Fabulous 8.6 From 556 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great Spot for a Quickie
Great location and room was away from the road so was very quiet. Only negative was aircon didn’t appear to be calibrated as it needed to be set to 18 for it to feel comfortable
Tim, au1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Good stay. Parking confusing. I payed at the desk then had to tap my eftpos card to get out of the parking?? No sure if I’ve paid twice. The $100 sercurity was the only thing showing yesterday so I’m not sure and haven’t had time to check today. Had people laughing and yelling in the corridor 4:30 am and someone knocking on my door at 10pm but I guess the hotel can’t do much about that.

Excellent hotel to stay at.

Very good 8.0
Very good business hotel and a good price through Hotel.Com Parking also very convenient . A lot of construction work going on with neighbouring buildings but not management's fault . Lack of dedicated concierge sadly seems the norm these days. Hotel however highly recommended with very helpful staff.
