I actually changed my booking in Sydney becuase my 1st choice was renovating the pool area and I needed a hot tub to relax after my hike each day. We used it the forst night and it was great. The next day after a long day outside i got all reasy to go back to the pool , swim suit on and ready to get in. I couldnt open the door. There was no way to get ahold of staff from that area. I had to call numerous times to rea h the front desk to be told the pool was closed with no explanation. When checking in, we were not told we had to pay for parking. we were given our ticket to show we were staying at the hotel. I thought parking was free. We could have parked on the road (and extra 5 steps ) for free.
