The room was great because it was unusually spacious and had had plenty of room for everything; I hate feeling squeezed into a cupboard. The restaurant and bar were very good (for the level of the hotel) and provided good in-room meals and (best of all) a take-away breakfast, which was wonderful for rushed mornings. Free onsite parking and free... More

First the pluses: generally friendly service, good breakfast and good location. Now the negatives: the heater on a timer went on at 1 am waking us up in thirty degree room at 2am. We managed to turn it off but could not alter the timer. We spoke to the duty manager before breakfast, later that same morning and he said... More

My partner and I chose this motel because it was close to Costa Hall where we were going to a concert. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed including free wifi although the only problem we found was the walls were paper thin! The location was was terrific right on the foreshore and walking distance into... More

The chifley is a favourite of mine as you can book in quite late which is convenient as there is few motels any further into the city that even have a vacancy let alone affordable. The rooms are slightly cramped and somewhat under lit which is a little unexpected for the quality of the restaurant and office. Most rooms could... More

Very good service. Very clean, next to the shore and not too far from the centre. Rooms at the back are good, if a little dated, but clean and comfortable. Did not eat at the restaurant, but it looked very pleasant.

Rooms ok a little aged bit most have that cosy feel to them. Slightly away from main cbd but a lovely walk to work. Friendly helpful staff. Nice views from the restaurant and really lovely food at the black salt restaurant.
