A friend from interstate secured a two-for-one deal which allowed her to afford four nights here. The room was a lower height one, with balcony view over the carpark, but as we were out every day that was not an issue.
The kitchen and laundry facilities were adequate, and thanks to a review here we brought plenty of washing and dishwashing liquid. In-house washing and drying equipment was a big plus.
My biggest gripes were
A) the pillows were not very comfortable, for sleeping, but good for reading in bed. Nice comfy beds, pillowtop mattress covers, enough blankets, but i had my best sleep using the floppier cushions from the sofa. Great sofa, nice TV watching set-up.
B) there was absolutely nowhere near enough hanging rails in the bathroom. With all the bare wall space, there was tonnes of room for many more rails for the bathmat, face washer, hand towel and both big bath towels to dry. We resorted to the dryer every time we wanted a wash. What a shame. The spa bath was a nice treat.
C) no downlights or lamps positioned at the sofa for reading. Good thing iPads and smartphones are backlit.
The aircon/heater was great, and made the room comfortable very quickly.
I think this hotel would be fabulous in summer, with the sliding doors open to catch the breezes of an evening. I would recommend it to a friend.
