5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A gem!
After many chops and changes to our plans, we got to the Argus. The staff were so welcoming, respectful and couldn’t do enough to help. Room was an ideal size, everything that we needed was either in the room or provided once we asked. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Prepayment taken day before, never had this visits
A bit disappointing to get message that a prepayment was done day before arrival. Not ever had this before as stayed previous times and paid on arrival. Contacted hotel. Com staff surprised they did this. Is in fine print apparently. Check in quick on arrival, paid $9 fir onsite parking on lower level, is tight spaces if near other vehicles. Room clean, bed comfortable, good bathroom facilities with plenty of water pressure with shower. Good buffet breakfast included in price with plenty of variety, no running out of anything with staff constantly restocking all items, was about 9am in morning being busy with other guest, is available from 6am was told. Good quick check out, only had issues leaving lower car park with exit blocked by guest vehicles departing at front parked near foyer entrance, wasn’t long delay but inconvient.

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
When we arrived we realised there was no microwave despite kitchen facilities. However, we mention this to reception and a microwave and plates and cutlery were delivered to our room forthwith. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms large and the decor pleasant. The balcony is a little tiny though and the outlook not very exciting. The bathroom handbasin is impractical for anything other basic handwashing as it is raised and tiny, so water gets all over the bench top and floor. The shower screen is too small and so when showering, water again, goes all over the floor. There was no recycling available and when we entered the room it was like a fridge and so we turned off the airconditioner and left it off.
