convenient location WiFi is very poor, next to useless. It should not be advertised as a feature if it is this bad as it annoys people like me that rely on this service for business purposes. It makes the difference to me staying there again.

East access to the places that I want to access. Friendly staffs, and a supermarket across the road for my needs (I used to cook my whole group when I stay in Macleay Hotel). Positive responses from the staff for my enquiries.

I had the biggest courtyard imaginable so that was nice. The location is great. Supermarket across the road. Cafes and restaurants close by too. Staff are great, really friendly. Rooms are a little outdated. Bed not great, TV on blink and no pay TV channels.
