After booking the hotel through a Qantas package i read up on reviews for this hotel, some good, some not so good. We decided that as this was a quick stay and we would be out of the hotel most of the time; it wouldnt be a problem - all we needed was a place to sleep. Looking back i wish i had paid more attention to the reviews.
The location was fantastic very short walk from the drop off point for the Skybus, close to the Casino and DFO - we didnt need to use public transport at all.
The Kingsgate staff were fantastic; friendly and helpful
The room was small but suitable, clean and well presented. However we were not able to turn our heater off without getting a water hammer like sound but this was nothing compared to the pub/nightclub next door. Until 4am we could clearly hear the music from the club. We were on the 6th floor and could early hear converstations of people in the court yard, smashing of bottles, lyrics to songs, and the DJ pumping up the crowd. Needless to say we didnt get much sleep.The next morning we were greeting with footpaths covered in vomit and food.
I will not be staying at this hotel again; would be perfect for a quick over night visit if the noise issue was able to be resolved.
