I booked at the last minute on Wotif.com for a weekend of fun with the kids. On arrival parts of the building were tired and a stair well smelt bad but ok. However, getting anything exciting on TV was not happening - no sky and no movies on demand to share later with the kids before they went to bed.
My initial concern was to wake up in the early evening with water pouring from the ceiling in the middle of the room - and from the bathroom ceiling but from the wrong places!. I called reception and was soon issued with a new room - no apology, no concern for my wet gear, no help with moving my stuff up 3 floors to the new room.
The following morning we arrived for breakfast - included in the deal. We had to wait 20 minutes to get a table - too bad if we needed to be somewhere!
On each table was a pad on which to take coffee orders :-). I wrote my order, and asked the waitress what to do with it - she said she could take it. She walked over and she stuck it to the top of coffee machine where there was no one making coffees. I could see the order still on the machine as we finished breakfast and left.
Overall, the pool is nice, but the hotel is tired - certainly not 4.5 stars
