4/10 Fair

#308 - adjoining room/door. Occupants (many) in room next door making noise (loud voices). We did not contact reception to make a complaint as Reception was closed when we returned to the hotel (apparently meal break for staff) had a sign (clock) on door indicating back at 8 o’clock - misleading as we assumed it was for 8AM next morning.

Very clean rooms
Excellent service, very clean rooms and central location. The rooms are a decent size and very clean. Nice comfortable bed with crisp clean linens and nice quality pillows. Block out blinds and the windows are double glazed so the room in nice and quiet. Functional little kitchenette, equipped with microwave, kettle, toaster, basic crockery & cutlery and nice matching glassware. The bathroom is very clean. Good sized shower recess, with really good shower pressure and again very clean. Environmentally friendly large toiletries. Bathroom has great ventilation and good lighting to put your make up on, loads of spaces to hang your towels. The hotel is in a fabulous location – great for walkers or there is a tram stop right out the door to your right. You can walk from Spencer Street station to the Alto, you literally walk across the street. Walking distance to city centre, casino, bars & restaurants, convenience stores, DFO etc
