It was a shocking price to pay for a budget sized room

6/10 Good

While the reception staff did their best to assist me with this situation, I really have to leave this review because in staying in likely 100's of hotels in my life - this has never happened to me, and it probably hasn't happened to many other travellers. I moved the single couch/chair in my room closer to the desk on my first night in the room to watch a show on my laptop. To my absolute horror and disgust were 2 USED condoms on the floor beneath where the chair had been. I stood staring because I was just so taken aback at seeing that. I called reception (on my mobile phone because the in-house phone wasn't working) and asked her to come and see something disgusting I had just found in my room. I felt absolutely disgusted for her that she had to clean up that mess in front of me. I did discuss with the property manager the next morning as well. Of course everyone was very apologetic and they waved my parking fee for the inconvenience, which I appreciated, however hopefully the incident will lead to better cleaning processes for the whole hotel. The restaurant was also closed, which I had intended on using and hadn't been notified of prior to my stay, so that was an inconvenience. The staff were very nice and did give my room a full service the next day. As a result, it has probably deterred me from staying here again though.

The website did not mention that the restaurant was closed nor that there was no room service. The idea of housekeeping being an "extra" cost is absurd in a hotel and one that I have never encountered. Would not stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Affordable, clean and spacious standard hotel room and safe parking. The only thing I didn’t like is there is no lift from hotel lobby to the basement car park, you have to walk outside to get to the car park lift, a bit secluded.

10/10 Exceptional

I like that this hotel is close to lots of things like six minutes to the city centre and eight minutes to Westfield, and the hotel is very convenient and clean and the staff are freaking friendly awesome, and another thing is there was no microwave in our room so every time we want to warm up our food we need to go downstairs at concierge to do that which I didn’t like but overall I enjoyed my star
