    The availability and location to southern cross station for transport opportunities and the pub next door

    Dirty cutlery & crockery in breakfast area that had supposedly been washed. Insufficient internet signal to allow connection in the room and needed to sit in foyer. Limitation of TV stations to keep up with what is happening in the world.

    The location was good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    Our room seemed to have wet carpet by the bathroom door. We felt as though it was reasonably expensive in comparison to the other hotel we stayed at for the duration of our weekend, We don't mind paying good money for a good room but expect when the price rises so do the facilities eg. Our television in our room was old and very fuzzy and made loud noises which overtook the sound of the channel we were watching, Aside from that the room was clean and comfortable :)

    Cheap.

    Very poor bathrooms. Very thin walls - noise from next room. Reception staff unhelpful when requested to repair toilet. Bar closed V. early. Definitely not 4-star.

  • Couple

    The shower was very hot and good water flow

    The staff were mostly helpfull but not all some quite rude. The menus were not up to date (room service menu in their paperwork but no room service avaliable) when asked to make up the room was not always done

    The fact it has my name. lovely spacious bed. nice shower. Loved the continental breakfast.

    The room was very small, struggled to put my suitcase in it. The continental breakfast stopped cooking before 9.30 which was disappointing, wanted to try the pancakes. inconsistency with room sizes, paid the same as my sister and their room was very spacious compared to mine.
