Clean and comfortable

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Jun 2018
Good sized rooms, nice and clean a little dated with the decor. Good heaters which warmed the room quickly on a cold winters night. Heaps of off street parking, restaurant on site but I didnt try it. Large gym just off the reception area. Hotel is located on a busy road so ask for a room off the street if you are a light sleeper. My room was a few rooms back from the road and I never heard the traffic and slept well.

Received a very friendly welcome & good service at check-in. The rooms were fine, comfy & a good size with nice facilities. Nice views from the rooms facing the road, though as a light sleeper the traffic noise bothered me a bit (earplugs were needed). Decent breakfast options. An easy walk to Caroline Bay & centre city. Plenty of parking. Was happy with this choice of accommodation.

Have stayed here a few times now. It's comfortable clean and convenient. Have eaten at the restaurant which doesn't pretent it's something else when it's not and so us not pretentious about it's food. Having said that the food that I have experienced punches above its weight.

Stayed at the Benvenue on business and the girls on reception was very personable! Check in very quick and directions about the hotel very good. I had dinner in my room which was a very good lamb dish and I slept very well. Two things stuck out from previous hotel rooms, the first was they room had 11 power points in the room which seemed a lot but it was a positive. The only down side for me was the gym off reception which seemed strange that you walk in to see people exercising, but all in all the stay was good the check in the morning was quick and easy, will stay again!

Room tip: The rooms at back of the hotel would better as the main highway is out front.

Room had all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. The meals in the restaurant where well presented and there was a great choice. The hotel its self was in a great location easy parking, I enjoyed being able to have a view over the street. It was a little noisey but that wasn't a problem

Room tip: Ask for something away from the main road if you want quiet

Do you love the sights and sounds of traffic? Heavy vehicles within 5 metres of your bedroom window? Being lulled to sleep by the thunder of tyres and the gentle waft of exhaust fumes? Then this is the place for you.

Regrettably the staff are friendly, cheerful, helpful and really very nice, which spoils the chance of giving a truly horrific review. They are the main saving grace in somewhere I hope never to stay in again, unless I die and get sent there at the pearly gates which might be understandable.

The food is as average as it is overpriced. The service was sparkling and attentive.

The bathroom was recently renovated and probably the best part of the room. With hindsight, this is the best room to sleep in, just drag the mattress through.

Room tip: Don't fall for "executive suite". Just don't go there. It's a motel room, with an extra windowless bedroom.
