          My first room (no2) was pretty average. Noisy air conditioner and even noisier ceiling fan. I asked to move and the staff were accomodating and put me in room 19. Pretty happy with that room, but still overpriced. The hotel is well located though, close...More

          I paid $280 a night for a standard room. The 5 star intercontinental hotel Rialto in Melbourne is $295 a night just for comparison. BUT this is a remote location and operating costs would certainly be higher. The breakfast that is included is basic and...More

          Hi, I'm receptionist on the Front Office team at this property. Nobody has ever been charged $310 for a room. Thus difficult to reach any conclusion other than your review is fake.
