This was a very modest hotel with basic facilities. Some of the services advertised on Wotif were not available eg 24 hour room service. Great location!

Good except for sounds could be heard down the hallway, you could clearly hear other guests coming or leaving their rooms.

Good accommodation and in a convenient location. Make sure you book in early for onsite parking though, or you will be stung with off site Wilson’s prices

The central location. The rooms are very dated, the bathroom showed signs of age and not overly clean, the room was extremly noisy and even being on the 6th floor proved to be no challange for the night club noise that went until 2am. The beds are very old and could do with replacement mattresses. The room was very hard to warm as the window was not sealed. The lifts proved to be a challange with waiting times of upto 12 minutes each time. The staff behind the counters were very emotionless and very hard to hear at times and only 2 staff working at busy times, like checkout times. The resturant had good food but was limited on space which lead to long waiting times to get seated.

Excellent location, friendly staff, great breakfast. Beds comfortable. Rooms were a little dated and starting to look a bit tired, but this didn’t affect our stay at all.
