Stayed here for two nights before moving on to a nicer and better priced hotel. This Hotel is old! might have been great in the eighties but it has not been maintained well. The foyer, Cafe restaurant is very old fashioned. The pool area was dirty could see the mould and dirt from above. The balcony was barely wide enough for a chair and was mouldy and dirty. The room itself, had a one bedroom, this is merely two rooms separated by a slide door which did not close properly. The bathroom drain smells and the shower head was broken so it would not stay upright. They fixed it but still had to use it for a night. The TV would not work all morning just about to ring about it but it came on. The kitchenette only had some plates nothing else. No microwave, toaster, element it was really just a sink. There wasn't even a dishcloth. The glasses were dirty lipstick stains still on them - YUK! And I was itchy the whole time I was there! The elevator too kept lurching slightly not a good feeling. They charged me $200 a night! Are you kidding! No way was it worth that. I moved to a 100% better Hotel closer to the CBD and for $70 less a night had a lovely apartment with views, kitchenette - fully stocked, laundry, huge balcony, clean and modern.
The service was odd. Some staff seemed very good others totally useless and strange.
