2/10 Poor

I was waken up due to very noisy neigbours from 10pm until 12am. Couldn’t reach receptionist at that time. I was waken up at 5am due to some sort of construction happening in the garden with very noisy glass window shattering sound. Very unpleasant experience and would never stay here again. I asked for a refund as I couldn’t get any sleep. It took me nearly a week to get some sort of response back and I was given $30 refund which is not even half of what I paid for. Ridiculous, never stay here if you want to get some sleep.

4/10 Fair

The receptionist was very friendly. The hotel is attached to a bar that was having a party ‘it was so loud that I could feel the music in my room’ I was hoping to use the pool but people from the party were in there. When trying to block the sound out by plugging my earphones into my laptop, the WiFi was so bad it was impossible to drown out the sound. The party stopped at a reasonable time but there were after parties and a lot of noise throughout the night. I would not stay again.

6/10 Good

Average. Good only for sleep. But too noisy
The back room faced the rubbish. Not aesthetic. Was difficult to work out how to turn shower. But only the bottom tap worked. So i wanted to take bath but no stopper for the tub. Bit not user friendly. Too noisy people dumping rubbish
