3 star at best.
For a Hilton it was a disappointing stay. Having experienced the best service on the Ghan the rest went down hill quite fast. Absolutely chaos at checkin for my mother who was offloaded at the wrong Hilton hotel and forced to wheel her case to the correct location, not bad for a 90 year old but not good enough. No porters on hand and not enough staff to manage the volume of customers. The next day she had to move rooms and was guaranteed there would be no issues. Incorrect, they could not find the booking and the new room was not made available until after 2pm. Breakfast team were unable to serve lactose free milk and made no attempt to obtain any. No bottled water in the rooms even as part of the minibar. I have stayed in more equipped less rated hotels. Wouldn’t go back.

Lovely hotel
Room was comfortable and location was great for kids with playground across the road, although didn’t accommodate for extras in the room ie towels, cups etc!! Parking is easy. Make sure you have the right address as confusing with two hotels with same name next door to each other.
