High end trimmings but poor service
The lobby looks awesome. The room was spacious. Plenty of parking. But this hotel was a poor man’s attempt at being classy. Some things they could improve: - Lack of towels in our room when we arrived. Asked housekeeping for a hand towel, got a facecloth. - Our room was not serviced Day 1. We were ok with that, but called the desk on Day 2 to ensure we were not missed again. We were given assurance that they would make up our room. When we came back in the afternoon, our room still had not been cleaned. Had to call again. It was finally done very late that day. So bring your own toilet paper :) - The room has a bar fridge and even a wine fridge, but no tv channels. ABC and one or two other channels was pretty lame. - No tidy bin in the room. - Cobwebs on the ceiling - First room I’ve stayed in with a set of scales, yet they didn’t work. - No bar snacks or drinks, but weird a list of charges for the kettle, chair, toilet paper bag etc (see photo) - Console table has a stationary holder, yet it is empty - no pen or paper. - Doors absolutely slam. They are loud and buzz if left open. - Room service was good. - Additional to fee, they charged a credit card fee at check-in. I would try other hotels if in the area again. While it wasn’t awful, it certainly wasn’t great. It felt like some foreigner has bought a hotel, but doesn’t know how to run it. They also need to understand the Australian market.

Staff were very accommodating when we requested a room change. Could provide hand towel and maybe biscuits could be supplied with tea and coffee in room.

6/10 Good

Hotel is a little dated and requires a lot of maintenance. Rooms are small and not worth $280 asking price. Amazing breakfast, good value. Dinner is a little expensive. Was quiet and could sleep once the pipes stopped creaking.

I had a rather apathetic person checking me in, poor customer service, and little provision of information.
