Stayed in this hotel early this year 2008 to go to the Rod Stewart concert in Melbourne.
The view from the room was brick walls and the curtains and windows were filthy.
That first night we thought that maybe the people in the room next door were having a late night/early morning spa as we thought that we could hear the pump running.
After a nearly sleepless night because of this we were woken at six am next morning by the sound of furniture scraping on the floor in the 'room next door'.
Next night that bluddy noise from next door was keeping us awake again so I went to investigate.
It was the dining room and there was a cleaner there and the noise was the fridge which he said couldn't be turned off.
I went back to the room but the card swipe wouldn't open the door.
Went down to reception in my pj's and got another card to open the door.
My friend with me in Boxer's complained about the noise and we were offered another room as they couldn't turn the fridges off.
The other room though was a smoking room and guess what???? I don't smoke anymore and there is no way that I could put up with a smoking room.
We had another sleepless night but this time it was the fridge next door and not a spa as we had thought the first night.
Just dozed off in the early hours and guess what happened at 6am again.....the dining room next door was again being set up for breakfast and they were rearranging furniture on the wooden floor.
After all that, they dropped $100 off our bill which I thought was pretty lousy for two almost sleepless nights and woken at 6am.
4 star but what a dump.
