2/10 Poor

Beds are hard, rooms are dirty old & dated, bathroom taps don’t run and screech when they do, you can’t adjust the hot & Cold water so we had a cold shower for 3 days. The airconditioning struggles & makes a loud sound also. The staff are rude & unhelpful. Corridors are long boiling hot and lack air. Housekeeping lady is rude she collects bottles and stores them up & down corridors, leaves dirty used blankets on hall way furniture & pushes past you. The walls are paper think in rooms so all you hear all night is people slamming doors having sex and showering, there is only one blanket provided in room, the blanket is like a old army blanket, it’s itchy dirty & has visibly stains and marks all over it. The aboriginal people who live closeby, come down from there community & get very drunk & behave in a very unwelcome manner, we could see a group of 8 or more aboriginals laying in door way too hotel drinking smoking, screaming swearing, asking for money ect. This isn’t a good look & makes you feel unwelcome. I couldn’t leave the building without being ask for money bus fares, smokes ect. The location is central however the mall that is adjacent to this hotel has lots of council made parks, this is where all the aboriginal people hang out & destroy with there drinking smoking and fighting. Avoid this hotel like the plague. Regards Dean
