From Friday to Sunday is a big party on the roof, which is really loud. The kitchen is all right and the staff is... More

Okay, I haven't stayed in the accommodation but I have visited the pub on the ground floor, which was okay, but nothing fantastic. I came here once to check the place out, and to have a drink, and I can't say that it really attracted me all that much. Okay, they did have a one way window in the guys... More

We stayed the night we had an event on at Next Level (1 floor up). Used for getting ready and to sleep afterwards. We had a great function and the event staff we tops. Being able to sleep in the room afterwards was a problem due to noise

When booking the site says it's an entertainment venue and may be noisy so we packed ear plugs. What they don't tell you is that the venue is in fact a nightclub. It's directly above your room, there's minimal soundproofing and the club is open to 0300. The ear plugs don't cut it and I think their statement is very... More

Through no fault of the hotels, Expedia.com.au falsely advertised the hotel as a last minute special. It was too good to be true. I arrived and was informed the private room with ensuite bathroom I booked was in fact a single bed in a 10 bed dorm. The owner or manager did nothing but blame Expedia instead of offering a...
