Wrong Rooms

Hotel was excellent although we had booked two superior kings and were saddled with two twin doubles. This may not sound like a big deal but we booked this hotel on the room type and it wasn't honoured. If we wanted twin doubles we have booked twin doubles...it's an obvious ploy and we won't be back.

Excellent location, but...

Hotel is in a great location, and very well presented, very pleasant staff. Unfortunately, as with so many other hotels, they subscribe to the myth that soft beds are best. Not true! The down mattress topper made for a very uncomfortable night. If I'd been staying longer, I'd have had it removed.

not going back again!

the basin was extremely small and low, I wonder if this was designed for kids to use only?! the shower water was extremely small. it was very hard to fill up the kettle with cold water, I had to use another glass to hold the water first then pour the water into the kettle. the valet car park was shocking, I don't think they have enough spaces to cope with, we got guided by one of the hotel staffs to park at a place that was not even a car park. (at least when we checked out, we didn't get charged $12 for the valet parking fee) It was not worth $190 per night, and I don't think I will ever go back to this hotel again.

Relaxing Stay

I love staying at the Southern Cross Scenic Circle. The rooms are really nice, and the beds are amazing. I was travelling with my mother-in-law and the only trouble she had with her room was the shower-which is over the bath. The staff were great and offered to change her to a room with a shower-so something to consider when booking. Actually all the staff are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is easy to find off the main roads and only about 4 blocks from the Octagon, so within walking distance to town if you like to walk. They also have off street parking at $12 a night, which is great. There is a restaurant and a bar at the Hotel, so no real need to eat out, and then there is the Casino right upstairs also. A nice place for a bit of a treat
