          Individual guest reviews

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            It was the ultimate in luxury and just the thing needed to sweep away all the daily grind

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Colonial styling and old memorabilia, portraits, old/period furniture .... tasefully reminiscent and classy

            No air-conditioning in room ... hot at night; opening window or balcony --> dircte to main road and traffic + party noise (conference centre opposite). Bit concerned about the heavily corroded fire sprinkler system outlet in bathroom ...and lesser extent main room; rooms' chandelier type lamp broken and some bulbs not working.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Wonderful building (inside and outside); beautiful room; fantastic location.

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            No Communication from desk about booking for dinner on sat night & was rushed out of dining room by 7.00pm. Minimal items in room for a suite is less than a lot of motels eg 2 small towels in bathroom, only one cake of soap & room was very dark (small wattage bulbs). The smorgassborg lunch for $28.50 was definitely not worth the money. The only reason I had lunch in the hotel was my wife was attending the Zonta conference

          • Couple
            3.2

            Not a lot

            The room was very small (not what I'd expect of a double room at a 5 star hotel). The standard of cleanliness left much to be desired.

          • Couple
            8.4

            As soon as you arrived you were treated so well. The decor of the hotel is spectacular and it makes yu feel at home.

            Just a bit of housekeeping couldn't have gone amiss. Cobwebs of lights etc

          • Family with children
            5.4

            not the luxury hotel that i expected. the food was not of good quality - the potatoes were not cooked properly and were not as listed in the menu.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            location and old world atmosphere

            would have upgraded room if we had realsied what the extra money purchased

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Went to a netball game swam in the public pools

            It was very quiet at night and warm.

          • Single
            7.4

            The service in the dining room was very attentive. The breakfast spread was good value for money.The bed was comfortable

            The front desk wasn't always attended. There were no biscuits with a cup of tea in the room. There was no menu for room service in the room. The floor boards in the room above creaked very loadly. I know that it is an old hotel but didn't help sleep.The lighting in the bathroom was bad.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            We like the position of the hotel. It is central to everything.It is also beautifully restored.

            It was very hot during our stay. We could have done with some air conditioning, However this is not a major thing for us.

          • Single
            6.0

            The yesteryear feel a nd decor

            Could hear room next door's TV. Shower disappointing.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            The decor

            The price charged for breakfast was ridiculous and snacks bought at the bar were out of date, management seemed to be snapping at the staff and the girl behind the bar did not seem to know what she was doing

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Central location, easy access to amenities and local attractions including hot pools and other geothermal sites. Easy booking for tours of the area. Lovely hosts.

            The smell (from the geothermal sites everywhere) is not pleasant, and not 'easy to get used to'... but it is a fact of the area.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            centrally located and convinient

            I was expecting a little more from such a historic place and for $165.00/night.
