It was not with excitement that I crossed the threshold of this hotel, but business calls. It is located well for Sydney Uni and RPA, or if you happen to be a custom vintage motorcycle tragic (Deus Ex Machina) or hooked on high quality stimulants (Campos [sadly not open on Sunday]).
I had room 701, on the top floor, which was a decent size, with a table and chairs, flat screen TV, and a window that was open. My view, despite the prime floor, was across to the pool an an apartment building beyond, with the assortment of junk being kept on the balconies.
The bed was OK, the pillows a little large and springy for my liking. White linen, an thin but effective blanket for what was a cool couple of nights (extra in the wardrobe, plus extra pillows). I was pleased that housekeeping did not replace the decorative cover for the foot of the bed, that I had stowed under the bedside table. It gets on my nerves taking those things off each day to get comfortable. Blinds were quite effective.
On to some negatives. The TV had poor reception, and 5-6cm of the left edge was static for every chanel. Despite the sign on the TV, the remote did not work to turn it on and of, and when I told reception, they just said 'that is how they work'. The said they would send someone to fix the static, but there was no evidence of it.
The basin was cracked, the paint worn, the fittings dated. The bathroom was average, by which I mean it was like your average suburban home bathroom. Having a full size bath is good for those who like to soak, or who have children.
So it is a place to sleep, and functioned well in that capacity. It was not a place to inspire rapture.
