Room was ok. It was a good central location. But we had issues with the Tao and shower with spraying water everywhere. This was rectified however the two then produced brown water full of sediments which my husband and I only realised after drinking from and brushing our teeth. The person at front desk upon checkout couldn't help and told...

I booked this hotel for a 5-night stay for my family because of its location and river view. I checked in just before the Good Friday. At that time, the renovation work at the lobby was not finished and one of the two lifts had to be closed. It is Easter holidays. Many peopled checked in or out. My family...

Needs to improve. Tiny bathroom. No hairdryer. Miss matched crockery. Paint flaking from ceiling. Mould in bathroom tiles. Decor remains in the 'vintage' category...and not classic vintage. Location may be its only good point.

The view, location and staff were great. This hotel should be rated a 3 star. Our room had so much light coming in from door and window and noisey bathroom fan which could not be turned off plus noisey air conditioner. Old decor uncomfortable bed and pillow.

The hotel was extremely cheap for a good central location so I wasn't expecting high end. The room was very tired but they are in the process of doing up the building so I presume they will work their way through. It was the worst shower I've ever had anywhere, no power at all. We had booked partly for the...

Recently stayed at this hotel and it was very disappointing. The staff was friendly enough but they gave very little information. There was also no information papers in your room or on the phone to even call the desk. The room needed to be updated 5 years ago. Everything was old and worn. Move on to another location.

If all you're looking for is suitably priced accomodation that is walking distance to Queen St Mall, Treasury Casino, Southbank and Central Station this is a good place to start. All I wanted was an affordable bed to sleep in and I found it

Everything is extra. Breakfast (expensive too), parking, bag storage, internet, shuttle (not their own). Staff are very friendly, except for one bloke, but I think the problem is with whoever is running the show. The staff don't have much to work with. Rooms are dated but clean. Ok if you want basic, but I don't know the value for money...
