One woman described her stay as ‘lovely’ but told the Daily Telegraph she ‘would think twice before staying here again.’

A tradesman working at a nearby construction site on Tuesday night said he was asked by police if he’d seen a man fleeing from the hotel.

‘We were told it may have been a suicide and there was a standoff with police then it all changed and police asked if we had seen anyone rush out of the hotel,’ he told the publication. 

Police urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 

Police said the woman was found seriously injured in a hotel room. Pictured is one of the 172 rooms at the Primus Hotel
