The wedding magazines on every table should have been a giveaway that this place makes its money from the wedding racquet and not from a reputation for quality accommodation.
The building is beautiful, historic and lovely to look at from the lobby but that's where it ends. We were supposedly 'upgraded' to room 35. Yes it was chintzy. I can forgive that given it is an historical building and they want to keep in theme with the era. BUT! Threadbare carpet, dirty, old and very dusty room with the cheapest, nastiest bathroom I've seen in a hotel in Australia does not equal a trip down memory lane.
This room cost us $250 but was worth half the price if that, even with breakfast.
As for the wardrobe, it looked like something rescued from the Salvos, as did the rest of the furniture. There's a difference between vintage and crap.
There is a wedding on tonight, so we cannot try the restaurant and we pray the wedding party do not keep us up tonight as we cannot get a refund on the room.
Beware before you book online.
