I was booked in for 3 weeks, and had to move rooms after 2 which was a bit of an inconvenience.
The rooms were reasonably sized, though INCREDIBLY dark. As I had a room (or 2 rooms) facing into the centre of the complex, no sun got through to my room whatsoever, which is a shame in the middle of and Australian summer.
Also, my balconies both had gutters running into them - All water from above balconies ran through to mine, which made it very hard to sit there, let alone walk onto without shoes on.
The location is close to Bridge Road, though as far up Bridge from the city as you can get and not full of a lot of action. However, the tram ride is only 10 minutes from the city. The good thing though is that it is right on the river, handy if you want a walk.
The restaurant had a fantastic menu and breakfast, and I had several meals there at a great price - Great bar called The Bridge right over the road also.
And the staff were fantastic. Always smiling and happy to help. One thing - Use your "Do Not Disturb" sign if you don't want any knocking on the doors earlier than 8am!
All in all, a nice hotel, great staff, close to the city, and my rooms were well sized but very dark and generally felt quite 'cheap'.
