I am sorry to hear that your stay was not an ideal experience. I have passed your concerns on to our housekeeping and maintenance managers and would like to inform you that we have heard out guests and our hotel is currently planning renovations for all the rooms. I hope that we can welcome you back once it has been freshly renovated.

The room was in need of a make over. Especially the bathroom but you get what you pay for though i have stayed in 5 star hotels in syd that weren't as clean. The underneath parking was weird!

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are currently undergoing renovations to the hotel including a full refurbishment of the rooms. The building is of an older style where parking was not a priority and unfortunately the pillars that take up a large portion of the parking area are structural and cannot be moved or removed. We do have some above ground parking but it is first come first serve. I hope that we can welcome you back once the hotel has been freshly renovated.

Hotel was close and convenient but expected a bit more for my money. Stains on the carpet, old bathroom, iron mark on the desk, cupboards woth doors that didnt close properly and no snack bar. I came to have a nice night away from the kids with breakfast in bed, but the breakfast was average as well.

The only real issue was condition - bit dated and rough around the edges, however the bed was awesome, staff were great, large room with nice view of the city, breakfast was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone.

Staff at front desk were fantastic, However upon entering our room we noticed the fridge door open with glass shattered all over the floor. The air con was not working which made the room fairly uncomfortable even with the heater turned off. Overall the staff are the real mvp’s in this situation. Room was rather disappointing

Simple and clean room- a bit scruffy round the edges. Staff were very helpful and kind, helping me manage my parking needs during my family mrmber’s surgery at nearby hospital.
