This was our 4th stay at the Ramada and once again it proved to be a comfortable, clean and convenient place to relax and chill out for a couple of nights. We elected for the 1 bedroom suite with river views (our favourite position) and were located on the 6th floor - very quiet although the view towards the sea was obscured by the building - views up river are great and the abundance of bird life on dusk was spectacular. The balcony is spacious with table/chairs for viewing, drinks, breakfast or lazing about.
As always, the rooms are spacious and very clean - no complaints other than a bit of attention is needed to replace light globes/dimmer.
The king size bed offered plenty of space and does not cramp other aspects of the room. The bedroom also had a work desk with cabled internet access (as well as the wireless access) but these are provided at a cost (from $5). The kitchen facilities provide everything required for a short stay. Covered off-street parking is conveniently located with swipe-card (room key) access.
The cafe/restaurant is in a great location right on the riverbank with offerings that are OK rather than stunning. Adjacent restaurants offer alternatives - we dined in one night but went to Che' Bon at nearby Tintenbar the other night.
Overall highly recommended at reasonable rates, provided you pick one of the deals that are regularly offered.
