Excellent location....but not a 4 star room.

Enjoyed one night stay after a wedding that was in town. (CBD). Clean, pleasant staff, convenient location...but certainly didnt feel worth $300/ night that was charged. Would expect something a little more posh. But it served the need just fine.

Helpful staff however disappointed by the gym and pool

Great location. Helpful staff. Poor cleaning service and disappointing gym and pool. The room had no spare blankets which was a shame as I was cold and had to turn the heater.
