Loved the concert but not happy about being near the front but not able to see easily due to no staggering of seats. I would suggest being back further to give better view as the seats further back are staggered(tiered)

The beer was warm, I should have realized it would make me sick. I felt so sick the next morning after drinking it and my friend did as well. You guys should stop serving beer or if you do make sure it's good enough to serve the public. ps $2 for using the cloak room is a rip off, in... More

Great venue for meetings, conferences or workshops. Food was above average and abundant. Staff were polite and hard working. Facilities were well kept throughout the building. Parking was a bit tough as it didn't take credit cards. Not really a tourist spot but should definitely be looked at for large gatherings

Not a place for casual visits, but a decent convention centre if you have a specific trade show to attend. Also houses a large auditorium used for concerts.
