Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reuben W wrote a review 20 Feb
Sydney, Australia1 contribution
We encountered an issue with our Chromecast while trying to connect it from my iPad to the TV in our lounge. Despite attempting to contact reception by dialling their number, I couldn't establish a connection. So, I decided to go down to the reception and speak to Lachlan about my problem. He assured me that he would send someone up to our room (number 808) who would be able to assist me. Within a few minutes, Presley - the night maintenance technician - arrived at our room and promptly reset the input to the TV, pairing my iPad with it. Presley was very courteous throughout and even offered to help me with the setup of my iPhone. I would like to take this opportunity to convey my appreciation to Presley for his professional and efficient assistance. He is a fantastic example of an employee who is a credit to your hotel brand.

Hello ReubenW56, Thank you so much for your comments! First of all, my apologies for the technology issues. There seem to be a lot of systems trying to talk together and it's causing some confusion so I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Secondly, your comments about Presley made me smile. Presley is indeed quite the asset and quite the character. He was amongst the very first employees I hired nearly 12 years ago as we prepared to open EAST. His dedication and service ethos are enviable and an absolute asset to us. We do appreciate and treasure him (as we do our whole team!). I do wish I could clone Presley! Thanks again for your review, ReubenW56. I do hope we get to welcome you back soon. Best Regards, Todd

Awesome spot, close to restaurants and other places to visit. Cafe, bar and restaurant on ground level meant we didn't need to travel far for food and plenty of parking undercover. Kingston Hotel across the road is always a favourite.

Another amazing stay at this lovely hotel. Our room was lovely and spacious, including a big bathroom with separate shower, toilet and full sized bath. The toiletries smell divine and I was lucky enough to have a little gift in the room for my special occasion. Staff are lovely, but a special shout out to Jessie.

It's rare to find a hotel that ticks every box on the wish list but this one did. Comfort, cleanliness, quality of food and drink, great mini bar (reasonably priced), friendly and helpful staff and the list goes on. Best shower water pressure of any hotel I have stayed at in the past 5 years (75+ hotels). Great location and easy access makes this hotel a 'keeper' for me.

Our room was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped, and we loved the fluffy towels and relaxed 12.00pm checkout. It is an easy walk to Kingston cafes, etc. from the hotel, and the city centre is a short drive away.

I was in Canberra on business and had 2 nights at the hotel. It worked extremely well for us. We received an unsolicited upgrade to a studio and everything worked well. We hosted 2 dinners at Agostinis which were both very good. We will stay here again.
