    Very good

    Reception staff were very helpful. The food was good and the room was clean. The bathroom had plenty of room on the vanity for toilet bags etc., unlike many others we stayed at which had very little.

    We had trouble in finding the Hotel. The address given, and the signage shown, did not direct you to the reception area.

    Superb

    For the price paid this hotel was excellent. We were impressed by the most helpful nature of the reception staff who seemed to go far beyond the normal call of duty.

    The site is convenient to the City Centre and the advertised price was attractive. The people were friendly.

    The room was old and very tired, the bathroom very run down and water pressure very low. The dining room ran out of food at breakfast time, all that was available was scrambled eggs or spaghtti with toast for cooked breakfast options. I waited 10 minutes, but it was a good 15 minutes before any more food was brought out. Check in and check out took a long time, the deskappeared short staffed.

    Good

    I booked because it said it had a Sauna. It hadn't had one for some time. In the room a card said see Reception if you weanted a Sunday paper. Reception said this was wrong they had told Management many times but nothing was done. Surely they could get someone to deliver them. More importantly I stayed there because they advertised Sky TV. & I wanted to watch the Aus/ NZ Rugby League game in my room at 10.00pm. It transpired they only had SS1 the game was on SS 2 & I had to go down to a bar in Town to watch it. The gym was pathetic & tatty.The questionarre asked me to rate the porters. There weren't any.Overall a disappointment for the price.
