I think there are 2 sides to this hotel which might explain the variety of comments. We got a good deal through Wotif ($135)so for what we paid it was very fair but we were in the "superior" rooms and whilst the room has been renovated this is cosmetic and our bathroom really did need some work and is in need of modernising. I didn't see the Horizon rooms but there does seem to be a big difference between these which have been completley renovated and our rooms. I accept there is also a huge price difference so I guess you get what you pay for. Reception is impressive, location is very good, staff were helpful and pleasant, pool area very nice and relaxing just consider that if you book a a superior room it may not be quite what you are expecting
