“Average Hotel Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The venue works for larger business meetings as it also caters for weddings. The food is excellent, BUT, the accommodation lacks refinement. My room had a king size bed, but really not comfortable. Seemed like an over used mattress. The venue is in need of maintenance and paint. Some plug sockets did not work, TV did not have remote on/off - so had to get out of bed to switch off. The last night we had no hot water. The catering however was excellent throughout. The proximity to Lanseria Airport should count positively to the venue, but the security of the area is to be verified.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms 14 - 16 are very large.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I really didn't like much about this hotel, I was part of a conference group but I was fortunate I could step away for a couple of days to catch up. There has to be some investment to "spruce" the place up. I was allocated the "honeymoon suite", I think to be fair, this place has its own audience and some of my colleagues really enjoyed it. I was ready to leave as soon as I walked into the room, it is old and uninspiring, the smell in the bathroom is unbearable, i understand about the sceptic tank and all. Flies were dying all around the room, it was just awful and again this is not really the hotel's fault, it is really an establishment that is in the thick of nature, so there has to be sharing of space and resources with other species, I just didn't appreciate. The conference room was dull and outdated and it is really a very long drive to be this disappointed, I think there could be some investment in the decor. I liked the dining hall though, it looks fresher than the rest of the establishment. There is a lot wrong here, it is not terrible, I must say but I just wanted to run back to my car immediately I walked into the place and I couldn't wait to leave.
