10/10 Exceptional

Loved every minute
Everything from check in to check out was great. We loved the note we got from Narelle wishing us a great day after our first night. We actually tried to hide it to see if we would get another.... The room was wonderful, our little patio was covered in trees and plants, which we were very upset that one got taken out. We guess it was because it was mostly blocking the entrance to the patio, but we missed our plant once it was removed, hehe. Its not a complaint because everyone is different, but we found the left side of the bed very soft and both struggled to sleep on it. Again not a complaint because someone else will live it, everyone is different and we loved our stay 😊😊

4/10 Fair

Run down, not clean, not up to standards of Shangri La. Was disappointed. Got stuck in bowels of hotel with no view. Positive was gym nearby. Shame. This hotel had a great location, but feel it’s living too much off of that fact. Need a facelift. Old.

8/10 Very good

Loved our stay!!
I really enjoyed my stay. It is a great location, the breakfast is great, room clean and comfortable. The pool is amazing, I wish I had more time to enjoy the hotel and its facilities but it was a quick 2 night stay. I would definitely I rely stay again. The only criticism is that the bed slid around as it was not attached to the wall or a headboard.

2/10 Poor

Very dispointment
The facility is like a motel, out dated, so plain, nothing fancy. Lighting in the room is very dark. Only a swimming pool, no hot tub, no sauna. Only one set of sofa for the check in area. Yard is tiny. The ground floor is a shopping facility, feel very unsafe. Most shopps are empty. The whole city is run down.
