This hotel, from the outside, doesn't look like much. Busy street outside, no parking. Once you walk inside the doors however, it is a totally different experience. Reception is very modern and tidy. The reception staff were friendly and efficient; within minutes I had registered and had my keycard.
Staying in room 204, I was pleasantly surprised with my room. A good sized kitchen area, small dining table for two, reasonable sized lounge, flat screen TV, separate bedroom with twin bed and very large toilet / bathroom. The bathroom also had an inbuilt washer and dryer. This bathroom was designed to have disabled access which would account for the larger size but I was very happy with it just the same.
Now, the bad points - and boy am I going to be picky.
TV reception. Why do hotels throughout Australia have high quality HD flatscreen TVs and then pump poor quality TV signals into them? The picture quality was the same as you could expect from a poorish analogue signal; the locations have digital signals - please use them!
The bathroom. The builder didn't do such a great job in this room and the incline towards the drains on the floor was off; water tended to puddle in areas both inside the shower area and within the bathroom.
Aircon. It seemed to be stuck on one setting: 21C. The remote controller would not change the setting. This would suit most people but some may like it warmer or cooler.
Overall I thought the hotel was excellent value for money: clean, modern, well equipped. Good location. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone for both business or pleasure, short or extended stay.
