Free wifi is pretty standard in most 5* hotels overseas so why is it not in Australia? Kids loved the pool.

Tourist from Canada

This is the only hotel I have ever been asked to pay 5 dollar to take our luggages to our room by the bell person upfront in the lobby!! I usually tip the bell all over the world but to be told that we need to pay is a first !!
