We booked junior suite. The rooms were not very clean. The pool area is slippery and dangerous without any proper signage. I hurt my arm by slipping into the pool ( I know it was raining but there should have been proper signage) The complimentary breakfast was average The only good about this hotel is its proximity to beach Would...

A mystery booking led us to the Chiefly where we found a cockroach in our park view room. Staff were courteous and apologetic when shown a photo of my discovery. We were promptly relocated to another room where we found the seal on the fridge was broken. By this stage we were unimpressed. A phone call to reception, more apologetic... More

We got the family Jambero package. Tickets we ready for us when we arrived and later that evening check in was quick and easy. The room was fantastic, plenty of room for 4 people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back again next year.

The hotel and rooms are functional and clean but nothing special. Parking onsite is convenient and needed considering the hotel location. All in all this is a reasonable hotel for a short business stay but I wouldn't stay more than a few nights.

Have stayed with the Chifley since it opened and after initial teething problems on the whole it is a great place to stay when on business. The restaurant is not open on Sunday nights but room service is good.

We did not need to travel very far for a night without kids, My husband and I escaped for a night away before the Christmas Frenzy began, the accommodation and breakfast were great, we would stay here again for sure. The location is excellent, walking distance to the beach, the shop and lots of different restaurants.

Have stayed at the Chifley a lot over the past 6 months. Very happy with the motel apart from the constant issues with the lifts and the boom gates to the car park not working. When staying on the upper floors, it can sometimes take a long time (10mins) for the lifts to arrive which is very frustrating. If I... More

The beds could be better, too hard. There was no key to the balcony and an empty can rolled around on it all night keeping us awake which was very annoying. The cleaners should have disposed of the can so obviously not doing their job properly. The little things count.

If you are above the 3rd floor there is no free wifi. My in room dinner was cold and I asked for a coke and got a pepsi - these are not interchangeable. Apart from the above minor issues - the room was clean, neat and quiet. It had everything I needed. Location good too.
