4/10 Fair

Easy location to get around. Need to improve the cleanliness of the rooms, and take care the air con unit. My room's air con full of dust.
Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

Room was surprisingly quiet for its location and the bed was comfortable. Room is a bit dated. Hot water tap for the shower couldn't be turned up higher than half flow. The meal discount downstairs was a welcome bonus.

2/10 Poor

Bad condition, not clean at all, housekeeping not everyday, no regular staff in reception, toilet is broken, and stinky smell. The worst hotel in Australia, not worth for price.
