The staff in this hotel are amazing. The restaurant is quite good. The decor is pretty modern. The location right on the boardwalk is great. So much good makes it one of the better places in Sydney.
The bad is in the details. The building is very damp due to weak air conditioning. You will feel it in the sheets and pillows. It has caused the wall paper to bulge at the seems and the carpet baseboards to come loose. The light switches and cover plates are dirty and dated. You get two flat sheets to sandwich the duvet between and a flat sheet under you. No duvet cover or fitted sheets. Additional warm blankets are old rough and worn. The kitchen comes with 2 cups and two spoons, etc. Two towels in the bathroom. The key cards have been recycled so many times they look more worn than my Credit Card and can be flaky. Obvious cost cutting and not good when you are three people sharing a suite.
The room layout is Bizzare. Anyone sleeping on the pullout has to enter the main bedroom to use the sink. A plus however is windows that actually open and wonderful thick drapes.
Parking is difficult to find. They rent the spaces out to people not staying in the hotel making it difficult to find a spot on weekends.
There is no pool just a hot tub upstairs and rusty gym equipment. Guests are however given access to the local YMCA which offers great equipment.
Overall it doesn't live up to its past glory or the level of product one expects at this price point.
