Hotel was great and staff were very friendly and booked us cabs as soon as we asked. I was very happy with our overall stay, rooms and bathroom were clean and tidy. Only thing was that it is a bit out of the main part of town if you are wanting to go out at night. About a 20 min... More

Just returned from a one night stay. The room was spacious and clean and the double bed was large and comfortable. We both enjoyed a quiet nights sleep. We ate in the restaurant for dinner (fabulous curry) and breakfast (good quality food). Overall an enjoyable stay within easy reach of the arena and city centre (about 20 minute walk to... More
