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

Sorry only good thing to say was shower had great water pressure. Dark and dingy room, grubby furniture, old stain & tired towels. Depressing room even for short stay.Very over priced. Noisy guests next door morning and night .Needless to say will never stay here or with this chain again.

As a traveling rep ive stayed in plenty of hotels...this is one of the worst. Outdated rooms, awful service and a decidedly average restaurant (still hadnt been acknowledged after waiting 20min!). This hotel is part of a global rewards system called choice privileges....none of the 3 staff behind the counter knew what to do with my card despite the fact... More

We have stayed at this Hotel every year for the past few years for at least one w/e. It used to be pleasant with reasonable accommodation (if you booked the right rooms, not all as good as each other!). However it has deteriorated substantially in the last year. Despite booking mulitiple rooms well in advance as we do every year... More
