I didn’t like that it had no movies on demand, foxtel or anything to watch, ifyou wanted to stay in and watch something you needed to bring your on chrome cast device. Don’t advertise something that’s not there.

Parking lot is dark and feels insecure. No ammenities were open for most of my stay. Rooms were not serviced. A hidden tacky deposit was required in order to check in (wotif clearly does not condone this unscrupulous practice and doesn’t allow them to have the fee in the listing, so they sting you with it at checkin). When I provided feedback about the tacky deposit requirement, staff were combative and argumentative, confronting me in the lobby the next day about it. At checkout I was made to stand at reception for about 10 minutes while staff validated that the room was not destroyed and released my deposit. I’ve never been treated like such an unscrupulous character that someone had to validate that I left the room in an acceptable state. I’d say avoid this venue. It was all hassle with few positives. It’s essentially a caravan park experience with a paper thin facade of opulence that tears the second you look at it.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. It is disappointing to read that you did not have a pleasant stay. We would like to clarify that our car parks are well lit at night. Secondly, we would also like to clarify that the security room bond of $200 is clearly stated in the "Important information" section on the hotel page listed in wotif.com. Lastly, our normal hassle free check out process is to email you the invoice after the room is checked. However, you had insisted on the staff check your room immediately while you waited so that you could receive your refund immediately. We obliged your request and inspected your room quickly. Once again, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and we hope to ensure your next stay will be more memorable. Thank you for your custom and we look forward to welcoming you back to Atura in the near future.
