Great room including two queen sized beds. Though we didn't use the full facilities, we would have done so if we stayed longer, and had more time (i.e. cooking and microwaving capability). We were recommended to use the restaurant (Romeo and Juliet's) for dinner and were definitely not disappointed (see review for today). No doubt that we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Just ask when booking. You will get honest advice.

While the room is really quite basic, Shakespeare offered everything I needed and the same as what most other hotels charge twice as much for. Super friendly team and waited up for my late arrival.
If you're going to be at MECC it's a really short walk and the best value accommodation.
I wasn't feeling so well so didn't try the restaurant - but have only heard good things about it, and for mid week, it seemed busy with locals - which is always a good sign!

I stayed here in the week after cyclone debbie and despite the weather event that had happened the hotel was fully operational with an amazing menu to boot! Rooms were serviced for us and the staff were absolutely amazing the whole time! Everything I ordered off the menu was 5 star and could not fault it! Even if it's just staying one night, a week or just visiting for dinner I highly recommend this hotel!
