I had room 28 which was clean and quite large,plenty of power points,a good tv... More

My room was a showing its age, but was clean and tidy. It had a spa in the corner with a shower above in the main room and a seperate toilet and basin. I would stay there again if fiven the opportunity. The food in restaurant was beautiful but a little over priced ($44 for steak).

This was an excellent room, we stayed with our dog on the journey from Newcastle to Brisbane and it was very nice, there was even a small piece of land to walk the dog around. We were near the front of the building but didn't have any disruption from road noise. The room was clean and functional and the decor... More

My goodness. It's been too long since I was last here that I actually thought it would be a good idea to try staying at this place. I somehow managed to end up in one of their I renovated rooms.

Hotel is in an ideal location for travellers, however, this makes for a fair bit of noise from trucks passing through - still, have stayed in places with a lot more noise. Lady on reception was friendly enough, but not overly. We stayed only one night - for $169 I don't know whether we would stay for more than that.... More
