Unreasonable parking fees $25, not beeing told about parking fees when booked. Charged extra $8.39 to my credit card without explanation. No receipt was given or even offered. The male receptionist better trained (when i checked in and then checked out) in dealing with Non Anglo clients/customers. I wish to be given the outcome of the above notes

Unfortunately as you have not provided your name I am unable to investigate this to rectify. Can you please make contact with our Front Office Management team on 4224 3111 to assist in rectifying.

Nice room and friendly staff- the walls are very thin however, allowing you to hear noise in adjacent rooms, which impacts on sleep during the night

The room was a good size with lovely views. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. No minibar in the room and no hairdryer was a negative.

Hi Anonymous, We appreciate your feedback. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Mini bar has been removed from our guest rooms, although it is stated on our in room menu that Mini Bar items are available through in room dining. Apologies that there was no hair dryer in your room, this is a feature that we do provide complimentary to our guests. Rest assured I will investigate this to ensure it is rectified. Kind Regards, Vanessa Borg Guest Relations Executive
