Getting into the hotel via car was confusing, as you need to cross over the light rail tracks. Staff was lovely and helpful. The room was a decent size and clean. Great amount of toiletries having them fixed in the shower. Only issue we had in the room was the light on the mirror was broken, it was flashing like you were in a disco so that couldn't be used and you also need to way taller than 150cm to see yourself in the mirror. Other than that, location was great, hotel was clean, and they have a no schoolies policy

Please do not stay here if youre after a peaceful stay. The rooms are not soundproofed so you will hear the 'nightclub' every night. The staff range from being helpful to terribly incompetent. Also do not expect them to take any responsibility if any situation occurs that is absolutely at their fault.
