Great location along the esplanade and reasonably priced on a deal, there wasn't much wow factor to my stay here at the end of March 2014. Major selling points are the staff who were very helpful and friendly and if you sign up for the VIP you get free wi-fi, which is a big bonus in an Australian hotel.
Rooms were rather plain but clean. Bathroom was small, shower tiny, clothes line useful though. You need to specify each day if you'd like your linen changed but that's part of the hotels green approach.
Beds were too soft for my liking
Air con would shut off
Was charged for someone else's breakfast (but this was resolved quickly by front end staff)
Overall it was a basic experience. I'd recommend the hotel if it's where you're crashing out for the night but nothing stellar in the presentation.
