    Very handy to the central city and wharf area for walking. Botanic Gardens etc. Wasn't impressed about arrangements for having an evening meal at the Hotel as when I booked in I was told the evening meal was booked out. After a walk along the wharf area came back and approached another person and was told the same but advised that to go up to the restaurant and they were sure they would sort something out which they did.

    I think the location was fantastic with an elevator direct on to Lampton Quay but the rooms were very dated and I didn't receive the VIP upgrade as advertised.The staff were great, very friendly and helpful.
