We booked into this hotel as we had used it once before when it was owned by another Hotel group. It was a good priced room within our budget as we were staying in the City for a Food Festival we wanted to visit. We did arrive a little early and were told our room was not yet ready but would be so within 30 mins. We waited an hour before it was ready. We decided to wait and have a drink or coffee from the cafe/bar but were unable to do so as there was some mechanical issue. So, we just waited by the drafty entry way. We had already parked our car and when we were finally able to went to our room. We found the room to be clean and comfortable. As there were 2 adults and 1 child we found that we had only been provided with 2 towels for the bathroom. Beds were 1 queen and 1 single. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom clean. The shower head was just awful though and it was very misty and the spray went everywhere. The room had a great view over the river towards South bank and we certainly enjoyed this later in the evening. The hotel is close to the centre of the CBD and within easy walking distance of food and local services. The Treasury Casino is directly across the road. Whilst there were a couple of things that irked me overall the room was fine for 1 night and it was within our weekend budget. I would stay there again as it is conveniently located.
