It's not often you have great expectations and everyone of them is shattered within a mere hour!
This hotel charges steep prices and delivers an Ikea - Copper Art experience. It would appear that everything is done as cheaply as possible, including the instant tea and coffee selection. The rooms had lovely views but were definetly lacking in style and taste for the hefty price tag of nearly AUS $1000 per night. For these prices I expected a little more than cheap furniture, sponged walls and cheap paintings and light fixatures!
The restaurant was another huge disappointment, we didn't bother finishing our main meals as they were barely edible. We ended up leaving and having dinner in town. When we tried to report our dissatisfaction with our meals we were met with some hostility and were charged for three courses each when we only ate less then half of our entrees and mains!
I only wish I had have read the previous reviews as I would not have eaten here and will definetly not dine or stay here for these prices again. Not when Lillianfiel offers such better value and service and is right next door! Poor show Echoes!
