Was a reasonable stay. Didn’t get much sleep though because you could hear all the party goers outside on the streets, even from 6 floors up. But it was a Friday night after all. Great service, convenient and the free breakfast was awesome.

I love the location of the Hotel & parking being available onsite, rooms are always spotless & clean, the room (1304) I had on this stay however had a musty smell?? But if I kept the bathroom door shut & the window open it was fine.

While staff and service was professional the room and ammenities were less than desirable. The king bed was two old single beds pushed together, many of the furnishings and appliances were broken, dirty or missing. The room felt unclean. We paid for a ‘breakfast included’ however we visited the restaurant and it was unappealing so we checked out early and went elsewhere. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Clean, great location but not fancy. Noisy taps, no wine glasses, nice king bed but mattress not comfy and curtains didnt cover the window entirely. Good price for family of four including brekky for a short stay. Kids loved the big screen TV but no sky.
