Stayed here in November 2013. Not overly impressed. We arrived quite early and our room wasn't ready, no big deal, but when we checked in later at 2.30 the smell of bleach was so overpowering that I had to leave the room as I got quite light headed from the fumes. The desk clerk arranged for a fan to be put in the room which meant that we had to sit in the lounge for 40 minutes while the smell cleared. While I understand that bleach is needed to clean the room effectively, I would have expected the smell to have dissipated somwhat prior to our checkin. Also the lift wasn't working and we were on the top floor, 80 stairs each way whenever we wanted to access our room and the last thing you want to do after visiting a cave (or 3)! The only power point I could find for the kettle was located on the floor so making a cuppa was a novel experience. Expected better from an Australian hotel catering to tourists.
