Thank you for your review. We have temporarily disabled Foxtel in our hotel rooms throughout what has been a tough 6 months for everyone. We do have Fox Sports offered in the hotel bar. We do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise and we hope to see you again in the future. Warm regards, Demi Butler - Front Office Manager

Great position. Central to everything. The bed was comfy. Was disappointed that after 6 months stuck at home I thought by choosing a deluxe room I would at least get a view but all I got outside my window was a blank wall. It was also difficult to sleep because of an industrial hum outside my window. The overall room cleanliness was okay but the bedside light fittings had grime all over them and I didn’t like to touch them. The free bottle of wine was a nice touch but I don’t drink. Wasn’t a bad stay but also didn’t live it.
