The promo for our $985 rack rate room sounded just the ticket for a long awaited romantic weekend away. What we to was a hotel 50yrs past its use by date, our room smelling like someone died there last month, steel (yes not aluminium) windows that were in such a bad state of repair you couldn't open them, nor could you open the steel French doors to access the patio. This was not necessarily a bad thing as straight across Collingwood St is the Oasis Night Club!! There was mould & holes in the massive curtains, the carpet was worn and the wallpaper not faring much better. The car park was down a scary back alley, so tight I had to do a 3point turn to get & out and the building reminded me of a stables at the turn of the century (last century that is)!
But there is always a bright side, the staff were brilliant. But that's it.
My only advice - Do not stay here.
