I am staying in Lasseters because my first choice was full one night of my two night business stay. I make reasonably regular business trips to Alice.
I am disappointed at several levels.
The room is not suitable for a business traveller, no working area, no suitable chair either for desk or for relaxed reading, just two sort of dining chairs. The rest if the layout of the room is strange, such as the double bed hard against one wall, not a problem for a single occupant, but it would be for a couple. The bathroom door opens hard against the front face of the toilet, invonveniently laid out.
The number of bits of paper laid around various surfaces telling me the price of this and the price of that and asking for my feedback, etc, was just straight annoying.
After a pre-dinner swim I arrived at Thali restaipurant to eat. Waited to be seated in a room that was barely half full, to be told that as I has not booked there was no vacancy until at least 8.30pm. I eventually ate at the bar-style Juicy Rump which had a very limited menu but produced an acceptable salad. I did not enjoy the proximity to the gambling area. Thali was still half empty when I walked past it to my room.
I would have appreciated being advised to book at the restaurant when I checked in. This has not been necessary at other local accommodation.
On the upside, free wifi is appreciated (but standard fare so not exceptional). Te pool is good, and the 25m lap lanes are a bonus. But again the detail is not there. A lap pool should not have strong jets from one end and along the sides. It should be still water and the overall pool water circulation should be managed within the play areas of the pool.
