I am staying here for a conference, and this is my second night (Saturday), so I don't know about noise.
The standard room is large enough and it has a surprising large robe area instead of a wardrobe. The bathroom is reasonable, but the basin has a timed push tap which is awkward if you want to do anything, and takes ages to warm up. I assume this is a water saving device due to the propensity of drought in Australia. The down side to this feature is that it takes so long and so much water before you get warm water that you waste water getting it warm. The best thing to do is use it after a shower, when the water is already to the room.
The bed was not made, the pillows were where I left them and the blankets and cover simply pulled up and loosely tossed over the pillows.
Upon turning down the bed the night before, I had to brush dead bugs off the sheet.
The coffee table in the room is dangerously loose.
The power points don't operate when I plug in my lap top, but operate for the toaster. Don't know what's going on there, but it was very odd.
"Continental" breakfast is 3 packets of cereal and four slices of white bread.
Packets of butter and margarine are in the fridge, and I left them out of the fridge to soften while at the conference. When I returned they'd been thrown away and not replaced. Bizarre behaviour.
It felt as if everything is rushed and hurried, with only a cursory nod to room service of the most basic kind.
I have put the chain on the door each night. The bed is comfortable, the heating good, and I'd probably stay here again if I was attending a conference due to its location, but I'd bring my own breakfast supplies.
