Stayed in room 47 for 3 nights with my partner. We were both shocked at how run down and unclean the suite seemed. I nearly cried when i walked in as this trip was a present to my boyfriend and we had stayed in some amazing accommodation in Launceston and Coles Bay just prior.
The entire suite is in desperate need of love and attention---grotty ceilings in the downstairs bathroom; scuff marks on curtains, walls and blinds; dirt behind fridge and on floors; noticeable stains on carpets. The bed in the main bedroom was too short to accommodate us comfortably (we are not even excessively tall!). There is also nowhere to comfortably sit in the lounge room- some old tatty chairs. My boyfriend chose to sit on the floor as the sofa was so uncomfortable. The "gym" shouldn't be advertised as one since it comprises of a few pieces of old cardio equipment thrown into the sauna & outdoor bathroom area. Put it this way, if you were leaving a rental property in this state, you wouldn't get your bond back!
The positives: the suite is spacious if you are travelling with a family; the pool is lovely; most staff were very friendly and helpful; the room service dinner we ate was delicious; free parking is handy; downstairs shower was good (upstairs one was unusable due to poor water pressure).
Honestly, would not stay here again or recommend to anybody unless a major refurb is completed to address the above issues.
