We chose this hotel for an overnight stay in Armidale because it was rated No 1 on Trip Advisor. How disappointing. We had just given up a stay at a resort hotel on the coast, as our travel plans had changed because of road closures in the floods. We paid 189 dollars for an ordinary room, much more than we have paid in city and coastal hotels with better ambience. The room had been refurbished but it still felt like an overnight stop in a motel that we couldn't wait to leave. The main restaurant was also overpriced, and so was the tapas in the bar, but we were saved by the quality of the service and the tastiness of the food. There was one waiter serving the bar, the tapas, the main dining room and room service. Luckily we were not in a hurry and he was most helpful and efficient. We won't be staying here again.
