Outwardly seemed OK over the phone but disappointment began soon after arriving.
Lack of a proper reception area was a give away. Only glass partition similar to bank counter to enable transaction exemplifies level of service to expect. Perfunctory and anonymous.
Waited over an hour and a half to see a room and even then it wasn't ready. Staff disorganised and unengaging with lack of atmosphere in place similar to hostel or elderly day care centre. The layout was poor and uncomfortable with bland and featureless corridors. Room was fairly large with balcony overlooking small tarmac carpark and concrete tower blocks - not quite the view of Manly you'd want to see at all or ever..
Bland breakfast with such poor choice that it is no surprise it was included in the price. Mildly amused by the disclaimers on display, for example "All Care, No Responsibility". Whatever that meant should have been replaced with "No Care, No Service, No Hospitality". Absolutely no nice touches on offer that justify the expense of this place.
