I stayed here for one night while on business.... got a really good rate and it was very good value.
The location is really good, just across the river from the cbd, so only a 5 min walk to restaurants and pubs etc. It sits next to the river (surprise surprise... maybe the name gives that away), and our room had a really nice aspect looking out onto that.
The room was clean and modern, but for some strange reason there was not a picture on any wall.... normally this wouldn't rate a mention, but it did feel weird, and gave the room a slightly clinical feel, an empty feel. Weird thing to pick out I know, but as I sit here reflecting on the stay, that came to mind.
The bed was ok, and the pillows were good. The tv had some issues remote wise, but it had foxtel options which is good. The bathroom was dated, but was clean and the shower was pretty good.
They have a large outdoor area near the pool, which is set up with tables, chairs and stools.... this was a beautiful place to relax with a drink as the sun was setting.
Overall a really good place to stay.
