It's a pity the name Doveton is listed as it does this location no favors. This is a relatively new location with friendly and helpful staff. The food in the bar downstairs was very nice and reasonably priced, so much so, we went back just for dinner - ask for the calamari, it was delicious. We didn't need to use... More

Unfortunately the website is very misleading stating it has a ' fully equipped gym; spa and sauna.' This is in a totally separate building/business that is not in the hotel and there is also an extra charge to use it. It is not a feature of the hotel and should not be implied as being such. I was also unable... More

Had a great meal at the Coal creek Brewery which is part of the Chiffley hotel,great service and a large range of beers to choose from,the service was also excellent. Its a pity the restaurant isn't that well advertised on the main highway as i'm sure they would get a lot more customers.

Usually on business trips the best you can hope for is a lovely room & great service. They made an impression by providing an array of new magazines such as Vogue, Cosmo etc and also a hair straightener. It's the considerate details that impress that stand out. Keep it up!
