No recommendation for this place. The room that they gave us has a broken curtain and it took us almost half an hour before they gave us a room.

I did not like anything about the stay dirty filthy discusting rooms as for the TV old and ancient the toilet paper dispenser in bathroom holding together with a screw what a discrace its very iconic how your company majes money by charging top dollar to the consumer and in return your company gives crap to consumer I surely will not be back and not recommended to any person and finally if your cleaners are using somekind of bleach it surely stinks

The Hotel is a Pet friendly Hotel but you get charged extra for your dogs( per dog) also a bond which is fine but you can't leave your dogs unattended in your room. When your visiting form interstate or country, Thats means you can't go out for dinner, visit friends go sightsee or shopping basically can't do anything unless your dogs can go with you because under no circumstances can your dogs stay in the room with out you in the room . Dog friendly to this Hotel means they are allowed in the room. I Will never stay here again...

We liked that it was close to the city. We didn't like that they didn't have very good signage as to where the reception area was.

This is advertised as 3 stars - even the guy at reception said it is more like 1 star! There were old stains on the carpet, walls were dirty, frayed carpet, curtains had light coming through wear holes, louvered cupboard doors were grotty, large chunks of paint off bathroom door. I know it was cheaper but it was disgusting - how can this be advertised as 3 stars! Am cancelling my booking next week to stay somewhere else!
