I stayed at this hotel in the last week of January 2014. The hotel has greatly improved on service and the newly refurbished rooms are excellent. With safes, coffee makers, mini bar and 32 screen size tv's, one can almost say...Olive Gardens has finally become a hotel. I have been here several times before...and this last time was my best...

I stayed here for three days in December 2013 with my family. The staff were hospitable, quite friendly. Comfortable accommodation despite the defective shower in my room! Nice breakfast menu! Convenient location for errands in the city centre! We had a nice stay!
