I booked for three nights. Walking into the foyer, it seemed quite nice, modern, sophisticated. But the service was where the problems arise. First I came an hour early at 1pm (check in is at 2pm) so I gave told them I was there and ready to check in. They told me my room would be ready at 2. Three... More

Stayed in family room with two rooms. Plenty of room for all. Clean and comfortable at a very reasonable price that included a buffet breakfast which satisfied everyone. Staff were courteous, helpful and available. Have stayed there several times and it will continue to be one of our regular stops.

Stayed 2 nights here with friends only to find the hotel was under much needed renovations with Jack Hammers in progress on arrival . This procedure was not mentioned on the web site I used to book. The rooms were very tired,especially the bathrooms which wasn't cleaned during our stay.I could not recommend this hotel right now.

The hotel has been recently refurbished and is clean and comfortable. Front office staff were very cheerful and helpful. Had dinner in the restaurant that was very good. The buffet breakfast was excellent. Altogether a very nice place to stay at a reasonable price. Located close (5 minute walk) to the café strip and any easy drive to all the... More

After booking online then reading reviews i became weary as apparently there have been renos going on for quite some time.. the hallways look very run down (we stayed on the 1st floor) everything was nicely clean but the layout was odd with one bed blocking a cupboard and a door and the (box) television inside an old antique cupboard.....

Ongoing renovations detract from the stay and add noise from early in the morning. The restaurant is ordinary at best. The accommodation is satisfactory. It is a little bit away from the city and main attractions, but provided a reasonable base for launching our sightseeing and touring during the day by using taxis. The free breakfast (if included in your... More

This was an unexpected delightful stay ad we had heard a number of bad reviews and after being informed that a renovation had dramatically improved the hotel we decided to have an overnight stay following a friends wedding reception held in the Ballroom. A good price reduction for the wedding party provided a reasonable rate for bed & breakfast. The... More

This review is based on the room we had at the hotel. I know the hotel is presently going through refurbishment, we would have had a un-refurbished room. We had a old model CRT TV that could not be watched as it looked as though the picture tube was just about to go, we had to turn it off &... More

However parking is an issue if you turn up late this hotel has limited parking for the amount of rooms they have, and the fire alarm went off in the morning -5 outside not so good. Staff were very good breakfast was good also.

We stayed in one of the newly renovated 2 bedroom apartments. There was plenty of space and the bonus of a separate study! We loved the convenience of having an ensuite & main bathroom. The furniture in the lounge area appears to be new, and was very uncomfortable! It did not make relaxing at the end of a busy day... More
