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

Arrived at 10 but as they were short staffed were unable to get in into our room until 12.30 .However they kept us informed on the progress through out. Great service when we had tea.

3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Booked a family room, and expected it to be a decent sized room. But it was the size of my bedroom at home, felt a bit suffocating. The car parking was an issue, definitely not enough car parks for the size of the hotel and if you paid for parking you didn’t necessarily have a spot. Also we ordered room service and my club sandwich looked like it had been thrown agains a wall and came with packet chips/crisps and not hot chips. For the price ($21), it was a bit embarrassing. I wouldn’t have served it. The tv also had closed caption permanently turned on and no way to turn it off which was a bit annoying. But the place was clean, we were only there for one night and the staff were super friendly. However I wouldn’t stay there again.
