Every thing was great the room large and clean, tea coffee wonderful thick towels, bed and pillows looked great and a fantastic nights sleep was... More

I've stayed at this property now maybe 6 or 7 times, I don't really keep track. What I do keep track is of the service standards and what this hotel does is what sets it apart. Sure it is no 5 star W or Hilton but it is a solid performer that is comfortable, consistent and reliable. Every time I... More

We stayed here during the Cadel Evans Road Race in the Executive room and were impressed on the space the room had. The room was big, clean, that bathroom was huge! There were tea and coffee facilities as well in the room. We were a bit worried there wouldn't be enough parking due to the big event but were pleasantly... More

We booked a one bedroom apartment but were a little disappointed with the view and tiny balcony. The living area and bedroom were fine, we just wanted to sit out on the balcony and relax after two 9 hour days of driving. We were moved without any drama to a two bedroom apartment on a higher level (Thanks Matthew). Fantastic... More

Suite on the first floor was wonderful, so much space; had everything and a Balcony with a sea view. The Suite was spotless and had everything in the kitchen. Parking was excellent. The Restaurant was fantastic, still thinking of the Crayfish and steak dinner, the best I have ever tasted. The bar area was a great place to relax. Staff... More

The superior room at this motel is extremely small for its very big price.Do not stay here expecting value for money--We were looking forward to spending the night here and decided to pay extra but we were so disappointed.

The welcome at Reception was terrible. I think the male receptionist just wanted to go home, no smile, no eye contact etc. Check out was simple and took 2 seconds, didn't ask how our stay was...More interested in if we used the mini bar. Bed was comfortable, room was clean but dated.

I stayed here several non-consecutive nights over a few weeks because of work. I stayed in different rooms. The economy rooms are simple, but has everything you need (don't expect anything fancy). Some were a bit out dated. However on my last stay, I stayed in an executive room. The room was big, nice and new. I'd never expect this... More
