Fair 4.0
Cheap and shabby. No proper reception area. Not cleaned properly. Previous tenants credit cards in drawer. Bed was very comfortable but stains on quilt. Had two bedside lights but could only turn one on as there was no powerpoint to plug the other one into. Room smaller than our caravan. Late night reception staff was sullen and unhelpful. Wont be staying again or in any other breakfree hotel.

Good location..was super hammered coming home after a night out, had about 15 schooies. Kebab shop just up the road, so I smashed one of those on the walk back which was only 5mins. Ended up spewin it up in the sink (sorry bout that)... only critic was the sink didn't drain well so I couldn't wash the spew down properly. But overall enjoyed the stay.

ca5 night trip
Fair 4.0
The hot water system was poor and often lost all heat, so cold showers! There were rusted and exposed screws on the show soap tray! There was no soap tray near the bathroom sink. The instant coffee was undrinkable!The ironing board would not lock into place unless I manipulated it. Quite frankly, I would advise against staying there. It appears that it is "the hotel that senior management forgot”. I got the distinct impression that the staff (who were professional and who did their best) were abandoned here.
Duncan, au6 night trip
Good 6.0
The property was in a great location close to where we needed to go for medical reasons walking distance to Darling Harbor as well as the tram. Was disappointed in the cramped conditions and the beds were very uncomfortable with the existing padding no longer there and stains on child's doona looked nothing like the picture that is shown to fill out survey.
