    Fabulous

    COnvenience, friendly & helpful staff, location was walking distance to everything I needed.

    I did not realise the Special Offer room rate came without daily service. Over 5 days the junk in a room piles up. Don't recommend this option in future.

    Fabulous

    The very Australian Veranda, the trees in the road outside with the birds during the day and the bats at night and the excellent staff. Also it is very well located. Our room was spacious.

    Our room looked out on a wall. I would have liked the breakfast to extend to 0930 hrs.

    Superb

    The best thing about the Hides hotel is that it is local to most attractions and easy access to a lot of things.

    Breakfast should be until 10am as when you are on holidays most people like to sleep in.

    Cheap hotel. You get what you pay for.

    Despite reception should be 24 hrs, it was closed on arrival despite phoning ealier in day to advise arrival time. No answer to door bell or telephones until receptionist came back after about 25 mins. Rooms very old fashioned and in need of refurbishment. Staff disinterested.

    Guest rating

    The hotel is nicely located and the room was a decent size but it was by far the poorest quality hotel out of 10 that we stayed in during our trip round Australia and certainly does not justify its three and a half star rating.

    The tone is set as you walk throgh the door - the reception area is faded at best and has a very peculiar smell. The corridors were like sauna's and whilst the room we had was of a decent size - and clean - spartan would be best description it deserved in terms of decor - and this was apparently one of the "updated" superior rooms hmmm !. The swimming pool is an absolute joke in that it is effectively part of the garage and rubbish storage area. Don't stay here unless you are back packing and want a slight increase in quality from basic back packing accom for a couple of nights !!!!

    Easily accessible.

    The hotel is of budget standard at best and as such it is over-priced. The room's facilities were old and run down, the room was dusty, the curtains stained and the windows did not close. We were given a smoking room instead of our booked non-smoking room. The stench in the room was unbearable. The hotel is located next to a noisy pub. Drunk youths and backpackers were making noise outside the hotel until the early hours of the morning. The pool is located next to a filthy car park. The staff attending the breakfast room was rude.

    Superb

    The Hides Hotel is an old building with all the comfort of a well managed hotel. The continental breakfast (included in the room price!) is on the wonderful terrace with a look to the green plants of the place before.
