Spent 3 nights here with our friends. We were delighted to see that free wifi was on offer to guests. Upon enquiring were told that it was free for 1 hour for the duration of your stay - uh??? That means that one nights stay equals 1 hr free, 3 nights equals 1 hr free - bit unfair!
Despite this our stay was pleasant, our room was clean - nothing special. We used the Guest Laundry to catch up with 3 weeks of washing which was very handy, as was the iron and ironing board in the room.
We didn't eat at the Red Ochre attached to the hotel which offered discount to guests seated before 7 pm with prior booking before 6 pm. We tried to book early but were told first available table was 8pm (outside offer zone). This was rubbish as we looked down into the restaurant frequently during the evening to see empty tables. Subsequent nights we bought a cooked chicken and salad from Woolworths and sat outside the room on the bench/tables provided. Two very pleasant evenings were spent this way.
The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. Location good, right on Todd Mall and surrounding shops. Secure undercover parking.
