Was only here for one night only thankfully. Rooms are dreary and very small with too much dark furniture. Tried to let some light in but when I tried to raise the brown blind I ended up covered in dust! Shower area was good. Breakfast was served in a makeshift characterless room. Breakfast itself was quite good but could not... More

Reception are very friendly and helpful, there is no car parking and no restaurant for dinner. The rooms are satisfactory, not sure I would stay here again. There are restaurants within walking distance

Stayed there on a business trip. Positives - location, smiles at the front desk, ok room with lots of storage. Negatives - bad cleaning of rooms, website and tv in reception says they have a restaurant/cafe which is not right, pool underground not heated(very cold).

Stayed here one night in a newly outfitted room which was comfortable and well appointed, albeit a bit small, but good for the rate I was charged which included breakfast. Be aware that the public areas - hallways, lifts, foyer etc) are not air conditioned...so in summer you walk from your air conditioned room out into a hot stuffy hallway.... More

Stayed here for a weekend between work. Parking is a difficulty with there only being metered parking, and you pay to park in the hotels parking dock removed from the main building itself. it was hard for us with a work van and trailer. Check in was smooth, the lady was helpful in recommending local eateries. The hallways and lobby... More

Very comfortable and clean. The shower was so good I didn't want to get out. Reasonably priced and included continental breakfast. I paid an extra $8 for a cooked breakfast which was good. There is no onsite parking which is annoying but there is designated parking nearby for $15 per night. Good position in the city and only one block... More

I have just had a 9 day stay at the Chiefly Plaza and have nothing but praise for the Shona and the other lovely ladies at Reception. Nothing was too much trouble. Late check in (11pm) and the request for more coat hangers was responded to in minutes, meaning I could unpack my bag before I went to bed. Yes,... More

Stayed at the Chifley for 4 nights. What can I say other than its not bad at all. Check in was the most painless at a hotel I have had in ages. Just confirming my credit card details. Then up to my room 415. Ignore the dated lifts etc. The room is a pleasant surprise. Nicely renovated and comfortable. Although... More
