The hotel is well positioned to town centre and has great views; however the rooms are in need of updating as they are looking quite dated and a little dirty.

Too noisy. My room was located next to the pool on the 6th floor. Inane music was blaring out of speakers by the pool. Hard to get to sleep.

Booked a Lake View King Room and was kindly upgraded to a larger suite with lake view (RM 401) which we were thankful for however the room looked old. Joinery on cupboards outdated and cupboard doors loose and hanging. Large bubbling marks on one wall where there was clearly water leaking in from outside. NO hairdryer in room and no sky tv. Shower water pressure poor. Two small balconies over looking the beautiful lake but decks were dirty so did not sit out there. Room cost $756 for 2 nights however ended up paying $785 due to surcharge (credit card surcharge is only 2% so not sure what the other $14 was for. Also car parking fee of $15 per night which they didn't charge in the end. I was looking forward to seeing the room considering it was upgraded however I was disappointed as soon as I walked in the room. We felt it was excessively expensive for the quality of the room and would not stay there again. Best part of the room was the bed, it was comfortable. Sorry.
