The location is good and access to the room is easy. The dinner buffet was poor - little choice, cold plates, luke warm food and rather institutional. This could also be applied to the breakfast though choice was much better. The bedrooms are rather dated and gloomy. No safe for valuables. This became a serious issue when after being out...

We were very sadly disappointed If there was an overall rating lower than "terrible", I would have chosen that option. The room pictures are nothing like reality. The lodge is very old, dark and dingy. Rooms are not always cleaned property. Aircons are super noisy so impossible to get a good nights rest with it on. It is is very...

Floreat riverside lodge does not match up with standards versus the price they charge. Rooms are so old fashioned, heater, aircon doesn't work, reception is so unfriendly, not helpful in anyway what so ever. We were not even wished a Merry Christmas on 25 December 2016. No smiles, no attempt to accommodate to meet guest request, requirements. Bar tenders think...

we arrived long after the standard occupancy time, the unit was not ready and we had to wait for about 30min to be cleaned. High school children occupied the unit next to us and I had intervene after 10 due to the noise. the unit was neatly cleaned everyday.

We stayed at Floreat for a Mountain Biking weekend, and did not have high expectations of the hotel. However even we were disappointed. The reception area and breakfast room were so outdated and in desperate need of an upgrade. The room was simple with a large window that faced the river and mountain (only positive). But the bed was old,...
