The first thing to remember is that this is a 3 1/2 star hotel, 125 years old and undergoing continual upgrades to keep up with technology and customer needs. We were very happy with our room, it was clean, warm and we slept well. We didn't have a good view but this didn't bother us as we were out and about for most of the time. There is a gym, small pool and a spa which was a lovely way to start the day. 'Vics Bar' in the hotel is perfect for footy lovers, lots of footy decorations and two t.v's showing the games, as well as an eight ball table. It's within walking distance to the shops and many cafes and with the help of Siri on my iPhone we found places we had never heard of in the alleys. Locker hire in the foyer is $5 for 6 hours giving you somewhere to stash your bags after checkout. Take your towel up to the pool- we thought there might be some up there but there wasn't and had to do the bikini sneak through the hallways to our room.
