I arranged a meeting with a business colleague at the Maryborough hotel. I believed the establishment to be of reputable standards. When I walked in the door I my first impression was that I would be kept waiting as three members of staff were on phones in reception, and another was rummaging through paperwork while a line of about 6 people were waiting to be seen to. I asked a member of staff, whom, I believed to be free as she had stopped talking on the phone, where a certain area in the hotel was, she started another phone conversation and then just pointed to a door with a not very pleasant tone.
When eventually found where I was going (I did have to ask another member of staff, who was helpful) I sat down to eat with only to hear very loud sounds of electrical tools coming from directly overhead. These went on intermittently throughout the meal. I understand that work needs to take place, but surely this room was not being used for dinners throughout the entire day, and perhaps work could have been timed more appropriately.
On the other hand, the food was nice and the staff in the restaurant were friendly.
This was my first visit to this hotel and I'm not sure if I will return or would recommend. More for the initial 'welcome' at reception rather than the works being carried out.
