We were located on the top floor - there is no lift, so be aware. Décor very tired and in need of facelift. Basic's like "Hot" "Cold" missing off the taps. Bar staff were very "ho-hum" which may have accounted for the fact that there was only a handful of patrons - and that was a Saturday night with a... More

The linen was old and very thin. The bath was dirty, The toilet seat was very old, marked and scratched.The back entrance door (close to our room) needed repair and made an awful noise everytime someone went in and out. We were still in bed at 08.00 am and housekeeping opened our door.!!. The hotel notes say that housekeeping starts... More

This hotel has plenty of off street parking, an excellent gym. The restaurant has great food. While the decor is a little tired the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful and welcoming.

Stayed at this hotel with my gf in April for 2 nights. It has got a very good restaurant and in house bar. Food was good. Our room was with a view and it was comfortable. Staff was very polite and they have a large gym which we didn't use.

When I entered my room I directly saw that the interior had had its best days. The only way of heating the room was a portable electrical heater. It could handle the room but it's not what you would call professional. The sofa in the room had stains and was clearly not vacuumed in a long time. The bedspread was... More

I wouldn't pay good money to stay here. Just tired and dated. If you are just looking for an overnight place to sleep then it would do. Not a holiday stop but OK for an overnight traveller. Check in and check out was super quick. Won't stay again however.

Facilities were average, shabby and run-down in places. We stayed three nights, no one showed us our room, offered or advised regarding anything or took a welcoming interest in our stay. We arrived the day before Anzac Day and were told there was no room service due to public holiday which meant we did not have any room service for... More
