The price was right be the place was not! I had a room on the third floor, which by lift was scary to get too. Once in the room as per most Victorians I cranked up the AC. That evening the AC froze over and leaked all over the floor like a tap was on. I got the maintenance man to look at my AC and he said I need to leave the controls set to 22-23 degrees (bad form). Over the next 4 days it did not defrost.
The TV had very few local free to air stations as well as some Austar stations and was an old CRT that laid on top of a low bench. The shower was good and hot which was a relief.
I was glad the full breakfast was included in the price but I would not have paid the $20 for it at the restaurant. The buffet consisted of bad baked beans, average (what seemed like) powdered scrambled eggs, soggy bacon and little just cooked sausages. You would be better to go to one of the many cafes down the esplanade.
The staff were however very friendly which did help out a little. The place is close to many shops, the water and the night life. One last thing don't sit on the foyer furniture it is full of little bugs that bite.
