Being a serviced apartment, the rooms are well equipped with a very comfortable bed and modern amenities, including an iPod dock and LCD TV. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need except for the food and condiments of course, but was enough for cooking.
Internet is not free though, and is very expensive - it's cheaper to buy a dongle and a package from Telstra to get 4G connections. Optus barely works inside parts of the hotel.
In addition, while the hotel has laundry facilities, this is also a central service and is charged per use, which is expensive. Each room does not have a laundry machine, making it difficult to clean your clothes at a reasonable price.
The swimming pool and fitness facilities are of good quality though - the pool is a 2 laned indoor 25 meter pool, making swimming very practical.
Overall, if you're looking for a place to stay, a very good choice despite the shortcomings.
