Staff were lovely, breakfast was cold, so $50 for 2 people was a bit steep... ordered ice for our room, and it never arrived, the tea coffee sugar milk etc were ever replaced so we kept running out and had to request more daily... the best thing about the hotel were the staff and the lovely comfortable beds...

Room was nice, we had a bad experience upon arrival where the concierge was nowhere to be found at 2am. After flight cancellations and a 3 hour drive from Sydney the last thing we needed was to be locked out of our hotel at that hour of the morning. The staff member was in the office and couldn't hear the doorbell, phone or us knocking pretty hard. Everything else was fine. Room was nice, shower layout is interesting splashing water all over the bathroom.
