Poor 2.0
Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of here
Never in my life have I been so utterly disgusted with the room we were given. As this is booked online and you book based on the pictures supplied of rooms that looked "Really Nice" Having firstly been really surprised on arrival at how Run down the Reception area was, we started to get a very bad feeling. After a brief conversation with a less than helpful reception person we were directed to "the Annex" The entrance to the Annex is shared with a "Massage Parlour". Could this get any worse....and then we opened the door to the room. I cant really describe how poor this was but it certainly was not a room that feature in any of the marketing pictures. A general feeling of some horrible student accommodation. Pretty disgusting. We pretty much decided there and then that we would not be subjecting ourselves to this"misery" of a place. We've just travelling across the world to "this".... We kept a hold of the keys for the duration to save any other poor sucker having to be subjected to this. We booked ourselves into the Radisson on Flagstaff, Hailed a Taxi, and left this nightmare behind. Unfortunately our booking was Non-refundable. This was a room that cost about £110.00 per night !!! I was expecting much better. The Radisson cost less and were so much better. Best should be ashamed... Zero Stars

Good 6.0
Ok but would not stay again
The apartment was ok, however it smelt damp and the water in the shower did not stay at a constant warm temperature.

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to stay.
Amazing hotel. Lovely spacious apartments. Clean and with every facility you could want.
gb3 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
annoyed that even though stay was prepaid you still have to pay $100 at check in and you don't get it back for up to 10 days. Very few hotels do this now. The lift is terrible
Sheryl, au2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The stay was overall okay. Since there was a long week end, no housekeeping service during the period so can't comment on the cleanliness. One point to make is one of the front desk staff hasn't given a fair and correct answer on the hotel car park issue which we discovered later.
