Checkin or Checkout at the hotel needs a lot of work. Shame as the place is nice, and the Resturant and Brewery are great. The room was nice, bit with the winds, the doors rattled all night, when I mentioned it to reception they had no comment, apart from saying it happens at their home......yep, but I paid a room...

Dear Craig A Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your recent stay with us at the Chifley Doveton. It appears that our rooms division is well short of meeting your expectations, your point raised about doors rattling in the wind is unusual at Chifley Doveton as we don't have any externally exposed guest room doors...

I stayed overnight at the Chifley this week as we had a work conference at the facility. The rooms are very nice, well appointed with comfortable beds, and very quiet. The breakfast was very good, and the service was excellent. The conference facilities were also very good, with all the IT facilities working as they should. Good place to stay... More

This is not a high class international hotel. It is however a clean and modern facility with very friendly staff. There is a bar and restaurant within the hotel, and all the usual suspects (Maccas, KFC, HJ's etc) around it including a Hogs Breath and a supermarket not too far away. I had issues with my corporate travel agent (they... More

I stayed here a few times with my job and I can't fault this hotel-the rooms are good, the wifi works, but their secret weapon is the pub downstairs-so good!!! They brew their own beer and there is a pizza oven camera so you can even watch your pizza cooking. If you don't fancy pizza the rest of the menu... More

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
