I stayed in a hotel room for 5 nights for personal recreational travel.
I rented a car for a few days, but I was able to walk to all the main precincts in the city quite easily from the hotel. I registered my vehicle at reception and I was able to park at the front of the hotel without any issues - very convenient.
I didn't have any laundry facilities in my room, but the laundromat is about a block towards the city centre.
Check-in and Check-out was super easy, the manager/receiptionist was very accomdating, friendly and helpful.
The room is aesthetically pleasing with a king bed and a large bathroom. The toiled was placed unusually close to the wall, however, it caused no massive problems. Would have loved a bath, but the shower is roomy. The bathroom was actually my favourite part of the room - roomy, clean and calming colours. The bath products were also trendy and good quality. My room faced a backpackers and lake street, but the noise was minimal with the glass doors closed; not great for hanging out on the balcony, but the weather was cool enough for me to keep the doors closed!
The pool is what drew me to the hotel! I couldn't use it though as it was quite cool in the mornings and evenings - too cool! The pool is also in complete shade most of the day. Great place to snooze and catch up on some reading nevertheless; there's also quite a nice BBQ area by the pool and reception offer pre-made BBQ hampers at a cost. I was surprised to learn that extra towels for pool use are $2 for hire.
All in all, the hotel was great. I expected a tiny bit more considering the price for my stay. Reception in not always attended and you have to make a call to speak to someone. My room was a bit small, but the bathroom made up for it.The bed was slightly old and hard and the light shades by the bed were covered in thick dust. Also, the television in the room was extremely dated! But access to Foxtel is always good.
Great stay, but will try something else next time.
