2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Absolutely overpriced. The room was dated and somewhat grubby looking - the carpets and couch were stained and dirty looking and the dining chair cushions had tears. On arrival, we had to call a mobile number to find out what room we were in as there was no staff onsite. There was one wall-mounted soap dispenser for hand soap and for shampoo. We paid $272 per night and expected more for that price.

Extremely disappointed when checking in that reception isn’t open and there is a note on the door asking you to call a mobile and make sure you have your credit card ready. After calling several times it went to message bank and we then had to wait in the car park for someone to call back. After travelling all day and being wet from sightseeing, last thing I want to do it sit in the car waiting for a call back. Then to be told our room was unlocked and keys inside. Very poor way to run a business and won’t return. On check out also reception locked and just left keys in room. Weird very weird. Please be aware wifi advertised as available but we couldn’t get anything. Tried searching for our next days travel but not able to get on. Again disappointing.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very aged hotel. Dead bugs stains all over. There's no reception and check-in is done via phone and went straight to voicemail a few times but ultimately got a response. Most concerning part is they tell you which room is assigned to you and the room was unlocked. When I went in the TV was on. I paid $149 for one night.
