The hotel in general is dated. Furniture in the room was old and shabby.

2/10 Poor

Dont bother
Dirty. Smelly. Poor condition of the room was the main reason. We were in a superior queen. I would hate to have been in the standard. No parking on site. Breakfast the next day was best part.

8/10 Very good

Comfortable/ great location
Updated room and bathroom. Very comfortable. Hallways smelt dusty and old. Lift on right had a sing warning of abnormal door closures - did not instil confidence.

I personally won’t booking there again because it was more like a 3 star hotel and the elevators wasn’t working properly at all the whole time I was there yeah more like 3 star hotel need to change there rooms a lot

6/10 Good

Not worth it
The onsite parking said a height limit but it needed to say a size. As in only tiny cars. The offsite parking at golden square was not much better. The shower did not work properly which was badly needed as i came straight from my labour intensive job outside the city and was very frustrated to be late for dinner because of it. The staff were friendly

4/10 Fair

The lifts were barely functional. Despite being told there was onsite parking, it was unsuitable for our vehicle (their decision) the nearest free parking was blocks away and both my wife and I were unable to walk that distance - parking cost over $200 for our stay. Hilary had a hip replacement operation and that was the purpose of our stay. The meal in the restaurant was dreadful the salt and pepper calamari was chinese stuff from a freezer and over cooked. The breakfast was ordinary the sausages were awful and the buffet was not really hot enough. Never agaain!!!!

4/10 Fair

The room that we had for the night was on the very top floors, so was expecting big things, sadly disappointed...the carpet was worn, it was not very well appointed and the furnishings were all very tired....well over due for a makeover I do not recommend this hotel
