I booked this hotel based on the pictures show on your site, in no way is this a true representation. I left 4 A4 pages of complaint for the manager to address. I asked the staff if there were other rooms which had been refurbished they said they did not know. Dining room closed for refurbishment, no micro wave provided in room to heat up any food. Staff unfriendly accept fir two Jamie who booked me in and Alice on duty Satutday as I left. Staff on Friday simple could not inderstand spoken English, I was trying to point out a safety issue. He kept saying cleaning staff deal with this, I only reception. Totally unacceptable not to be able to converse with guest. No other staff member for the entire week, spoke to me not even to say good morning. Never stay there again, very dirty and grimy

There was no parking, reception suggested Wilson’s car park at about $40+ per night. Didn’t stay at hotel due to this & it looked like renovations were occurring as we drove past.
