    Not much

    Booked nonsmoking room. Given a non smoking room that smelt of smoke and was previously a smoking room. Apparently no other rooms available when we asked to swap

    Great location, very friendly staff all departments.

    I thought the rate was rather high for a Holiday Inn and somewhat dated property.

    The Check out person refunded us $75 after a bad night.

    The air conditioner wasn't working on an extemely hot night. Called the front desk and they said the bellboy was at the airport and we could wait until he returned or change rooms to one that smells of smoke. Or wait until maintenance arrives in the morning. We waited for about 45 minutes for the bellboy and then called the front desk and told him not to bother because we were going to bed. One of us was up most of the night not being able to breathe in the oppressive heat. Almost drove home in the middle of the night. In the morning there was a brief power outage which reset the air and it came on around 6am so we got a little sleep.

    Very good

    Sensational view from the room to the harbour region. Very close to shopping & trendy restaurants.

    The Breakfast was lousy. It tool half an hour to get the cereals. The scrumbled egg and the toast weren't freshly made and uneatable. Sticky table & arrogant waiters.
