5 star staff, but the rooms should be better

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Dec 2018
Great front desk staff and plenty of parking, however this hotel is let down by the standard of the rooms, road noise and layout. They are having a lift installed, but at the moment getting to the higher floors means climbing the stairs with your bags. The hallways are dark and uninviting. The room had been updated a little, but it was still lacking - small, older TV with no USB input, chips on doors, hole in wall under sink etc. Room was clean enough, but a little more attention to the corners in the shower would have improved it. Getting in and out of the car park can take a while as the road outside is very busy, especially at peak times. If it wasn't for the staff, this would have been a 2 star review.

Lovely welcome and wonderful staff very friendly and fun. Glad we only stayed one night as the bedding was terrible. Needs new beds and pillows. A bit dated and very average for the price. Nice and clean. Having bar onsite was great after travelling and plenty of parking.

Room tip: Get a room away from road

They say the first impression counts. Well we got a very warm and friendly welcome, couldn't have been better.
We were shown to our room which was well appointed and very clean.
So happy with the location, the price and the place.
Plenty of parking too.

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.

Room tip: Away from the road

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.
