This hotel is well situated for the centre of town which is why we chose it. We also booked a superior room, however, I am not sure what was was superior about it. It was not very large and the decor and facilities were quite basic although it was clean. We took breakfast in the hotel which was reasonable, but... More

Dear David 190343 Thank you for your feedback We have noted your comments and made a particular note about the car parking issue. We have been working with an external parking company to offer an alternative for larger vehicles or when it gets very busy. This option is now available. Thank you again More

Stay was fine, until 2 days later, when we noticed an unexplained and unwarranted charge from the hotel, on our credit card. Many, many phone calls later, were told there is no reason for the charge, now battling with management to get our stolen money back. Very poor PR skills.

Way too noisy both from internal and external noise. Parking in the underground car park is an absolute shambles (use the Wilsons next door). Very tired décor. Went to get breakfast from the restaurant on Sunday morning and despite of the menu being advertised all over the hotel were told only buffet was available.

Dear Stephen_Decke, Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry we did not live up to expectation. We do have a tight car park and recently made the arrangements for alternative parking next door. I would also like to apologise for listing the breakfast menu when a buffet only was on offer. The buffet only operates on the occasions... More

We had 2 rooms on floor 4. The noise from the street was loud in the room facing the side road, but it was just as bad in the rear facing room where the street noise echoed through the multi storey car park adjacent and had the squeal of tyres in the car park added to it. Windows have to... More

The hotel is in a great central location with good restaurants nearby. While our welcome was friendly, the reception was understaffed. Limited car parking is available under the hotel at $20 per night, but you need a small car- Toyota Corolla or similar. Our room was large with one king-sized bed and two singles, all very comfortable. It was clean... More
