On the upside - wifi, shower pressure and the lifts were all great, contrary to some other reviews on this site. We were in a 1 bdrm suite on level 1 with our young family, and the space was functional enough but this hotel is 3 star at best - not 4 star. On the downside (and there are many), our bathroom sink constantly leaked all over the floor, our balcony had crumbling plaster and was frankly unsafe, our fridge had water dripping inside it, the carpet was pulling away at the edges, there was a large open crack in the bedroom by the window filled with cobwebs and dirt, and the whole suite was completely rundown and unclean. Our "parkview" outlook was in fact the brick wall and rubbish area for the neighboring school, but the rooms on the higher levels might be better. The walkway to the hotel is shared with traffic so can be a bit unnerving with the pram. The staff were fairly helpful, but I needed to proactively ring housekeeping every day to ask for our room to be serviced. We also had a staff member walk into our suite without knocking at one point to check the minibar, which resulted in both of our children waking from their afternoon naps as they were sleeping in that main room. We used Qantas airpoints to stay here (possibly why we were given such a terrible room) but feel the hotel has missed an opportunity to impress us as frequent travelers. We definitely won't be back.
