The rooms are quite spacious and the bed comfortable. The double sliding doors also kept the room very quiet while also allowing you fresh air when you wanted it. The location was good. The service was excellent - free upgrade to a river view room, very fast check-in/out and very friendly reception staff. If I hadn't read the TripAdvisor reviews (claiming it to be the number 1 place to stay in the CBD) then I probably would have been quite happy. It was good, but not extraordinary. There were nice little touches, such as free home made biscuits delivered just after arriving, but the rooms were fairly nondescript (except for the hand basin being bizarrely located outside the bathroom) and there are other hotels in better locations. Also the view was quite nice but nothing earth shattering. Don't get me wrong, this is a really good place to stay, it just didn't feel as special as the No1 TripAdvisor hotels normally are. A short walk up Flinders St is DeGraves St - a fantastic place for breakfast or dinner.
