Firstly we were allowed to check in earlier then normal as our room was ready to go which was great due to a lack of sleep the night before so that was a plus, I do however find that just 30min after laying down to have a quick sleep we get a knock on the door "minibar" what? The staff had come to check the mini bar, surely this should have been done before flagging the room to reception it is ready to go? After a check the gentleman indicated that some items were missing from the bar and if he had not checked we would have been charged for them? Ummm I don't think so.......
Anyways at $300 for the night, way overpriced for the area as not much around it, there was a continuous noise coming from the air vent in the bathroom all night, luckily we only stayed the 1 night.
Breakfast was the most disappointing, thank heavens we only paid $19 due to a voucher as the normal price for a full breakfast at "The Rise" is normally $29.95, We arrived about 9:45am to have no bread, had to ask for it and I think it must have been frozen as it appeared cold to touch, no English muffins for Eggs Benedict and limited pastries, while I appreciated that we may not have been there at 6.30am you would think you would have enough food to supply the full breakfast slot or simply shut it down and stop charging for food which has been sitting under heat lamps for extended periods and empty stations, even the yoghurt bowls were empty, luckily we could not find any bowls to get any.
These are the things people notice and I was not the only one, with another couple looking very perplexed with the breakfast offer.
Stay closer to Parramatta for better breakfast options and restaurants, I would suggest cheaper as well.
