Hi all -
Decided to stay close to Coburg for an event this weekend as the 1-1.5 hour drive for an early start was not necessary. I decided to book via airline points and saw this 4 star property within 5 minutes drive of our destination.
Check in was quick - looked at my name, offered upstairs or downstairs, we didn’t care so got downstairs. Key issued to room 5. This is where it got worrying. Heading towards the room, the rooms face each other in two stories. There were people sitting on the stairs, leaning over the balcony eyeing us as we entered. It appeared like I was entering a neighborhood and I was a new move in resident - where the housing was a few meters apart. The people outside were smoking and staring. Room 5 is in a little tunnel which was unlit.
Entering the room, everything looked ok on first inspection. The bed was made - the sheets were disturbed by us - so don’t judge on that. The bathroom really upset me - the amount of mould around the bathroom window really needs to be sorted out.
The walls had a lot of peeling and damaged paint. The room has a good air conditioner that kept us comfortable.
In terms of noise - there was a bit of carry on outside up until 9:30 but it was good and quiet for sleeping. Can’t really blame the hotel for screaming children.
The bed was good enough and sheets were clean.
The TV was good - had pay TV and good reception. Tea and coffee provisions were good.
The area is pretty rundown. We had dinner across the road at The Excelsior hotel - about a 10 minute walk basically across the road.
In summary - this would be an OK property if they cleaned up the mould. It really affected the way I felt about this property. In terms of pricing, I can’t provide any commentary as I used frequent flyer points. This is not a 4-Star property. less
