Don't bother! A review of BEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel Stellar

You know there is going to be a problem when there are ear-plugs in the top drawere next to the bed. Yes, despite the fact that the hotel is just of Oxford Str - I definitely would not recommend the hotel (not even if you want a prime spot for Mardi Gras).

The hotel is on a very busy street and does not have double-glazed/sound-proof windows ... in fact, the 50 year-old air-conditioning units are so poorly fit that even if there were double-glazing, the noise would still keep you up at night. And as for the pictures of the hotel on their website ... pity they didn't give a 360 degree view showing the collection of 1970s mis-matched furniture and kitchenette and the minute bathroom with its leaking plumbing, splintered door and filthy air vent.

Even at AUD125 a night, I definitely wouldn't bother.

And PS... what ever you do, if you need to change your booking or are going to arrive a little late due to a cancelled/re-scheduled flight, don't expect any sympathy from the hotel, you WILL be charged unless you give 48 hours notice (not 24 hrs); if you question it, all you will get (repeatedly) is "I fully understand, but it is our policy".
