The room was clean. Wi Fi kept dropping out and, when we arrived, customer service at front desk was poor. Back gate to exit premises was broken and areas of the garden were overgrown.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about the Wifi dropping out, Telstra reported usage issues all throughout the city this past weekend. We will have our maintenance team tend to our gardens and give them some TLC. The back gate is kept locked for added security for our guests's vehicles and to avoid unecessary noise for our guests' and neighbours.
