Room was suitable for my use and overnight stay. It was within walking distance of everything in the CBD. Cost was reasonable. On the negative, if I stayed longer I would have wanted a bigger room.

I was here over the weekend with the shootings and it was the only place that was open in the cbd. They were awesome. There were a lot of people there and they were working so hard.

A clean modern hotel but the room we had was too small with the bed jammed up against the wall. Everything else good though.
