We got a great rate last minute on this property ( about $AU100 per night) and stayed 2 nights. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is good - lots of fruits, yogurts, etc, all sorts of hot food. The restaurant is also good value, the food very tasty, although it lacks a bit in atmosphere.
We had a disable access room ( must have been the only one left) and the toilet is in a strange location which means you can sit on the toilet and wash your hands at the same time. The bathroom door didnt quite close properly either. The room itself however, was huge. Nice view of the courtyard.
The hotel is in a great location - across the road from the Two Oceans Aquarium and walking distance to the whole V & A Waterfront area.
We would stay here again - our only gripe was that the wi-fi link in our room was weak. We found we got a faster link in the lobby and breakfast area.
