Visited website and thought 'Queen Victorian' room looked perfect. Booked direct.
Perfect location as we wanted to be easy walking distance from Centennial Parklands.
Images on website should be viewed as 'generic' rather than 'specific'. Room we were given at first (no 9) was classed as 'queen' because it had a queen size bed...it certainly was NOT spacious, and we had cockroaches in the room (large gaps under doors, and around window screens). When I complained, we were offered a 'discounted upgrade' to a King size room (no 2) which actually looked like the images for a 'queen' room...
Bathroom was still very small with wide gaps around (window) screen...so yes, got another cockroach!
This Hotel has great potential and is currently being renovated, so definitely worth a look when renovations are complete.
Request a quiet room, as some at the front of the building are noisy and very bright from outside lights.
Buffet breakfast each morning was pleasant, but being served in the Atrium due to renovations.
Coffee not great!
It is at the end of Queen St, just metres from Oxford St, so very convenient to transport.
