Reception allowed us our room at 11:00, which was fantastic after arriving overnight from Perth. Room 411 was a luxury marina view, with a tiny balcony and floor to ceiling windows. Neutral brown and white decor with a desk, sofa, kettle, fridge, sink. Big bathroom with huge tub and separate shower. Service was very good and friendly.
Wifi worked well once we had been given a code by reception - we ran out of the initial allowance quite quickly, without downloading anything big.
Breakfast in the adjacent 21 Viaduct Cafe was excellent: eggs, toast, rosti & bacon cooked to order: it seemed very popular with local office workers as well, as did the bar in the evening.
The location right on the harbour is gorgeous, with views over lots of expensive yachts and the Sky Tower. It is a short walk to the shops, and there are loads of restaurants nearby.
