“Perfect location, but rooms a bit tired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I stayed with a number of work colleagues for a week, just after the Grand Prix. The staff were good, from reception through to the cleaners. The room was always properly cleaned, and the blackout blinds are really very effective. Just minor annoyances detracted, such as swipe keys that consistently refused to work. The room was on the small side, however it did have a king size bed. The pillows definitely need replacement though. The overall decor is getting a bit tired, but the location - across from the beach and minutes walk to Ackland Street and lots of fine eateries etc - is faultless.

Room Tip: ask for a beach view as the carpark view is nothing special !!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights while attending a wedding earlier this month. The location is great - right across the road from the beach and with easy access to the city. I cannot fault the staff, they were all friendly and courteous and made me feel welcome. On the downside, I felt some of the details in the room (which was pretty small) could have been enhanced, the bathroom in particular gave a cheap, plastic impression and it wouldn't have taken much to give a classier finish. I was surprised that I wasn't offered tea or coffee at breakfast, but maybe that's an Australian thing. Would I go back - yes. Is it the best hotel I've ever stayed in - sadly not.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, the room I was in overlooked a carpark
