A good solid 4 star hotel. One or two minor things that needed looking at around air-con and wifi but the staff did it efficiently and with smiles and were lovely. Nicely located hotel near Rotanga junction and the canal walks shopping mall so lots of good stuff to do there with the family. We would certainly return here when... More

Great hotel. Had a very nice and very big room. All the amenities one needs when you have a toddler in tow. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Very little to raise issue on, except for maybe having the toilet so close to the bed and only behind a glass door. May not bother most but I prefer more... More
