          • Couple
            6.6

            The location was very handy for what we were there for.

            It seemed very unfinished in some parts and I think our room seemed very old and the car park is not very easy to use,

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Good room good location helpful staff good view

          • Family with children
            9.2

            The hotel was in a very convenient location and the staff were very friendly. The foyer and room were nice and the restaurant was convenient and served good food. The value for money was good and I would recommend the hotel to friends and family.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            The location was good - close to central business district and shopping as well as the river walk.

            The room was below standard in many respects. It was very dark, the one window overlooked some sort of air shaft, the bathroom light, if it worked at all, was so dim that we had to use flashlights while taking showers. The air conditioner was not up to the task of cooling the room sufficiently. Dealt with two hotel staff members. One was not the least bit helpful and provided wrong information. The other was very helpful. This was the worst experience I have had with Best Western and the low point of our trip to Australia.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Spacious with good view

            No milo or hot chocolate as a hot drink option

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Everything was very good and exceeded my expectations. For my next business trip I will look at Astor rates and availability first

          • Single
            7.4

            Location for medical services.

            Reception staff was pretty vauge and distracted

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Proximity to city, performing arts etc Entrance decor is superb can't wait to see the finished renovations

          • Family with children
            4.6

            Access to city was good.

            Father and son team and only one bed made up other had to sleep on couch and make do with spare quilt and pillows. Bathroom around edges of floor in front of toilet etc not cleaned properly and didnt look good. No drinks in fridge or biscuits for tea or coffee. Over all for what we paid for room we were somewhat disappointed.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The beds where comfy as where the pillows nice and full of body.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            We found the restaurant staff to be excellent and the meals we great.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Central city location near a park room with a balcony and view over the city parking available (at a cost)

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            The hotel was in a convenient position to Central railway station and also the City centre.It was generally well maintained and staff seemed to be helpful.

            The lack of any pay TV channels was disappointing as was some minor maintenance issues with the lifts.The major issue was that there was renovations being done to the front of the building but this was not reflected in the room rate.

          • Single
            7.4

            The balcony and I liked the option of room service as had long day's doing business. The room was quite spacious for a single room, and the bed very comfortable. I like that you could buy a bottle of wine onsite. And the staff were mostly very lovely.

            The food is horrendous! As having long days doing business I preferred to order room service and did so twice. Big mistake.......the last night decided to purchase my own food from a deli. There was also a sewerage smell in the bathroom which was quite small and the shower not great.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Great location if catching the Airtrain- can purchase tickets from reception to save time.
