It is a medium class hotel, which a part is very old (room 90 to 99). The rooms with private bathroom are small, hot water in quantity but after a certain wait.
The floor was covered with a faded and odorous carpet! The continental-style breakfast was well stocked and ready for the day.
A large wooden balcony surrounded the hotel which gave the opportunity to sit outside. A big drawback for this hotel is the presence of a pub under the balcony, the noise is quite hellish and until late at night on weekends.

Ideal hotel for those wanting a central location. 15 minutes from airport by taxi ($23)
Booking in was quick and easy, staff very helpful.
Room on the first floor was spacious and clean but basic.
No extras such as tea, coffee etc.
Bed was huge and very comfortable, air con good.

Self service laundry facilities were available (at a cost)

Breakfast the following day was served on the first floor balcony overlooking the pedestrian area and garden.
The breakfast consisted of a plentiful supply of boiled eggs, bread, cereal, juices, tea and coffee and was included in the price of the room.

The original hotel had been expanded overtime but a lot of the original hotel still remains.

I recently had a week at Hides The Location was central and perfect for my needs. There was nothing flashy at all about this hotel but everything worked and I really had no complaints Except the WIFI in the far reaches of the hotel was somewhat poor This is a large old rambling place. The Breakfast that was included is fairly spartan but it is adequate to get you going. And of course surprisingly the hotel has a pool tucked away if you are not after the normal glitz then you will find this adequate to most requirements

I stayed here for 3 nights. The first was in a heritage double room. It was awful. The curtains were broken and didn’t cover the window. One of the panes of glass in the bathroom was broken. The room was right above the pub so very loud. The air conditioner was ancient so also very loud. The shower had black mould along the bottom. The tea cups were not clean. The room was definitely not worth the price and needs to be restored/cleaned up a lot!

Breakfast was basic but pigeons were everywhere and in an attempt to get rid of them the staff sprayed them with water, which ended up on my breakfast too. Not very appealing.

In contrast, the room that I stayed in for the second and third night was lovely. Still basic but very clean and comfortable. This was in the newer part of the hotel. If you are looking for budget hostel type accommodation I’d recommend booking in this part of the hotel.

The common areas were ok. Unfortunately no air con in the hallways so it was like waking into a sauna. The heritage lift was fun to see and the stairway was beautiful. It’s a shame that they haven’t restored the rooms to make the most of the original features as it could be a really cool place to stay.

Booked through Expedia.com which stated in was an all amenities room.. no working aircon, no toilet , dirty carpet and a bed which sinks into the floor a view which looks on to another wall. Decided to book another hotel after and not even after to be changed room or a refund. Staff were rude as hell when asking for my deposit back. And wasn’t even offered an apology. These older rooms I’m the building should be classed as hostel rooms. Not a hotel paid over a huge red Australian dollars. Worst spent morning new ever

Room Tip: Avoid book a hostel instead
