Stayed with one friend for two nights for an architectural site visit, coming from Sydney. Unfortunately the only reason I rate the service 3/5 is because I was constantly hassled to submit the OurDeal voucher I required for my stay: fair enough, but it required a lot of correspondance with family in Sydney at less than ideal hours. The voucher was e-mailed through and I was still told it was not received. Having a CC of the e-mail, I showed it to the front desk who confirmed the email was correct and yet it had not gone through, despite going through to my own email. Obviously there are some email issues or something of the like.
Other than that, which was a minor blemish on an otherwise great trip, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Great value for money (using the voucher) which included free breakfast, which was great. The surrounds are quiet despite being near a major road, facilities good and really nothing else to say. 10 minute tram ride to the CBD, and the tram stops about 100m from the hotel. Would definitely recommend.
