Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport, Mascot


The Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport, Mascot is located very close, just a short walk from the Sydney airport domestic terminal.

Our recent stay followed a late arrival back into Sydney from Brisbane. It is only 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Sydney domestic terminal to this hotel. The superior king room was modern, spacious, clean and quiet. The lounge area downstairs has a great atmosphere.

Mobile Phone SMS Security

When I first began to encounter SMS validation as a security measure it really annoyed me because I find it extremely presumptuous that any system developer would assume that everyone has mobile phone service or even the fact that everyone might actually have a mobile phone.

There is zero mobile phone service where I work and live and the location is less than 56 kilometers from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The closest mobile signal means a drive in the car for 20 minutes each way or a rugged climb through bush up the side of a mountain which also takes 20 minutes or more each way.

Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel Hobart


We booked 2 rooms at the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in Hobart during October 2014. This property features large rooms that are spacious and clean. As apartment style rooms the rooms are well appointed for extended stays with everything you would need for cooking and cleaning/washing.

Parking is pleniful and included, staff are friendly and helpful. During our stay we found nothing to fault with this property with either of the 2 rooms we had.

Highly recommended as an apartment style hotel in Hobart Tasmania. Walking distance to the CBD and Salamanca

Heritage Auckland

Booked this hotel for 5 nights and an Executive 1 bedroom suite was selected. This room was located in the old section of the building and was very roomy although the only windows were facing into the internal restaurant courtyard making this room dark with very little natural light. Noise from other rooms above and adjacent was very noticeable and we asked to be moved to a quieter room. The hotel obliged and moved us to a room in the new building facing the next street. This second room was smaller but much quieter and presented a good view over the harbor.

Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart

The Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart is located at 1 Davey Street in Hobart which is close to the CBD, Salamanca area etc.

The Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart Standard Room, Mountainside was a huge room with plenty of space and a King size bed. The room was clean and housekeeping could not be faulted. There is parking underneath the hotel which was included. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Hilton Cairns

Although Hotel Panganelli in Venice Italy was holding personal experience top spot for the worst hotel stay during 2013 it is now well and truly "safe as hotels" after a stay at the Hilton Hotel Cairns.

Hilton Cairns


The room we had on the 8th floor facing Cairns was very tired.

Apartment Painting

Once upon a time a type of cave was being painted and unfortunately these painters are so elite that it takes a millennium trying to find anything exceptional they have done, or a single paying cave dwelling customer they have satisfied.

To top it off the cave dwelling peasants paying these paint inhaling elite over 100 grand who thought they were were customers, see messages like these!!!
