Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Location was quite good. Amenities were extremely disappointing. Restaurant and room seevice closed, tv and phone in room were disconnected and spa out of order. Indoor pool was cold!!! Staff very reluctant to go out of their way to assist. Waste of money. Will not be returning.

4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I liked the comfortable beds and food available from cafe\bar. I did not like that parking was paid, $15 per night, because I didn't realise that when I booked. I didn't like that the spa was not working because that was one reason I picked that accomodation.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
I liked the advertised facilities, such as pool and hot-tub. Unfortunately we didn't manage to find out where they were because a) There was no compendium in the room (on check-out we were told we SHOULD have been provided a QR code for an e-compendium) and b) there was no one at the front desk nor answering the phone when I tried to find more details. Still it was a Sunday... and the restaurant was closed ... and who needs a pool or hot-tub on a cold Sunday at the start of covid restrictions!!!! Sadly I am using Rydges Parramatta as a baseline; great staff, service and facilities,
