The rooms were good for a family and although old fashioned well appointed and solid. However the pool was unusable, a problem in 37 degree heat, because it was filthy and had ducks swimming around in it. Certainly not good enough for a regional hotel charging almost 300 a night.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We're very sorry that the pool experience let you down. As you're aware it was an extremely hot long weekend with an average of 36 degrees & the pool was a popular spot to escape the heat. Our maintenance team will ensure the pool is up to our usual high standards in future. Sadly the ducks must have been looking for water which has become scarce with the drought in the region - again we apologise that this impacted on your stay. We really appreciate you taking the time to draw this to our attention. Thank you.

Unfortunately I was underwhelmed. On arrival I was told that there was no booking in my name. I booked 2 rooms in March via Wotif. This booking was for 2 nights for work for myself and a colleague. No apology for losing the booking & luckily I had a printed confirmation to show to prove I had booked. When rooms were eventually allocated they were 2 of the oldest, rundown basically awful rooms in the place. Another work colleague was also staying at the Powerhouse (and had only booked a few days ago) and was provided a newly renovated room and was charged $20 a night less. Whilst the common areas were lovely, the restaurant and bar staff charming and the sweet Irish girl that cleaned my room had the old room sparkling clean, I left feeling disappointed given that I have stayed at the Powerhouse several times. I trust all the rooms will be renovated soon, my booking will not be lost next time and perhaps "I am so sorry" would have been nice too.

Thank you for taking the time to not only give feedback but also for personally discussing with our General Manager when he phoned. We sincerely apologise for the mishap with the bookings & I'm sorry our staff didn't express this at the time. This was an error on our behalf & we're so sorry you didn't get to stay in a new room. As discussed we will certainly ensure you enjoy a beautiful new room on your next visit - it's the least we can do to hopefully rectify your most recent experience.
