I stayed one night here and had a nice, clean and comfortable room, with a fantastic view of the Chinese Gardens. The bathroom needed an update, but it was clean. The staff were friendly enough and there was no wait time to check-in or check-out.

Disappointed with standard of room - unironed sheets and dirty, shabby chairs. The showers tiles need either replacing or given a proper scrub.
The location is fine. The front office staff were polite and the restaurant staff very helpful.

I did not require service therefore cannot comment on service.
I did not see value for the price i had paid for the overnight stay. I have stayed in similar rooms in the city for under $200 on a weeknight especially then when the rates are better than the weekend.
For the price i paid and for what was offered i would rate my stay as average.
If i was charged approx $200 for my overnite stay i would have rated my stay as excellent.
I chose this room above the cheaper rooms you have on offer but the is no better than other rooms i have stayed in other hotels on there special midweek rates. I simply chose to stay in your hotel as it was convenient as i had to attend a conference in one of your rooms the next morning.

The room overlooked the Entertainment Centre and was clean and quite. Bathroom was large. Bed was a bit hard. Disappointing pillows, we asked for replacements from the pillow menu and received one, not the requested two. Staff were friendly and eager to please.
The breakfast buffet was very nice with a healthy muesli, fresh fruit, tinned fruit and the usual eggs, bacon, sausages etc. I had dinner across the road at the Holiday Inn and enjoyed a great steak sandwich and Little Creatures beer for $24.

Stayed for work and it provided a central location to the convention centre. Room was very basic, small but clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly and room service food was pretty good - from attached restaurant, which was also a nice place for a drinks after meetings. We used the hotel to host our meetings. Conference facilities were good for our group of 60, but not good for much more than that. Hotel rates are a bit pricey though considering the other options nearby.
