We booked a Wotif Wot Hotel deal, where the hotel is not identified, nor is the location, only the price; a sort of lucky-dip!
It turned out to be Royal on the Park, at $150/night, which we regard as good value.
I can only comment on the room - which was clean and well-presented - and staff, who were pleasant and friendly and did their jobs well.
Our room overlooked the botanical gardens, making for a great view over same and parts of the city, even including hot-air balloons flying overhead.
My wife and I don't eat in hotel dining rooms, or use hotel bars, so we can't comment on those facilities.
The Royal is not far from the Queen Street Mall, if one is acccustomed to walking.
All in all, not a bad hotel.
