3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Room comfort
Fix these things to get 5 star stay....
Hotel was central for our business trip so perfect. Check in was easy, receptionist very helpful and friendly. Room was well appointed. Only let down was not sure when the tiled floors had last been washed which was a bit off-putting in the bathroom which I was going to talk to receptionist about but didn't get opportunity. It could have just been the type of tile, but didn't think I should be seeing water splash marks on the floor around the basin and toilet areas. Disappointed with teh shower caddy which was a stick on plastic job coming away from the wall, so could see black mould coloration in glue but the shower itself perfectly clean and great shower pressure. Also there was a slight smell to the room which I put down to the shower and soap buildup in drain. Leaving the bathroom fan on fixed that issue. A very good room/stay marked down by easily fixable things. The receptionist was lovely, genuinely friendly and helpful.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The location of this property is extremely convenient for the CBD, supermarket just around the corner, many restaurants, cafes within walking distance even a really good International food court. Opposite a large park, on-site parking & buses to most places within 50 meters. Reception good, it’s a little dated. Will use again for pure convenience. Room well equipped & clean.
