This hotel is starting to look 'tired' and in need of a refresh -- particularly in its guest rooms. However, the major facilities such as the bars and dining areas, as well as the Conference facilities are as modern as tomorrow.
With the exception of the two staff at the reception desk at check-in (who appeared to not want to be at work), the other staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff looking after guests on the Conference level.
Access to the hotel by car is currently restricted due to road works, and there is no guest self parking available. However Valet parking is available for a very reasonable AUD $25 overnight -- and no tips are expected.
Overall: good value for the price paid. Ideal as a Conference Venue with easy access to dozens of excellent local restaurants including on the nearby Pier.
