    Horrible

    Supposed to have free bottle of wine and upgrade to better room with gold membership. They gave me a tiny broom cupboard to stay in. Had to complain to get wine and slightly bigger room. Disappointed with place. Took 15 mins waiting at reception to be served

    Great location

    Great location. Friendly staff. A bit dated. No pen or paper in room. No extra blanket…. I had to use a couple of towels. Could not bare to be in reception or bar or restaurant as the smell from the large gas fire was over baring. Others mentioned it too.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing

    Hotel is in very central location close to everything. However the room was very small, we couldn’t open our suitcase. We didn’t get a bottle of wine as advertised on the Hotel.com application. We paid for deluxe king room and we were surprised to have such a small room with not enough space to even open our suitcase. Very disappointing

    Great location, watch out for work being done

    Room was clean and tidy. Second time staying here. Only negative, there was obviously work being done in the rooms either side of us. On the morning of check out, the tradie started chipping at tiles at 7am. Not ideal!

    Clean but Lobby facelift required

    Room comfortable and clean. Friendly reception staff. However, continental breakfast shocking. Advised no fruit available so instead served an entire bowl of rotting (brown/bruised) white grapes. No jam for toast but 2 bowls of margarine/butter. No hot water available in dispenser and faulty toaster. The toaster needed manager who had to switch it on/off at wall to restart? No apologies from Manager on duty at all. He was exceptionally unprofessional and borderline rude. Wasn't offered an apology or alternative option? Ordered Meals however from chef looked good.

    One night in the city

    stayed one night on Good Friday. We required a car park & the only option was valet parking at $25 a day.  I had booked a Deluxe room with a view. We did have a view of the Cathedral but I'm not sure if our room really was Deluxe, it was pretty small. It was however comfortable. Checkout was 11am so that was good. The hotel is close by to restaurants, shops and the tram stop
