6/10 Good

If you have to
The staff were fantastic. The room was very old. The drinks in the bar fridge were warm. The Wi Fi was inefficient the TV was old and the only way to keep the room cool was keep the window open. Breakfast was cold and had been sitting for some time and was very disappointing

The View
If you are staying there because you need to be close to the Alfred Hospital, it is a perfect location. Hotel was perfectly suitable for business or if you need to be in the area. Very reasonably priced and comfortable, and staff were friendly. My only suggestion to them is to at least leave some biscuits, chips, or chocolates - SOMETHING in the fridge. Especially for those that haven't had a chance to eat anything all day, or food service downstairs has closed - sometimes just having some clips in the room would suffice. I was quite ticked off at the time (perhaps Hangry)There were wine and beer in the fridge, but nothing else.

Poor Staff - One Star Hotel not 4 Star
Service of room terrible, room was not made up for 5 days. Complained at front desk and they replace towels and soap, shampoo. Room serviced later that night after complaint and made bed, did not replace sheets, took away coffee mugs and spoons and did not replace them. Had to ask reception to bring more up. Dried faeces stain on back of bathroom door, notified reception on day I left. Very small bathroom Average Pub Style food for in-room dining....not what you expect from a 4 star hotel Staff were very helpful, and most probably emabarrassed by the lack of in room service.
