Booked a deluxe room and stayed overnight last night at this Hotel and was very disappointed. Had a room above the rear of the Hotel overlooking the outdoor eating area which had no opening window so had to have the air con on the whole time. Absolutely NO mobile phone reception in room despite being with Telstra. The room was quite shabby with patchy, worn carpet and furnishing and very poor lighting. No guest directory in room and I had to go and ask for an in room dining breakfast menu. In bathroom no shelving or bench to put anything on when showering - there was a small sink outside the bathroom but not convenient when showering. Bedding was spotlessly clean but the mattress was really hard and uncomfortable. Had to park out back of Hotel and drag suitcase up steps to get in and Reception person said it's "pot luck" as to whether I would get a parking spot at all !! Sat in foyer trying to get phone reception and I was able to wipe the dust off the coffee table it was so dirty. Breakfast in room arrived at preferred time but was only average. Not even serviette on tray. Overall, very disappointing and I would not stay here again.
