A holding fee was charged to my credit card to cover the "mini bar" - there was no mini bar! The room was very noisy. I was woken at 6.30am by the people next door packing up and by a motor running somewhere? I had breakfast in the hotel restaurant and waited 45 minutes for muesli that only arrived after I asked why it was taking so long.

Loved the property but there were no hot chocolate or milo satchets in the room for kids. Loved the food at Unwind restaurant.

Staff and rooms always clean. The restaurant needs an upgrade and the food isn't the greatest. Would be amazing too if the facility had a gymnasium. No hotel in Bunbury has their own gym!

I was impressed that on check in i requested a meeting room for the rest of the day and the following day, and that I could access that room within minutes and continue to work, appreciate this can not always be done due to availability. the other thing that impressed me was the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff

There was a problem when the one working elevator stopped working. It suggested that the staff need to update the emergency procedures at the hotel. Patrons were unable to use the emergency doors which were locked, and were stuck in the stair well for about 20 minutes. If this had been a medical or fire emergency the emergency services would have been unable to access the upper floors.

There was a few minor touches that weren't finished off that was disappointing and access to our room was generally difficult.
