We stayed here for 5 nights over Easter. we did not know there was an A league football match scheduled for the weekend but that did not bother us much, except we could not get a seat at dinner that night.
The hotel prides itself on its 1920s decor which is fine for the accommodation part (the lift is a treat) but it stops there. You could be in any pub when it comes to the dining area.
The hotel is situated on the corner of two main streets. Our room was in the back so noise was not an issue. If you had one of the front rooms with a balcony it may be.
Our room was small, too small for the gear we had. The cupboard was a short one and too small for the clothes we needed to hang. When you opened the door it hit the bed end and you had to push to get it fully opened. The bar fridge poked out from the wall and had to be negotiated around to get past the bed. The bed was a double which was all that could realistically fit in the room, being a 1920s building. We had an en suite with shower, toilet and very small hand basin. The room had no fly screens so mosquitoes were a problem. There was a ceiling fan but no air conditioning. The room was serviced daily.
When we arrived we directed by signs to the bar area where we were given a key and left to our devices. As I said this is a pub with accommodation. No where did we see any concession to people in wheel chairs and one afternoon while we were having a beer in the dining room we saw an older lady struggling with her luggage to get the heavy double doors open so she could come in. My husband helped her with that.
This is a pub with accommodation, handy for the football stadium, just about across the road from the railway station and across the road is the Imperial Centre for shopping. There is a residents only car park behind the hotel with a boom gate to limit parking for hotel guests.
I guess it was an OK stay but the focus of the business is a pub with accommodation so take that as you will.
