We stayed for 2 nights over the long weekend. Called the reception a few times, requested for the room to be serviced when we were out. When we came back late afternoon, the room has not been cleaned at all. Noone seems to know where the request was. The common facilities (Pool, gym) are running down. No foxtel.

My family and I couldn’t be happier with our stay at the hotel. From the get go the team were extremely accommodating and made our stay special with a bottle of wine and a thank you for staying with us note. They also provided a Easter egg hunt which was a nice personal touch. From the cleaning lady who was...

The hotel it's self needs a good renovation, rooms are ok but for $400 a night you can get 200% better. Not benefits offered for being platinum either. Bar lacks atmosphere. I would not recommend this hotel, check others in the area first.
