I would recommend the Woodroffe hotel for a short overnight stay or a weekend where you won't be in your room much. A little disclaimer to start with, I had booked two rooms on wotif with the condition of pay on arrival. I was then contacted by the hotel to pay immediately in full, and stated the claim on wotif, and they said they don't do that. I asked to check with my guests, but when I had not responded by monday the hotel simply charged the cards without authorisation. The rooms were mostly clean, though we did find some rubbish under a desk and bed and some stains on the carpets. Beds were adequate, an advertised king mattress was just two single beds pushed together, with no topper so you could feel the gap in between. Sheets and all linen was clean and of good quality. When we returned to our room at night the A/C was pumping out hot air, and the panel on the wall did nothing. We called service and were told the a/c is controlled by the whole building, and to open a window. All interactions with hotel staff were pleasant, and for a $10 fee per night I was able to park the day before safely and securely. Besides these points, we were happy with our stay, and were able to sleep with little disturbance from neighbour or hallway noise. The area is not so nice in the daytime, quite a few unfortunate homeless and little open on a sunday morning for breakfast, as the hotel food was not appealing to us, however it did look to be of good quality.

On-site parking ISNT included in the booking (costs and additional $20 for parking?!) and there is a lack of car parks around the area! Had to walk 1KM to get back to the hotel.

Unfortunately late check-out wasn’t available due to full booking. The reception is closed between 7pm and 8am. I found a hair dryer broken at night and couldn’t dry my hair.
