Reviewed 21 September 2017

Very conveniently located within CBD, 10 minutes walk from the Central train station. Rooms were clean and tidy. Shared hotel facilities like pool and gym with Pullman Hotel which is just next door.

Very nice restaurant that offers freshly prepared dishes. We had lunch there and enjoyed it.

Very reasonable hotel rate for a convenient hotel in CBD.

Stayed here as a stop-off on our holiday to and from visiting relatives. Good central location, however it was a bit tricky to find the car park, which is actually right beside reception at the front of the hotel, however we drove round the block a few times before we found it. Parking a bit pricey and you don't need a car in the city. Easy to walk across the bridge to the South Bank, or walk into town to visit the shopping streets. Shame there was no free Wi-Fi in the room as I like to research trips, book on-line and look at locations on maps. Free 20 minutes on computer terminals in Reception but didn't have Adobe so couldn't look at menus etc. Room comfortable enough with everything you need provided. Great views over the river.

The hotel is in a great location, so easy to get around the city; hop over to Southbank, go to the shopping malls. The only thing that let the location down was the topless venue at the top of the block. The rooms were a good size and the bathroom too. Unfortunately we found the lighting poor. There is only side lights, a floor lamp and a desk lamp (that wasn't working) so at night it was hard to find things in the suitcase as it was just too dark! In the day you could open the curtains and the room was filled with sunshine. The staff were all helpful. Ummed and aarghed between a three or four rating but the lighting really was a pain (romantic but just not practical!) and as is so often the case with hotels the mini bar was expensive even for soft drinks, the water was extortionate! It's a perfectly good hotel though, clean, friendly etc

The pictures of this hotel online looks very nice and well lit but we arrived to dim lights and bland brown walls is mostly what you see even going up to your hotel room they have skinny hallways and is dimly lit horror movie vibes. Small room and bad view we were expecting river views because that is what we were told when booking our room. You Have to pay for wifi which is slow and unreliable. Aircon was poor. And the big finish we got locked out of our room coming back from a great night with dinner to eat we wanted to rest but we tried our key did not work eventually after going back and forth they got the manager to have a look has maintenance was not there we were waiting for nearly an hour to get in and all to find out the reason we could not get in is the door lock is ran on BATTERIES! They had died. But the staff were friendly except for one that called her co worker a air head not in a sarcastic way either . Fair walk to CBD

First the positives, the Reception staff and concierge are excellent - friendly, helpful and do their best to rectify things that go wrong. The hotel is also close to Queen St Mall and the city centre attractions.
And the not so good?
1) We booked (and paid for) 2 nights including an 8.00am check-in. After a 35 hour trip we were tired, jet lagged and just wanted a shower and sleep. Unfortunately the room wasn't ready for 2 hours. A refund for the failed early check-in and voucher for a coffee was appreciated but doesn't make up for a systems failure that allows this to happen.
2) I slept poorly the first night, the mattress on my side seemed to sag towards the middle. In the morning I decided to flip it over to see if that improved things. WOW!!! Two single divans had been pushed together, and the divan legs on the inside had been removed so it sloped inwards (but was also below the other in the middle) and the mattress placed back on top! (See photo below) Lying on it caused me to roll into the middle too! I think the manager was more shocked than me to see this and arranged a room change/upgrade.
So, great staff but poor booking systems and housekeeping. We won't be back.
