4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We paid a premium - $440 - for the room, it was on level 1, overlooking the carpark - which was very disappointing. We heard people rocking up that night to book vacant rooms on "Level 5 over looking the ocean" for less than we paid. Then a fire alarm went off at 5am, as the room beside us burnt toast. Once the alarms stopped, then the firemen walked the hall, the firemen cleared the area, then was then ANOTHER 2 announcements confirming everything was ok. That was it for us, no more sleep.

The carpet in our bedroom was stained, looked dirty. Curtains also dusty. Did not look or feel like a four star
