Enjoyed another 2 night stay for business & was again treated extremely courteously by staff & experience was good overall. At almost $300/night for a standard hotel room during a busier period though I don't believe it is value for money.

Everyone on reception very helpful- especially Simon,all his recommendations on the ball. The rooms need a revamp!There is a Coles not far,and Aromas over the road. Weird. When fire bell went off ,we weren't told to move- I contacted reception to see what to do.
