Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
By the time we arrived it had changed to a Quality hotel, not a Vibe hotel. The pool hadn't been cleaned in 2 months so it was closed. The pool was the main reason we chose this hotel for our holiday. Kids were really disappointed. Daily room cleaning left a lot to be desired, glasses and teaspoons weren't cleaned. Only one of 2 beds made. Front desk staff were super friendly and helpful. Given they had just reopened after a closure while the property was re branded, there was a lot of wear and tear that i would have tidied up if it were my business. There was mouldy silicone, mis matched lamps, mis matched spoons, mismatched wine glasses, quilt (with no cover) had stains. The breakfast was ok but not amazing considering the $16 price tag.

Absolutely loved our stay, staff extremely helpful . Lady from New Zealand that was on the front desk, cannot speak highly enough of how much she made our stay enjoyable, would recommend her very highly. Unfortunately I don't look at emails very often so this is 6 months late and I have lost her name.
