    Location is great and staff were helpful.

    The water bottles on bedside tables were mistaken for complimentry so suggest they be placed in with bar fridge if to be charged to guests.

    Only 30 min of free Internet and I would get disconnected after only 15 min. If you mentioned Internet problems to desk, they would gladly give you 30 more minutes.

    The location

    The air conditioner wasn't working in our room staff didn't seem to care

    the staff were absolutely amazing especially the assistant manager

    we had a few issues the first room smelled of sewage and we were moved with no problems however the following day we were woken at 7am to renevation work being carried out on the floor above, after complaing we were very impressed with the staffs handling of the complaint however it does not detract from the fact that this hotel has 5 star staff service but i would have to say for the dated features and the rooms ie broken plug sockets stains on carpets etc and general overall state this is not worth the money it commands nore its 4 star rating

    Insufficient staff at checkout 17 people in line to check out by one person was inefficient

    The location was brilliant. The staff were fantastic..so helpful and friendly.

    When I arrived I was given a room in the old wing but it was too cold for me, I was moved to new wing. So, this would have been a problem for me (if I had not been moved)..not being able to control the temperature in my room.

    *Room service Menu and Food was excellent

    The morning we left (Last Sunday Morning December 9) the power was off in our room. You were unable to flush the toilet, put on makeup because it was too dark to see.

    Location and breakfast.``

    You can't say what you didn't like without complaining. You people just do not want the truth. 8/5/12 around 9.30am Again the "service" desk on departure STINKS. I had a 50 dollar free voucher issued to me on Menzies initiative. I used it to buy two breakfasts for $42. The young girl on the desk tried to get me to pay for the breakfasts, even though her screen, as it turned out, showed the voucher credit. Was this sloppy or was it shady practice? Why is an "error always in favour of the provider? The girl did not apologise, simply said, oh, yeah. They are all over you on arrival and all turned off when you go. AND they want a surcharge on a credit card – only on check out, not on booking. You won't publish this but DO TELL THEM!

    Very friendly,accommodating staff.Our room was made available to us before 07am which was well appreciated as our flight from the uk arrived 05am after a long 39 hour trip.The hotel is ideally situated for a trip to sydney.

    As our stay was only brief we did`nt use any of the facilities so cannot comment on any of these.

    The one thing I liked about my room was the way shower taps did not fit against the wall. The tub was all so so long that I had to double my leg up to fit in the bathtub. 1500Mm and I'm 1800mm long. Parking was great! Elevators were great! I liked the price so much I will stay somewhere else that is better value.

  • Group of friends

    Was not impressed that the option of a smokin room was given but upon check in was informed it was a no smoking hotel! Bit misleading ! Would have booked elsewhere! The room was not clean and had a foul smell and the kitchenware was Horribly dirty! Would not stay here again!

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Great location centrally located and accommodation reasonably priced. The room was spacious.

    The television was small my lap top screen was bigger. The room service/restaurant prices seemed high compared to other hotels in the area. The bathroom seemed a little dated and small.

    Location, location, location

    We got disturbed 3 times for "wake up calls" that we did not book. Once by telephone, the second my clock alarm (we did not set) and third by a staff knocking on our room door. All in one morning!! Poor performance!

  • Single

    The service by the dark skinned concierge lady absolutely made the experience better at the hotel. Location gets 5 stars too.

    May be slightly dated and a light refurbishment may help appearance (removal of wallpaper etc, very light improvements will make the hotel improve a lot). Otherwise nothing in particular.
