Greeted by a friendly reception. Although she did not recognise my RPG benefits. The corridor from the lift to the room looked like a tired hotel.
Once in the room the refurb was ok. The bathroom is a real let down. Tip to hotel management - don't refurb a room and leave the bathroom - do the whole room.
As I arrived late I dined in the Bar & Grill. Not many diners and still the service was a little unattentive. Food was good.
Very amusing when I asked if they did affogato's. The waitress said yes, then the 3 staff had a long discussion behind the bar about if anyone knew what an affagato was! (What do I expect - it was Townsville)
The room aircon had to be turned off as it couldn't be programmed to any setting other than on and cold. (No I didn't complain to reception at 10pm)
Breakfast was ok- standard hotel buffet fare. When will hotels include real coffee with their already overpriced buffets???
Checkout was clinical. The reception seemed more interested to remind me that was there was a surcharge for credit cards.
