    Far too expensive

    The breakfast is good but totally overpriced. The food in the restaurant is also good.

    This is a very basic offering with a terrible location. It's far from everything except a supermarket. The rooms are small. The staff are on the whole friendly but ironically the senior staff have a tendency to get a bit snappy. Overall I'd question how much they're getting paid, either it's low or the management culture sucks all the fun out of working there- my observation after 3 weeks there is that it would be both. I would question just what exactly "by Rydges" is supposed to denote in terms of quality- the suggestion here being that Rydges has obviously gone down hill to be associated with this hotel.

    Roomy, clean, comfortable

    Terrible hours on food service (ends early and there is nothing around), no vending machines or anything after 9:30 PM, no ice machines, no nothing.

    The Staff were friendly and very helpful, Nothing was too much trouble. The Girls always greeted e with a smile. Very impressed.

    Two problems only with my stay. Firstly the chairs in the Restaurant are far too low for comfort and the tables don't accommodate ones legs with ease,Secondly Cafenet inernet connection is useless. I paid $20 and had 5 minutes use of it as I continued to be cut off. It took 4 phone calls to their help desk also one call from your Reception to the help desk, which still didn't solve the problem. Need to change it. I heard the same complaint from other guests
