The mattress was hard. I woke at 3.00am with the sorest hip snd lower back pain. I won’t stay with you again unless you can offer soft mattresses for a decent night sleep. That’s what I’m paying for.

The first night of my stay there was no air conditioning which made the night very uncomfortable. Further to this, there was Netflix advertised on the tv but there wasn’t actually any working.

This was a great place that exceeded my expectations for the price I paid. Attractive appearance and spacious room. initial thoughts were that the room was very clean, though later noticed some of the detail cleaning hadn’t occurred. Staff were friendly and attentive. It was a great location.

The location was great for us, an easy walk across the bridge to Southbank. The room was comfortable but bathroom a bit on the small side. The building works opposite were not a problem to us, in fact we found it interesting. We were on the 13th floor and loved the view across the river. We have stayed before and will stay again.

Uncomfortable beds however relatively clean. Service was bland, lifts broken, charged twice as much to park as the carpark down the road.

It would have been nice to have a small table and chairs in the room. The little computer desk isn’t big enough. Location of this property is great. Very close to cbd

Staff were great, however the building is in desperate need of a renovation.
