Disappointed in the quality of the room for what I paid for it. Very basic furnishings. Big crack in wall near window. Needs sprucing up. Bed very comfy, though. Bathroom nice and clean.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Great to hear the price and proximity to the city were rated highly. We have just updated our hot water system and replaced a faulty unit so we're back on track to unlimited hot water 24 hours a day.

Close to CBD, perfect for family weekend

Pros: Comfortable room accomodating the whole family,
Cons: Easier to use heating that works
Location: Close to CBD and shopping.
Comfortable stay with a couple of issues that staff were more than happy to help with. Perfect family room.

Well if you book a fifth floor hotel room on a sat night and expect to sleep you won’t. The downstairs nightclub music goes through the whole building until 1am. The next room group came home at 530am and turned their own music on. No phone call answered at reception, went downstairs and found a security guard at 630am who shut them up. If it’s too loud I’m too old? No sorry. A building full of partying Millennials who were not smacked as kids don’t give a toss about other guests but themselves. Want to sleep, go somewhere else, want to party, great place to do that.
