We liked the fact that it was close to cafes and restaurants in New Farm. Felt the room was too dark and the bathroom / toilet had no door , only a shower curtain separating the bed from the bathroom/toilet . No privacy !

We thought the room for a 5* hotel was small. Some of the appliances had parts missing and rendered their use difficult. The TV remote was really cumbersome and with no printed instructions impossible to use.
