I enjoyed my time here.It was a bit of a walk to everywhere but I like to walk and the spring weather was fabulous.Roll on the trams though and then this will be an even better location to sleep quietly but get to see all that both old and new town have to offer.
Although the staff could not been more helpful, putting systems in place would mean that they could automate tasks and save time to do other more important things i.e. having an intercom at the front door to stop reception staff having to get up every time I forgot my code;checking whether teas etc need replacing;explaining to bewildered Australians how the various electricity options work i.e. the Tv and heated towel rail and how to turn down the heating and check voicemail.All this could simply be added to the welcome booklet.
What I did not like were the meals on offer..a two hour wait for cold greasy chips.Either re design the menu so that it can withstand that kind of wait or set up a restaurant please.
Overall though I loved the keenness of all the staff to get it right and with that attitude I will happily recommend it.
