Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Positives: 1. Very central and close to riverside walks; cafes/restaurants/bars; Hamilton gardens & lake; hospital; supermarkets; medical centres; shops 2. Large room 3. Front reception staff were friendly but took a while to sort out some room issues (see below) Negatives: 1. Quite difficult to find - one small sign on footpath stating 'VR Hamilton'. Bit confusing because it still has 'Le Grande Hotel' on the building itself. 2. There is no reserved street parking so just to check in, I had to park about 4 blocks away and make my way on foot to reception. 3. Car parking is atrocious - costs an additional $20 per day, is quite difficult to find (it is down a shabby alley on the other side of the block) and is very narrow and difficult to park and then get out. 4. Shower nozzle was snapped off on my arrival - told the 1st receptionist and nothing happened the following day; told another receptionist and he said - 'come down and remind me again tomorrow' so was finally fixed on my last day there. 5. Rooms weren't serviced over the entire 3 days. 6. My room overlooked Victoria St (the main drag) which was very busy and noisy till the early hours of the a.m. 7. Beds were very soft - ended up sleeping on the floor on a thermarest sleeping mat I fortunately had with me. 8. Bed covers were stained. 9. Access key was partly broken and kept jamming in the door 10. Very limited cooking facilities - jug and fridge but no microwave 11. Difficult to alter dates since booked via expedia

They don’t do refunds after Expedia booked me for the wrong date. Partially my fault for not double checking before booking.
