We booked this hotel and cheap it was not. We knew the location - The Rocks and on arrival we were sadly disappointed by the room and general appearance of the hotel. Here was a hotel with a very good location, the entrance to the hotel was drab coloured and no endearing features at all. The staff were very good couldn't fault them at all. During the evening when it was time to eat there were no facilities to eat an evening meal we had to go out looking for somewhere, the room lacked lustre too! Very basic but only just adequate, not what we expected for the price!
Perhaps we may suggest that Holiday Inn make something of the entrance to this hotel it has all the prospects of being made very nice and welcoming just s few plants to soften the quite typically 'Australian' drab colour scheme, try a drop of light coloured paint, add a few plants, pictures etc. We certainly won't be staying there again through choice.
