    I liked the rooms, very spacious.

    The room service menus are too expensive. Should be able to choose what you want instead of having only two options.

  • Family with children

    The bed was nice and big. Esp for the twin room, the extra large single bed was great comfort. bathroom was also clean.

    Tv was a bit old. would be better if provided toothbrush

    Breakfast in the morning great value. Location is good.

    Room was a bit dusty - I have stayed before and found the same!

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Close to main shopping complex

    Even though there was a restaurant, there was nowhere to prepare your own meals- some people don't like to eat out all the time, as it becomes too expensive

  • Single

    They were double booked when I arrived, but relocated and upgraded me into a 'Privilege' room at same rate. Excellent view; nice room.

  • Couple
    8.8

    it was easy to get to and the receptionists were great.

    only that it wasnt made clear enough that you had to pay for the room as soon as you booked. i was made to believe that i was able to pay on the day and when i arrived i almost didnt get the room. i wasnt told about he price of the bond payment either

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Very easy to check in and stay. No problems because the booking was paid for in advance through bookings.com.au.

  • Couple
    6.6

    After staying at the hotel myself and my partner started itching all over. And had bites all over us. This leads us to the conclusion that we were bitten by bed bugs from the bed. This made us feel unclean and very disappointed as we have never experienced that before. Unfortunately it put a damper on the rest of our holiday as we were uncomfortable and had to purchase creams to stop the itch and rash like bits. I am letting you know this as we are very disappointed and I think it should be address by you as I am sure you don't want other complaints like this. Thanks you for your time
