The Accor Group has since swallowed up another lot of land and built the Novotel's cheaper sibling next to it. It's still a monopoly, no matter how they argue so prepare to pay way more than you should for an Ibis.

Function-wise, it suffices as a place to plonk your head for a night. The room is compact (they is no proper wardrobe, just a place to hang your clothes), modern and comes with all things needed (mini-fridge, flat screen TV, iron and board, Internet connection etc) to allow a business traveller, well, to rest your cerebral matter. The oddest thing about the room though is that there are no built in soap trays or anything to place your shower stuff in the shower so you literally have to bend over (yup, bad for the back) to pick up your shampoo, conditioners, shower gels and other what-have-yous from the floor just to get a simple shower. Nuclear science seems simpler. Last checked, the hotel has plans to correct this flaw. Good luck!

No pool, no gym. Lighter suitcase.

Unique Qualities: There is a ground floor cafe that serves a rather honest breakfast buffet for A$18, circa 2008.

And the service at Reception is always warm, professional and comes with a smile.
