1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nothing at all the room stank the carpet was soaking, it is more of a doss house than a so called hotel. The only saving grace is that it’s close to The Gabba, a pub & restaurant. Avoid at all costs. Full of noisy people, a truly awful experience. I wasn’t game to even make a cup of tea.

Mildew in shower. Hand basin had been roughly painted to try to cover black marks. Cockroach on wardrobe. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Not good
It was cheap and close to the Gabba, apart from that I have nothing good to say. The online photos show two significantly different room options without any reference to either. The complex is dated and appears to have lacked maintenance since it was built. The surfaces in the room were dirty and grimy, to the extent I felt I needed to wash my hands after turning off the shower taps. The complex is adjacent to a major arterial road, and the sound of traffic can easily be heard, when a plane is not flying overhead as we appeared to be on a flight path also. Added to this a communal gathering area was below our second storey room, and from the early hours of the morning through to when we left at 8am we were able to enjoy the conversations of these people who appeared to be long term residents of the complex. If you are looking for location and price it may be for you, it’s not for me.
