Definitely not a bad stay, just nothing special. Negatives - requested a king bed, received a room with two doubles; bathroom tiny, slightly grubby; lifts incredibly slow. Positives - friendly helpful staff, good location.
Really this place was like most australian mid-priced hotels, they're ok but you get the feeling their hey day was in the 90s. Wifi is also the usual ridiculous price (which was a pain because 3G was non-existent with Optus so we needed it!).
