Stayed here as a romantic weekend away. There were children everywhere running amok all throughout the hotel. While we understood that the hotel can do little about this, it really ruins the mood when they are running next to you in the bar and at dinner.
The room walls are not very well insulated so you can hear noise from the walkways.
The buffet dinner was definitely not worth the money (at $85pp). Very limited selection and average food.
The shower was not hot, the water was warm at best and only came out as a drizzle, no water pressure.
Only the bellman was nice, the remainder of the staff were generally short and unhelpful. We asked for advice from the bartender on the drinks and he just grunted and went on with what he was doing.
I wouldn't stay here again, I would stay in Katoomba just down the road where there are a greater selection of hotels.
On the plus side, the room was clean and large.
