Travelled with family and small children
Not a 4 and a half star service. We try to order room service at 9:20pm was told that we can’t order late night menu too late to cooked hot chips for kids, fish and chips for the adults menus at all at and told to looked at a different night menu. For adults menus we can only can order 5 meals on it not much choices and was told that the bar close can’t order soft drink at all either. We travel often in Australia and overseas too. We were disappointed.

Nice location, but the room had no microwave oven. Also, there was no self parking, only 'valet' parking, which I hate.
