We stayed here when we attended a function at the Casino. Reception was difficult to find. It was on the 4th floor. We had a 5th floor room with a view over more buildings. The bed had a dip on either side, mattress not flat at all. Quite off putting. We paid almost $300 for one night. Way overpriced considering... More

We had a wonderful view of the Chinaman Creek. The location was fantastic, a 5 to 10 minute relaxing walk down the Esplanade gets you right in to the heart of the city center. There was some construction downstairs during our stay, it didn't affect our stay. Regardless of the construction downstairs, the staff were all helpful and nice, and... More
