This hotel was more targetted towards older couples. The room and dining room were all adequate for staying with kids. The other couples in the dining room were older couples so I felt guilty about the childrens behaviour (being normal loud kids). Also in the rooms I could hear the people next door.

The last time I stayed here quite a few years ago the place was a bit tired and out dated. I was pleasantly surprised to find a newly decorated room with modern furniture and bathroom. The room had a small balcony overlooking a nice garden lawn area. The heater was on when I arrived - always appreciated in winter and... More

Lovely location opposite Dunedin Gardens and close to Supermarket. Good parking available. Rooms are generous with a 2 seater sofa and door opening to garden. Very comfortable bed. Only let down was having no electric blanket on bed for the winter season.

The place is good though it is outside the main parts of the city. The rooms and beds are comfortable. There is a botanical garden just across the road which is a nice place to visit. There is nothing else to visit nearby. They don't have complementary breakfast including the tariff. There are Macdonalds and Pizzahut on a walking distance.

The booking was made by work so arrived no expectations. Can't comment on value for money but feel very satisfied with our stay. Hard to point out anything majorly wrong so that's a great change when travelling a lot. Rooms nice and comfortable, with table and chairs plus couch.
