    Very Good 8.0 From 945 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Lovely, comfortable stay
    Stayed five nights in December 2020. Room and bed was extremely comfortable. Staff were friendly and food and drink within the hotel restaurant was great quality. The only gripe I had is that there was no shower gel provided for some reason. There was no room cleaning during the stay but I can understand the reason for this. I would stay here again. This property deserves a higher rating than it has here.

    Michael, au1 night romance trip
    Good 6.0
    Requested a high floor room, got one at the bottom. Very dated hotel. Bed was extremely comfortable and room was very large and pleasant. For the room I’d give 8/10 - for everything else a 5/10.
    Dazzles, au1 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    Very tired but clean property. Tiny bathroom, the door hits the toilet placed at an angle. Comfortable beds but pillows could have been firmer and hard to sleep with noisy AC.

    Room is very small eg. front door bangs into wardrobe and bathroom door bangs into toilet
