“ROMANTIC BREAK AWAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

What a beautiful weekend we had at the Executive Inn. The rooms are lovely & clean. And a special mention of the restaurant, Hobarts! Wow, what a wonderful dining experience! Beautiful staff and a beautiful meal. The atmosphere was amazing. Can't wait to go back....

Too far from anything to be worth the price they charge. Better hotels downtown at the same price. Wests wasn't that great either. There is no mention of how far from the city is on the website. Room service menu is not what I would expect of a four star hotel.

A stop that was required for business, booked by my colleague, the room was very clean and spacious. Being part of a club, the restaurants are good, Mexican a relaxing meal. Breakfast hard to find, when there average meal and service not good.
Would I stay again, yes, now I know more about the services.

My fiance and I stayed here for one night when our footy team played the Knights, and we loved that it was only a 10-minute walk to the ground. We also liked that it joins onto Wests leagues club, so it was easy to meet up with friends for a few drinks before the game.
On the down side... the room was very small - definitely not worth the money we paid! Our "garden view" room on the 2nd floor actually had a view of the bottle shop next door. The bed was too soft (which didn't really bother me) but my fiance woke up with a sore back, shoulders, and neck. There were lots of tiny dead bugs on the window sill, and the bath tub had mould around it.
Overall though, it was a pleasant stay.
