          What is the wifi like, I.e. is it available in all rooms or just common areas of the hotel? Also, is the wifi free or if not what is the daily charge?

          The wifi is available for free in all rooms and is basic. That is you cant watch foxtel go or netflix on your iPad but can access emails, and facebook.
