Fair 4.0
Poor value for money
Booked for 3 days' stay. Hotel staff seem to lack leadership. Hotel seems to lack management. Considering what they charge, the offering represents poor value for money. Inadequate lighting in rooms for reading. Very little general info available for tourists.
Sydney, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
Nice room, pricey amenities.
The room was nice. However, the price for breakfast changed every time we asked, from $20 to $28 per person for what looked like a regular breakfast. $28 can buy you breakfast for 6-8 people at the local store. They also wanted $6 per kg for laundry service.

Fair 4.0
When the hotel Manager offers to move your room due to air con not working great, follow through on your word. Very disappointed. developed a heat rash and had to sleep with wet towels to keep cool and be able to sleep. They did try and offer a free breakfast perk one morning, which we are greatfull for but that didn't make up for the aircon issue.

Very good 8.0
The location was great. The rooms and staff were nice The spa was nice. The room didn’t have a refrigerator but it had a place for one. We thought the restaurant was way overpriced for the quality. The breakfast, had we booked it, was $25.00 a person. A light lunch was $17.00. Overall it was a nice stay.

Very good 8.0
The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff were always very polite and pleasant. The pool was very nice with an 'in-pool' bar. However, the restaurant was very over-priced and there was no food service between meals, so you couldn't get a snack or sandwich if you were late for breakfast, for example.

The location was central and very close to in da belly restaurant. The hotel offered free shuttles to the falls but it was easy and safe to walk there. The staff was excellent, especially Future.

Staff was helpful and seemed to go out of the way to help. Pool was great and room and grounds were nice. Furniture was a bit dated but no big deal
