We spent one night while visiting family and friends. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful (with my winery questions). The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. There is ample shopping (big stores, booze, etc) and dining (Montana's, etc) within walking distance. The big plus here was the quality and diversity with the breakfast buffet.

The room had all we needed and more. Free parking outside - great Pub over the road. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with lots of healthy stuff if you were that way inclined. Shopping precinct was just over the road.
