Got this hotel off Wotif. Hotel looked pretty good from the photos and the special of $140 inc parking and breakfast for two seemed fair. What a shocking disappointment. Hotel was very gaudy, tired, Pakistani-style decor and fittings. Quite depressing. Reception unattractive and uninviting. Lift carpet dirty. Empty cartons from furniture delivery sitting in the cold unappealing hallway. Rooms very large and uninviting, in fact, depressing. Very noisy people in next room who partied all night until 4:00am, kids n all in tow. Phoned and complained at 3:30am and they eventually stopped around 4ish. Parking a mission. The garage behind the building was down a tiny alleyway and other vehicles parked hard against the wall made it a very tight squeeze to get into the parking area. Very awkward and dodgy. Back entrance into the hotel, horrible! Breakfast was a joke. Sign to Restaurant went to a dead end and upon enquiring where was the restaurant we found out you had to turn into a little corridor to a door (much like a single wardrobe door) at the end of the passage that had a typed notice on it that said "Thai Style and Family Restaurant". When you went through the door you entered into a Western style bar and then through to a very cheap cafe style breakfast room. Seems it is the bar and cafe next door to the hotel. I'm assuming they contract out the breakfast to this place. Breakfast, very basic!
All in all, if I had paid $50 a night I would have expected what I got. But this is definitely not good value for the money paid. Would I go back. Never!
