My wife and i managed to get a deal on Grabone for a night here in a spa room with a 2 course dinner for two. We arrived early and while the room was not ready, they did let us park the car in the basement garage early at no charge. the carpark is a tight fit, so if you have a big car, beware. we have a people mover and were glad the carpark at that particular time was not full.
The rooms are clean and tidy, but starting to get a little tired. They have kitchenettes so you can cook your own food in them. they also have washing machine/dryer so if you have an extended stay that would be useful. The bed is large and not split mattress, but i found it a bit soft. I would have liked to have seen some medium or large bed pillows (they were all small).
the shower was strong which i like, and the spa bath clean, although no instructions. each room has an airconditiioning unit, but it was noisy. also you could hear the next room if they have their spa bath on, but thankfully no other human noises :)
the pool area is tired, but has a nice outlook over myers park. However we did enjoy a nice reasonably priced cocktail sitting outside on the patio area.
The service was friendly and willing but far from 5 star. be aware that if you are expecting top notch experience with the service this is not he place for you, but they are trying hard.
the meals were not spectacular. more like a family restaurant quality. they did the trick, but if you are wanting a romantic or special dinner, i suggest booking a meal at a city restaurant. There wine and cocktail list was very basic. I am a caeliac so while they understood this meant no gluten, you could tell i would have to double check with each and every course.
I would have to say that if i had had to pay full price for the meals and accommodation i would have been disappointed, but with the deal i got which was 50% off the room plus the free meals, then it met the purpose well
