This hotel has a lot of plusses going for it: free wifi, secure parking, a swimming pool in a private courtyard setting and with it being in a good location at Kangaroo Point just off the main road, this means good transport links into the city too.
A few niggles meant that it lost a star or so along the way, some of which might be worth noting here:
Wifi relates to overall stay in hours for use by 1 device only.
The underground car park is only unlocked from 10pm through 6am so if you need access outside of these times, be sure to park on the private forecourt immediately outside and not within the gates.
Watch out for the bedside units which are not fixed onto the walls so when you pull the fantastically large and deep drawers out, the whole unit tips forward.
The rooms are spacious but the shower rooms are rather compact, with a sliding door that doesn’t quite offer the total discretion you might prefer when sharing a family room. The bathroom also seemed to suffer from an ant problem.
The staff were quick and efficient at attending to any problems whenever necessary though. Not only are they a mine of information but they couldn’t ‘be more polite, friendly and helpful either, day or night. How refreshing.
They definitely make this a hotel well worth choosing.
Foodie Tip: There is an all night supermarket across the road serving hot food right through to the early hours of the morning, but for some excellent pub grub with meal deals, try the ‘Piney’ just over the green across from the hotel.
