Stayed there on Saturday night after an exhausting day, having caught a 6am flight that morning and driving over 160km that day. The bed felt comfortable and I was looking forward to a good night's sleep before flying back on Sunday. Alas, this was not to be ....... the lift kept operating past midnight even though a sign states that it stops operating after 11pm. Tried to sleep with a pillow over my head but I could still hear the lift screeching and clunking!!! Couldn't sleep till about 2am and was awoken at about 6am by ..... wait for it ..... the lift!!!!!
When booking I requested for a room away from the lift as I read a previous review. I was given a room 3 doors away but the lift noise was still a shocker. In the morning, all blurry eyed, I spoke politely to the receptionist about the noise. He was most unhelpful, All he could say was "Sorry, I'll make a note to put you further away next time." I suggested to him that at the very least I should be shouted the $10 breakfast, given what I had to put up with last night. Again he just said, "Sorry". He even wanted to charge me the 3% credit card surcharge for my $10 breakfast ..... WHAT!!! Terrible customer relations! I booked this hotel as I required on-site parking. If on a business trip, you'll need a good night's sleep, so this hotel won't be suitable.
