I stayed here for one night before having to drive off to Brisbane for a mid night flight... that said, I spent about 9 hours in that room... room is clean, it has a tv and a small fridge (mini bar) ..there is ample space for your luggage and the wardrobe is an open one.. (no doors)
Bed was comfortable. Aircon worked perfectly and it is in the centre of town. There is no microwave oven but there is a supermarket not far to drive to where you can just get some food like a ready cooked chicken and some salad for dinner if you have to.
There is an underground parking. it isnt secured off ( no boom gates) but at least it is underground and away from the street parking.
The only thing I have problem with that there was no body wash in their soap dispenser and they do not provide mini bottles like normal hotels. and the water pressure is just TERRIBLE !!!!!! it was hard to have even a 25% decent wash... there was no pressure and was worse than the water coming out of the tap in the sink where you wash your hands... so if you need a good shower, you may just have to try and use the lower tap (the ones that is used for the bathtub) or just try and wet yourself then go home and have a proper shower later...
That said. the receptionist was courteous, it is manned 24 hours and the place is clean and new with parking. There is no gym or pool facilities either... so if you want to have a swim, you will have to book at another hotel...
