Disappointed breakfast finished at 9 AM on Wednesday mornings instead of 10 or 10:30 AM.... The door code breakdown + failed on my last day night so had to change me to a different room

Business Trip from Brisbane.
Good overall, but was hoping to run some content off my laptop to the TV and the HDMI input was not able to be used. Why is the HDMI/ source select de-activated on the TV?

Worth a look depending on price
Everything was fine except for the bathroom which was a 2 star job - badly leaking tap over the basin (which they were aware of) - ceiling and walls in the bathroom badly needed painting - Fridge badly iced up - couldn’t get wifi to work - given the price and a long weekend it wasn’t bad value for money.

Give the breakfast buffet a miss!
Hotel and rooms need a face lift. Dinner menu was uninspiring and the buffet was expensive and disappointing - service staffmember was not friendly, the hot food ran out and had to ask for it to be replenished, the cold water needed to be refilled but staff just filled our used glasses, there were tiny flies on the muffins and danish pastries and the pancake maker was producing 50 cent coin sized pancakes. Luckily there is a great breakfast restaurant across the road and a great steakhouse next door!
