Lovely hotel, close to CBD. Wonderful clean rooms and very comfortable beds. Rooms are a great size as well. Restaurant was good and no problems getting a reservation. Would definitely stay again and next time we would definitely bring the kids.

Had stayed at Pavilions previously - in main building For this stay, room allocated was in wing at rear of building external access, parking outside, more resembling motel style accommodation. The room itself was very well fitted out - comfortable beds with very soft mattress toppers and good quality linens. Very clean and everything needed for overnight stay. Had chosen...

Enjoyed my stay, very friendly and helpful staff room good size.Only criticism would be parking near your unit.As there is no parking markings a very large 4wD reversed right up to my windows and door so my view was of the back end of a poorly parked 4WD

I would love to have not had to carry my suitcase upstairs but the room was very spacious. The shower room was very pokey but the kitchen was perfect. The walls must be thin because I could hear the neighbour snoring at night. The bed was very comfortable and the staff very friendly.
