Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Overpriced, deceptive property
Pretty disappointing and overpriced stay. No daily room servicing as they property claim its due to COVID... Except there is no community transmission and its clearly a ploy to pocket more profit while still charging the same nightly rate. Witnessed the cleaner of another room post checkout not wearing any PPE, so obviously not concerned about COVID after the guests check out. Absence of room servicing was only advised after check in. Then there was the charge per night to use the fireplace (yes... You read correctly and again, only advised at check in) except if you're staying between June - August. Clearly the high cost per night is simply too little to cover the use of a fireplace that is plastered throughout their marketing pictures. Conveniently for the establishment, they insist on guests attending the breakfast room strictly between 8.30-9.00 am so you can sit there for 40 minutes while the serve on a first come first serve basis. Despite the in room guest guide stating that each room has WiFi, the don't and mobile reception is non existent. We were with telstra in room 6 and had no service at all. The outlook to the spa in the bathroom would be good if the plants in the outside courtyard weren't dead... But fairly consistent with other poorly maintained aspects of the property... Such as missing lights in the garden bollard lighting where we nearly fell down the stairs due to how poorly lit the area was to get to the car park. Avoid avoid avoid.
