beds pushed together which was quiet uncomfortable for me and why I book for queen. The best thing about the room provided was the sunshine that poured in every morning.

Very clean spacious , Staff helpful with tours and directions 10 min walk to esplanade bus 5 minutes up the road
KAREN, au3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great location easy to get to places of interest,however car-park is too small and you cannot utilise a toaster due to smoke alarm being too sensitive.
