      The pool and location.

      Linen only changed every 3 days , Manager said this was normal, I manage hotels and this is not normal, We stayed at 8 Hotels in Oz and all Hotels changed the Linen every day, Breakfast is overpriced and horrible, in a country surrounded by fruit why serve it from tins?? Oh and the deposit required during stay is way over estimated

      The beds were extremely comfortable

      very bad house keeping, bins not emptied when I checked in! Dirt and food crumbs under the throw on end of the bed. I had to ask to be moved to another room when I found the lock on the balcony door to be no existent! was not told till after I checked in that there was a $10 charge for using their car park. Reception staff very rude and arrogant!

      Location

      Service was atrocious. Left waiting at reception for 20min upon check in. Discriminated against by staff member. I'm local to the area & stayed here a few times but never been treated like this on my world travels. Will never stay here again.
